The Alliance provided the critical MDA inspection reports and the graphic photographs documenting the violations at Puppy Love Kennel to officials within USDA. We asked Dr. Robert Gibbens, USDA’s Director of Animal Welfare Operations, to explain why his Agency continues to pass Puppy Love Kennel in spite of the documentation of serious neglect by the state inspectors.
The Alliance invited Dr. Gibbens to personally inspect Puppy Love Kennel due to the horrifying reports by the state.
Our request was rebuffed by Dr. Gibbens who replied that “we have reviewed the findings of their [USDA veterinarians] inspections in 2017, 2018, and 2019
and believe they are accurate.”
Fortunately, the Missouri Department of Agriculture and Attorney General Schmitt are not relying on USDA to close down puppy mills in Missouri.
Please contact Attorney General Eric Schmitt and thank him for taking action against cruel puppy mills.
