PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE SHARE!!!! This woman has been running an illegal puppy mill in a residential neighbourhood near where I live. They are going to court TOMORROW (Thursday) to decide whether or not she should be granted a license, which would result in her being able to continue what she’s doing with minimal inspection. You can read the report from the humane officer and get more information here: http://washingtondc.craigslist.org/nva/pet/3594198477.html

To break it down:

-she starved at least 2 litters of puppies

-dogs are kept in almost total darkness

-most of the dogs are in crates, with minimal breaks

-conditions are disgusting

-many of these dogs are visibly ill with mange, conjunctivitis, or upper respiratory infections which are NOT BEING TREATED

-dogs do not have regular access to water

This is deplorable and disgusting. Please email don.delrosso@fauquiercounty.gov. BE RESPECTFUL. They are REQUIRED to consider EVERY petition they receive. If you bash the officials, they will be much more likely to discredit your response.
