Protest Puppy Mill Parlor

Protest Puppy Mill Parlor

Thank you to everyone who has joined our protests at Puppy Mill Parlor.   We have not had the police called on us since we have video cameras taping our protests.  So, Tammy and Mary, you can no longer flip us off, swear at us, have your puppy mill pipeline friends swear at us, flip us off, etc.  Those days are over.    

 

It’s 9:00 AM on Sunday and since 2:00 yesterday afternoon, my dogs have been walked, fed, played with, slept in soft beds, etc.  The dogs in the back room of Puppy Mill Parlor have been locked in cages and they still have 2 hours to go till the store opens.  But then again, so what???  They still don’t get out of the cages.  In my opinion, this is animal abuse.  This is not humane care and treatment. 

The Animal Welfare Act States:

 

(510 ILCS 70/3) (from Ch. 8, par. 703)
    Sec. 3. Owner's duties. Each owner shall provide for each of his animals:
        (a) sufficient quantity of good quality, wholesome

    

food and water;

        (b) adequate shelter and protection from the weather;
        (c) veterinary care when needed to prevent suffering;

    

and

        (d) humane care and treatment.
    A person convicted of violating this Section is guilty of a Class B misdemeanor. A second or subsequent violation is a Class 4 felony with every day that a violation continues constituting a separate offense. In addition to any other penalty provided by law, upon conviction for violating this Section, the court may order the convicted person to undergo a psychological or psychiatric evaluation and to undergo any treatment at the convicted person's expense that the court determines to be appropriate after due consideration of the evaluation. If the convicted person is a juvenile or a companion animal hoarder, the court must order the convicted person to undergo a psychological or psychiatric evaluation and to undergo treatment that the court determines to be appropriate after due consideration of the evaluation.
