Is someone off their medication "ihatechristyfore"? I get your point, but you are just as hateful as the people you are condemning. I think these breeders have serious problems also and WV finally stepped into this century on one thing. Invoking the wrath of God makes your argument sound a bit crazy. Stick to the facts. Have you ever eaten meat? The people that kill animals for meat would suffer the same fate based on your agrument. Since you are the one that created the demand for meat, you will suffer the same fate! Glass houses.

@ihatechristyfore...I agree with you 100%.

I despise anyone who abuses animals. I am glad someone is finally doing something about these mills.

I also despise people who won't have their pets fixed, and just let them have one litter after another. (I guess these "people" need their money for beer and cigarettes.)

I love my cats and my Chihuahua, and would not harm them in anyway, nor would I harm any other animal.

I surely do hate, loathe, and despise animal abusers.

I completely agree but please let it be known that the 'Whispering Oaks' breeders were shut down and left the area years ago. The property is now owned by an animal loving and caring family that has no ties to any kind of puppy mills in any way. Sometimes the vitriolic rhetoric can have adverse unintentional consequences on completely innocent people.

Thank God; it is about time. These people who operate dog and cat mills are a scourge to society. Shelters are overwhelmed and it has to stop now. Our county's kennel cannot keep up with all the drop offs and rescues due to these ignorant and evil people. They need to be punished by huge fines and mandatory time spent in animal shelters. These poor animals have no life inside a wire cage, or living in conditions of filth and disease. ALL BREEDERS should have orders for the animals they are producing BEFORE they churn out dogs and cats. This includes grayhounds as well, who are used and then discarded. People are awful, and they will have to answer someday when they stand before God and answer for the suffering they have inflicted on His creatures.
