It Is typical of perhaps one of every five operations, fedeval veterinarians estimate. The mills, along with the pet shops that do most of their merchandising, are to disturb many dog lovers, par- ticularly those who have bought (lie end product. As commer- cial dog breeding has grown, so too has its problems. Humane societies report num- erous cases of crowding and 1 filib. "Guaranteed" pocddlc pup- pies sometimes mature into part-Schnauzers. Registration papers often are carelessly or purposely mishan- dled. Flimsy vegetable crates com- monly are used as shipping con- tainers. Sales contracls are ignored frequently when puppies fall ill a few hours afler being sold- Of course, there arc Ihous- ands of humane and ethical breeders and pet shop opera- tors. Some have gone so far as to air-condition their kennels. Others are so sophisticated they project puppy turnover wilh computers. "We shouldn't be condemned altogether for what a few mar- ginal opo-ators said Al Rosenthal, president of the Uni- ted Pet Dealers Association, the leading commercial breeders' organ! zallon. Nevertheless, the Inhumane and unethical operators have become so numerous lhat steps are being taken to police them. In Detroit, an orgti uation called Ihe American Dog Own- ers Association was formed two years ago specifically to keep an eye on commercial breed- ers. Duncan Wright, Ihe associa- tion's president, travels about the country inspecting puppy mills and pel shops. He says: "The quality of dogs in Amer- ica is endangered by the em- phasis on quanlity, not to men- lion Ihe cruelty, hokum and cynicism lhat goes aloiig with mass production." Earlier in the month, he help- ed law officers in Berkeley County, VA., shut clown a puppy mill that was producing dogs for a pet shop chain called "The St. Bernard Chalet." When Wright and the lav? officers ar- rived at the mill, they found it abandoned, with more than a hundred dogs cooped up In muddy, vermin infested ruins and in a basement, Scatter- ed about were half a dozen dead puppies. The operation was closed down, and the chain ilself has since gone out of business. Allegations of cruelty and sloppy breeding havo begun lo weary (he American Kennel Club, which keeps Irack of the pedigrees of most of the pure- bred clogs in Amecica and sup erviscs many of Use shows in which they are displayed. Assfn-ting lhat crowding and filth arc "the rule instead of the exception" in many cora- mercicl breeding operations, Warren French, a club investi- gator, says: "The big problem we face is that there is no way we can check up on every one of the million or more puppies whose we process every year. About all we can do is spot check and act when we get a complaint." This position does not satisfy Dr. David Bromwell, head o( the canine inspection section of the Illinois Bureau of Animal Health. He fired otf a letter lo the kennel club's mam office in New York, saying: "Wo feel the registry Is blind to the facls as they exist. You and various publications con- demn puppy mills but at DM same time condone them and let them flourish by registering all of their animals at face value with no research whatso- ever into their ethical back- ground as producers." The club immediately sent one of its vice presidents ta confer with Bromwell. 73 Plymouth Satellite Listen closely to all you hear from Ply mouth. We've found new ways to keep it quiet For 1973, Plymouth is quieter than ever before.
