Tables turned on Humane SocietyTables turned on Humane Society

The Humane Society of the United States, an organization that does next to nothing for animal shelters but sues, badgers and lobbies politicians and businesses into adopting its radical animals rights agenda, is getting a taste of its own medicine.

Latest news on pet jerkey treats from China

There is a new USDA Proposed Rule that has been written in an effort
to control internet sales of puppies from puppy mills. However, the rules
will affect all breeders with 4 or more breeding females who sell a puppy to
a buyer who does not physically come to your residence to buy the puppy.
There is no definition of a breeding female and this is one of many faults
this bill has. It will require anyone with 4 or more breeding females (what
ever that means) to have to have a USDA license and you will be subject to
inspections. It affects sales of puppies out of state when the buyer does
not come to your home, even if it is to someone you know.

There is a comment period open right now and all comments will be
considered if received on or before July 16, 2012. I urge you to read the
proposal and send in your comments.

Here is the link to the proposal:

Here is a link to Q&A on the proposal which helps to put it into
perspective. Keep in mind you as a breeder will be considered a retailer
under the proposal if you sell a puppy to a buyer who has not physically
come to your home:

Here is the link to the info on the AKC site which helps to summarize
the proposal and can assist you in what you write to USDA:

Here is the link to submit your comments to the USDA:!documentDetail;D=APHIS-2011-0003-0001

Please let your voice be heard. If every breeder and every all
breed and specialty club were to stand up and speak their position, we would
have a tremendous amount of strength in being heard. Please forward this
to your breed lists, clubs, and friends.
