Tell the USDA to Stop Hiding Puppy Mill Abuse: Sign the Petition

Dogs continue to suffer in puppy mills across the country. Despite public outcry, our ability to monitor these cruel breeding facilities took a big hit from the government. In February 2017, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) removed information about thousands of commercial dog breeders regulated by the Animal Welfare Act from its website. These reports used to be available to anyone with internet access—and suddenly, they were gone.

Several months later, the USDA revealed a revised database. Unfortunately, all of the critical information, including breeder names, addresses, and federal license numbers is still missing. This information is vital in our efforts to monitor puppy mills and to help the animals who languish in them year after year.

Why is the USDA protecting these cruel industries, unless they genuinely have something to hide? Please sign our petition demanding USDA give back full access to this life-saving information.
