The Fraternal Order of Police has announced its support for a reward program established by The Humane Society of the United States to help combat illegal animal cruelty at puppy mills...Hopefully our reward will be extra incentive for people with information about cruel conditions at a puppy mill to speak up and call our tip line. South Carolina puppy mill (http://www.humanesociety.org/news/press_releases/2012/09/sc_edgefield_puppy_mill_rescue_091112.html) after a citizen’s tip led investigators to the property. Local law enforcement served a search and seizure warrant on the property on Sept. 11 and found dogs of various breeds suffering from eye infections, skin irritations, dental problems and lack of socialization. The nursing mothers and their puppies were being kept in filthy rabbit hutches, while some of the larger breeders were in pens or running loose on the property...Often the only legal protections the dogs have are state cruelty laws that require minimum standards of care...See our work for animals on your Apple or Android device by searching for our “HumaneTV” app.
