The HSUS is not a law firm, law enforcement or government agency. We attempt to respond to every complaint as soon as possible with tips on how best to organize and handle your case. In the meantime, please check to see if your state has a puppy lemon law. You may also want to review these state laws for more information about how puppy sellers are regulated in your state. 

Please tell us about yourself.

You may remain anonymous if you wish and we will attempt to bring details to the correct authorities, but please know that many agencies are unlikely to act on anonymous tips. In addition, we would like to be able to reach out to you with follow-up questions, even if you choose not to have your name shared with groups or agencies outside of the Humane Society of the United States.
