Re: “Prayer pal

Currently it is a free for all in Arkansas for breeding dogs. We have no regulations or minimum standards set for commercial breeding facilities. We have around 500 USDA licensed kennels in the state and approximately 2000 commercial breeders that are not licensed. Most of the commercial breeding facilities in Arkansas have 100-500 dogs and most have no staff. Puppies are sold in parking lots, flea markets and through the newspaper or internet. Our state's puppy lemon law in not adequate as it only applies if you purchase a puppy from a pet store. It is time for Arkansas to stop killing dogs in shelters and regulate commercial breeders.

FOXY,,,,, we do not eat dogs. We do not use their skin or fur for anything. We have regulations galore on hunting wildlife in this state. You cannot kill a duck and leave it in the field. If you kill a duck you must de-breast the bird or get fined. However, we all sit back and think it is ok to kill thousands of dogs for ONE reason... there are too damn many of them and not enough homes. Does this seem crazy to you FOXY? Again, this is about companion animals not farm animals. Hell at least we actually use those animals for many things. At least they don't die without a purpose. At least we are respectful to animals raised for food and our wildlife.

I am done with rationalizing the killing that goes on behind closed doors at our shelters. People need to stop breeding dogs unless you are a spectacular breeder with ethics galore.

Here is a good example of just ONE of Arkansas puppy mill.. This has to stop and let's hope our legislators get it stopped.

Thank God for Desiree Bender and all that she is doing in this state to help animals. We have come so far because of her leadership!
