Puppy Mill back in Business: Ask the Quebec Government to Act

OHS supporters have been flooding us with information about the notorious Paws-R-Us puppy mill operators once again selling dogs on-line.  

We were outraged to learn last spring that the operators of the horrendous facility that the OHS helped to shut down would be banned from breeding for only two years.  Now, after less than a year, they appear to be back at callously exploiting dogs for profit.

The Shawville operation is well outside OHS jurisdiction, but we assisted in the rescue and re-homing last year and are very concerned about the fate of the mill's current victims. 

The OHS contacted Quebec authorities at ANIMA-Quebec  who have given us a tepid response.   Now OHS Executive Director Bruce Roney has written a strong letter to François Gendron, the Deputy Premier and Quebec Minister responsible, asking him to take immediate action. You can read the letter on our website.

Stand up for these new victims by adding your appeal to the Minister to act.  Minister Gendron can be contacted by email, mail, fax or telephone.  The Minister’s contact information is:
François Gendron
