Summary: CAPS has been gathering consumer complaints for the puppy mill of Joyce Stoltzfus in Peach Bottom, PA (Lancaster County) for many years. We have investigated the facility. Puppy Love Kennel (renamed CC Pets) was the focus of stories CAPS generated with “20/20,” and The Philadelphia Inquirer. CAPS gathered over a hundred consumer complaints, which resulted in the first settlement with the Office of the Attorney General. Stoltzfus was fined $35,000. She continued to violate the laws and CAPS continued to receive complaints. The Attorney General reached another settlement, this time with a fine of $75,000.
