Since 1999, the
Wisconsin Puppy Mill Project has been working hard to educate the public about
the miserable conditions in pet mills, pet shops and other pet facilities.
Through our programs and services we have also provided education to law makers
and fought for tougher state laws to govern the breeding and sale of pet
animals of all species.
to YOU, our efforts have succeeded and a new law has been passed in Wisconsin
(2009 Act 90).
OUR WORK has just begun. Sadly, there are still abuses; there are still dogs
needing our help. Some commerical breeders have found or created
"loopholes" to evade regulation; some have even gone
"underground". Some licensed breeders may only "spruce up"
when an inspector is expected.
help, Wisconsin Puppy Mill Project will be there to continue the fight to close
up those loopholes and ferret out the "underground" breeders, brokers
and sellers as well as to lend our support to other critical animal issues,
such as the use of dogs to hunt wolves in
Wisconsin and the expansion of Act 90 minimum standards of care to ALL dogs in
Wisconsin -- not just those in the care of licensed dog sellers.
100% of your donation
will be used directly for our programs and services:
Direct care to animals for vet bills, food and rescue expenses (including
aid to shelters overburdened by confiscations from animal cruelty cases).
Educational materials and our website, to support enforcement of Act 90,
oppose the use of dogs to track and hunt wolves in Wisconsin, try to expand Act
90- type standards of animal care protection to ALL dogs in the State of
Wisconsin, and continue to encourage other states as they engage in their own
anti-puppy mill campaigns,
