Wayne Pacelle, CEO of the Humane Society of the United States, had a blog post yesterday about the progress being made in trying to eliminate puppy mills. You can see the blog post here, but one of the things I found most exciting is that rallies are being organized for THIS WEEKEND across the nation at Petland stores, where puppy mill puppies are still being sold. Click here to find a rally in your area. What better way to spend the day before Mother’s Day than advocating for the four-legged babies who can’t fend for themselves?
Until next time,
Good day, and good dog!

This is a press release of the sortsr—There’s a terrific new piece of fiction on the market entitled “A Cold Breed” that focuses on the vivid shutdown of a realistic puppy mill. Swing by the author’s website for more information: caseyoryan.com
The Doggies.com blog should be commended for drawing attention to the scourge of puppy mills. There is no reason for reputable hobby breeders to be threatened by attempts to regulate large-scale commercial dog breeding facilitites known as puppy mills. In fact, it is in their best interest to see the bad apples called to task. Petland shouldn’t be propping up factory-style breeding operations where dogs are caged all day with no socialization or enrichment, minimal veterinary care, and miserable, unsanitary conditions. Even if you put animal welfare concerns aside, consumer protection laws fall far short of ensuring that businesses like Petland are selling healthy, behaviorally sound puppies.
It will be difficult to educate a person who calls dogs “four legged babies” and considers her/him self a “pet parent”. Of course dogs cannot fend for themelves.. actually they could as cats do very well at this.. but the picture would not be pretty. Dogs and cats are DOMESTICATED animals who eat .. MEAT.. What will your pet eat when meat is no longer available or is so expensive that you will have to make a choice .. me or the dog/cat? Wayne Pacelle and his cohorts at the H$U$ advocate veganism for all human beings and JP Goodwin ( H$U$ higher up who advactes for the killing of ALL ‘Pit bulls” as did Pacelle in the Vick case” “our goal is complete abolishion of animal agriculture”.. COMPLETE..that means NONE.. no domesticated farm animals ergo.. no MEAT.. hunting?? NO says the H$U$.. and so on. This subject has been covered pretty well by those before me. meanwhile look up “conflict rundraising” to familiarize yourself withwhat the S$U$ really stands for..you can start here
While you are out ther picketing.. ask anyone what the definition of a “puppy mill” is….answer.. it is whatever the H$U$ says it is.. the brush is broad.. and i would not be suprised if a few of your co picketeres would be caught with H$U$ paint on them…

The Doctor is right on . Pet owners are clueless to what animal rights organizations real agena is You might want to check out sites like
“Puppymill” is the new bait and switch effort from animal rights. It is an attempt to cure a non problem with a new legislative solution that will effectively eliminate all breeders – no more doggies in the windows.
There are already laws against inhumane treatment of animals. There are laws governing commercial kennels. Enforce those laws and leave law abiding people alone including PetLand.
Already the “solutions” provided by H$U$ have caused suffering to horses across the USA, “rescued” fighting dogs murdered by their rescuers in mass, and to hens in California. They are undermining the food supply for the whole nation.
I cannot add a single thing! Perfect description and assessment.
Wake up, John Q Public!
If you knew the true H$U$ agenda, they would go broke (in my dreams) because you would never donate to these ‘true believers’ who will say anything (lie) to cover the truth to attain their goals, which they disguise with lies, sordid photos (sources unknown, many are 20+ years old and no longer occur, etc.) Notice the sensational “busts” occur just days before or after a punitive bill is ushered into a state, deftly crafted and handed directly from the H$U$ to misled legislators. f they knew the truth, these bills would die in every single jurisdiction.
Send us money. Poor puppies and kitties – oh, did we say?- send us money!
You gotta be kidding Wayne Pacelle has killed 127 dogs just this past month of which 67 were puppies. The HSUS is not animal welfare they are radical animal rights who believe in the extinciton of all domestic animals. Follks wake up they are coming for your pets next.
The animal rights movement portrays itself simply as a group of people who are concerned with the mistreatment of animals. That’s an easy position to sell in America where a large portion of population has pets. However, there is an undercurrent of violence, extremist positions, and even anti-human views that runs through the animal rights movement. People who are giving their money to these groups need to understand that it is used to push an agenda that is intended to severe completely the human animal bond. It is not to save wildlife or to protect domestic animals, but to severe this bond for no other reason than they think only animals that can survive on their own should be alive.The Agenda, We have no ethical obligation to preserve the different breeds of livestock produced through selective breeding. …One generation and out. We have no problems with the extinction of domestic animals. They are creations of human selective breeding ** Wayne Pacelle * Director of HSUS
Despite the words “humane society” on its letterhead, the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) is not affiliated with your local animal shelter. Despite the omnipresent dogs and cats in its fundraising materials, it’s not an organization that runs spay/neuter programs or takes in stray, neglected, and abused pets. And despite the common image of animal protection agencies as cash-strapped organizations dedicated to animal welfare, HSUS has become the wealthiest animal rights organization on earth.
HSUS is big, rich, and powerful, a “humane society” in name only. And while most local animal shelters are under-funded and unsung, HSUS has accumulated $113 million in assets and built a recognizable brand by capitalizing on the confusion its very name provokes. This misdirection results in an irony of which most animal lovers are unaware: HSUS raises enough money to finance animal shelters in every single state, with money to spare, yet it doesn’t operate a single one anywhere.
Instead, HSUS spends millions on programs that seek to economically cripple meat and dairy producers; eliminate the use of animals in biomedical research labs; phase out pet breeding, zoos, and circus animal acts; and demonize hunters as crazed lunatics. HSUS spends $2 million each year on travel expenses alone, just keeping its multi-national agenda going.
HSUS president Wayne Pacelle described some of his goals in 2004 for The Washington Post: “We will see the end of wild animals in circus acts … [and we’re] phasing out animals used in research. Hunting? I think you will see a steady decline in numbers.” More recently, in a June 2005 interview, Pacelle told Satya magazine that HSUS is working on “a guide to vegetarian eating, to really make the case for it.” A strict vegan himself, Pacelle added: “Reducing meat consumption can be a tremendous benefit to animals.”
Shortly after Pacelle joined HSUS in 1994, he told Animal People (an inside-the-movement watchdog newspaper) that his goal was to build “a National Rifle Association of the animal rights movement.” And now, as the organization’s leader, he’s in a position to back up his rhetoric with action. In 2005 Pacelle announced the formation of a new “Animal Protection Litigation Section” within HSUS, dedicated to “the process of researching, preparing, and prosecuting animal protection lawsuits in state and federal court.”
HSUS’s current goals have little to do with animal shelters. The group has taken aim at the traditional morning meal of bacon and eggs with a tasteless “Breakfast of Cruelty” campaign. Its newspaper op-eds demand that consumers “help make this a more humane world [by] reducing our consumption of meat and egg products.” Since its inception, HSUS has tried to limit the choices of American consumers, opposing dog breeding, conventional livestock and poultry farming, rodeos, circuses, horse racing, and marine aquariums, .
What are the 12 steps of the the animal rights agenda?
1. Abolish by law all animal research. (There would be no cures for AIDS, cancer, heart disease, etc., and testing of new drugs would be done on humans, or not at all.)
2. Outlaw the use of animals for cosmetic and product testing, and classroom demonstration (physicians would perform their first surgeries and procedures on humans without any previous experience).
3. Vegetarian meals should be at all public institutions, including schools.
4. Eliminate all animal agriculture (resulting in no milk, eggs, chicken, fish, or meat for food, no leather for shoes or clothing). (How many foods do you eat that contain eggs or dairy products, or a derivative of the same? Did you know your keyboard and mouse may have been made with animal products?)
5. Eliminate all herbicides, pesticides or other agricultural chemicals. Outlaw predator control.(Farmers would not be able to produce as much food as they do now, driving the cost of living up, and eliminating the export of food to hungry nations. Animals such as coyotes are already a problem in some areas, coming into yards to eat garbage and prey upon outdoor pets.)
6. Transfer enforcement of animal welfare legislation away from the Department of Agriculture. (Animal issues would be controlled by people with little or no experience in customary animal husbandry.
7. Eliminate fur ranching and the use of furs.
8. Prohibit hunting, trapping and fishing.
9. End the international trade in wildlife goods.
10. Stop any further breeding of companion animals, including purebred dogs and cats. Spaying and neutering should be subsidized by state and municipal governments until all companion animals are extinct. Abolish commerce in animals for the pet trade. Eliminate pet ownership.
11. End the use of animals in entertainment and sports (resulting in no horse shows, cat or dog shows, animal actors, rodeos, animal movie stars).
12. Prohibit the genetic manipulation of the species (resulting in the elimination of critical medical research relating to Cancer, AIDS and other life threatening diseases, as well as crop production improvements such as the difference between the Holstein and the Angus, and eliminate all pedigreed animals, etc… ).
You may sympathize with one of the points above… however, do you agree with all of them? If you disagree with only some, you cannot, in good conscience, continue to support the animal rights agenda with donations or support of their legislation. For example, I happen to agree with item 9, above, but if I send money to the animal rights groups, it may be used to support items with which I disagree.
