  • Before dropping his USDA license, this MO commercial breeder accumulated multiple repeat violations, including dogs without food and water, injured dogs who were not being treated by a vet, sanitation issues, and serious care issues. He still holds a state kennel license. HSUS

The HSUS released “Missouri’s Dirty Dozen,” a report on some of the most deplorable puppy mills in Missouri. These puppy mills were singled out for repeatedly depriving dogs of the basics of humane care like food, shelter, and basic veterinary care.

Violations included sick or dying puppies who had not been treated by a veterinarian; dogs found shivering in temperatures as low as 9 degrees; and dogs so emaciated that their bones were visible through their skin.
