Scenes From a Puppy Mill: Goodbye, Mama.

What Is A Puppy Mill?   *   What Can I Do About It?   *   Laws/Legislation   *   ACTION ALERTS!

A newly purchased puppy says goodbye to his mother, whose fur is stained orange from the rust in her cage.

       Pretty Penny Kennels, Plymouth, WI — A newly purchased puppy says good-bye to his mother. The pup, named Scratch, had altogether too short a life due to a congenital disease from poor breeding. Nothing further is known about the mom, who probably never had a name.

       Remember the rusty wire mesh in the previous photo? Mama Westie's fur is stained from the rust in her cage. See The Story of Scratch: A Courageous Little Dog for the photographer's impressions of the conditions these dogs were kept in, and also for more about Scratch, the pup.

       Pretty Penny Kennels is described in detail in A Visit To A Wisconsin "Puppy Farm" and in WTMJ's report, "Inside a Puppy Farm"

     UPDATE: In 2011, Pretty Penny Kennels applied for and was granted a "temporary license" under WI Act 90. However, Mr. Schulz declined to upgrade his facilities to comply with the new regulations, so was denied a permanent license.

     Under the law, Mr. Schulz may still sell fewer than 25 dogs a year, from three litters. If you have reason to suspect that he is selling more dogs, or are concerned about the conditions in which his remaining dogs are being kept, please see our Filing a Complaint page for details on how to contact DATCP with your concerns!
