Take action now to help stop puppy mills!

Because of inadequate laws and enforcement, puppy mills have proliferated in Quebec. An estimated 2,000 puppy mills operate in the province, producing well over 400,000 puppies annually.

Puppy mills are large scale operations that force "breeder dogs" to produce litter after litter to support consumer demand for purebred pets. These puppies are sold to pet stores across the country and directly to the public over the internet, through newspapers and at the mills. Hidden from the public is the suffering, disease, malnutrition, and loneliness of the breeding dogs confined in the puppy mills. Moreover, puppies produced in puppy mills often suffer from genetic weaknesses and disease, leading to unanticipated, substantial veterinary costs for the unsuspecting purchaser.

BUT YOU CAN HELP: Please join us in writing to your provincial representative and Premier Jean Charest to demand stronger penalties and adequate enforcement of the law.
