Tell the AKC to Stop Protecting Puppy Mills!

The American Kennel Club (AKC), which calls itself “The Dog’s Champion”, has been actively working against puppy mill legislation. States across the US have been trying to stop cruel puppy mills through legislation that creates basic standards of care for commercial breeding facilities. The AKC has opposed over 150 bills that would have brought humane standards to puppy mills. HB 159 in North Carolina is the latest bill the AKC opposes.
Brother Wolf Animal Rescue started this petition to ask the AKC to stop protecting puppy mills. The AKC can start by supporting HB 159 in North Carolina.
HB 159 would require the same standards the AKC already promotes to all its member breeders. The reason the AKC gives for their opposition is the legislation is “confusing”. We believe the truth comes down to the bottom line. The AKC collects millions in registration fees from breeding dogs and new litters. Humane investigators say a significant part of AKC annual revenues come from puppy mills that breed dogs en masse for maximum profit and with little regard for basic living standards.
At Brother Wolf Animal Rescue, we have seen firsthand the brutality of puppy mills. We are often called to help rescue the dogs when a puppy mill is shut down or abandoned. North Carolina, where we are based, has become a haven for puppy mills in the US because it’s one of the few states with no laws governing commercial dog breeding. More puppy mills were busted in North Carolina last year for animal cruelty than in any other state.
Sadly, humane investigators report that many of the dogs rescued from puppy mills are AKC-registered and the facilities previously inspected by the AKC.
It is time the AKC became a true champion for dogs by stopping the cruelty at puppy mills. They should be supporting bills like HB 159, not opposing them. Please join us in calling for the AKC to stop protecting puppy mills by supporting HB 159 in North Carolina.
Don't make it illegal to feed Anaheim and Disney cats

Cats are starving and dying in Anaheim due to a new city code that went into effect at the start of the year. The law makes it illegal to feed any feral cat in the city of Anaheim unless contracted with the city. Not only is it hurting the cats, it is turning good-hearted people into criminals.  Even Disneyland, who has its own famous feral cat community it cares for, will no longer be allowed to care for its cats. A city code that hurts animals and makes criminals out of good people is a bad city code.
The Anaheim Fix Project, a group dedicated to spaying and neutering feral cats, started this petition calling on the city of Anaheim to amend city code 1301 to allow non-contracted groups to care for the cats.
The Anaheim Fix Project became aware of the problem when people working to help the cats were being threatened with fines or even jail time. Our own group uses feeders to help us collect cats for spay and neutering. The work we do is essential in keeping the feral cat population lower. This new code says our work is illegal because we are not contracted with the city. That is wrong and does more harm than good.
Not only do a number of non-contracted groups do much of the needed work to care for and keep the feral population down, they save taxpayer money by providing these services through donations and volunteers. If this city code is allowed to stay in place the taxpayer will be forced to foot the bill and many of these cats will die.
We don’t have to make that choice. Let’s work together to help prevent these animals from suffering. By amending the code to include all groups like the Anaheim Fix Project and corporate citizens like Disney, we can ensure these animals are cared for and their population controlled.
Please join us in calling for the city of Anaheim to amend city code 1301 to allow non-contracted groups to care for the cats.

I figure this group would be interested in at least reading about this documentary and perhaps also sharing it around with those who you feel would also want to help out.…
