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

Volunteers from the Appleton, WI, No Wisconsin Puppy MIills group set up an informational table at the Oshkosh Pet Expo.


       There are many ways you can help end suffering in Puppy Mills. We are always greatful for people who help us Get the Word Out, either through protests or through informational tables/booths at pet-themed events, county fairs, shelter fund-raisers, etc.

       On 15 - 16 March 2008, the No Wisconsin Puppy Mills Group in Appleton, Wisconsin set up an informational table at the Oshkosh Wisconsin Pet Expo. Cathy G. reports from the first day:

       We talked all day until we are all hoarse. Many people stopped at our booth to ask about puppy mills. Seems the bust in Wood County has spurred a lot of interest and a lot of talk. Many people were not aware of the plight of the puppy mill dogs, and we did our very best to educate them and encourage them to contact their lawmakers, and check the NO puppy mill site.

       As of the end of today, we've thus far collected 161 signatures, and approx. $100.00 in donations (have not counted change yet). We even ran out of petition sheets, and Karen had to run out to have some extras made. While she was there, she educated the people making the copies, and they signed the sheet as well. Way to go Karen!

       Hope we made some headway for the fur kids today.

       NOTE: In 2009, the Wisconsin State Legislature unanimously passed Act 90, a law regulating dog breeders and sellers in our state. Since Act 90/s.173.41, the WI Dog Seller Program went into effect in June 2011, MANY breeders and sellers have been regulated and have either given up the business OR have come into compliance under ACT 90. If you have personally encountered any problems with any Wisconsin dog seller) please see our How To File a Complaint With the WI Department of Agriculture, Trade, and Consumer Protection page.

       And though the remaining commercial breeders in Wisconsin are now subject to regulation, the fact remains that this isn't the way ANY dog should have to spend its entire life. Please keep telling people NEVER TO BUY PUPPIES FROM PET STORES!!!!


Visitors to the WPMP table at the Oshkosh Pet Expo take the time to sigh the No Wisconsin Puppy Mills petition.
