Puppy Mills = Puppy Cruelty

by Canadian Federation of Humane Societies
May 13, 2013

What's next for Canadian puppy mills?

In 2013 the CFHS will strive to enhance the Criminal Code of Canada (CCC) to shut down Canadian puppy mills.  The CFHS will create a ‘snapshot’ report on the Canadian puppy mill industry to help Canadians (public and politicians) better understand the scope and scale of this deplorable problem. The CFHS Puppy Mill Report will require research quantifying the number of puppy mills dogs that are being sold on-line, identifying where there are bans on the selling of dogs in pet stores, an overview of existing online restrictions and a collection of case studies on what is currently being done to combat puppy mills.  

We will use the CFHS Puppy Mill Report to lobby politicians and advocate for the modernization of the current animal cruelty provisions of the CCC so that enforcement officers have the laws they need to convict puppy mill operators of cruelty and put them out of business for good. Additionally, this legislative work will also increase law enforcement’s ability to charge people with dog fighting-related activities.
