The Problem:
Puppy mills overbreed,
leading to high rates
of euthanasia.

Green, Leah and Floy

The weather at the time of the investigation was 82 degrees Fahrenheit and cloudy.


There were approximately 200 dogs on the premises at the time of investigation.

Building 1
In the outdoor kennels, adult dogs were in pens with enclosed wooden dog houses for shelter that were not impervious to moisture (Sec. 3.4 Outdoor housing facilities (c) Construction).

Building 2
In the whelping room, no outdoor access was provided. This is in violation of the new revisions to the Missouri Canine Cruelty Prevention Act. These revisions require unfettered outdoor access for all dogs. One Shih Tzu had a bad infection and mucus discharge coming from its right eye. This appeared untreated and had clearly been a health concern for an unknown amount of time. (Sec. 2.40 Attending veterinarian and adequate veterinary care).

Fecal accumulation appeared to have been there for more than 24 hours (Sec. 3.11 Cleaning, sanitization, housekeeping and pest control (a) Cleaning of primary enclosures).
