|For those who may not be aware of it, the American Kennel Club (the “AKC”) has entered into a contract with Petland to facilitate the AKC registration of the puppies Petland sells. Petland, unlike Petco or PETsMART, sells puppies that it obtains from The Hunte Corporation, a licensed distributor of pure-bred puppies to pet stores. The Hunte Corporation obtains puppies from a wide array of places, many of which are considered “high volume breeders” – the new “buzz phrase” for puppy mill.
If you feel as we do that establishing a business relationship with a company that obtains puppies from a “high volume breeder” is detrimental to all dog breeds and promotes puppy mills, please join us in signing a petition and letting the AKC know your position.
Following is the link for the on-line petition:
Thanks for taking the time to address this very important issue.
