Since our Puppy Mill Awareness Day protest at Westland Dog Food Co, we have been continuing to collect more information on their puppy suppliers and plan to return for a sustained boycott beginning in January.
For now, I wanted to share with you some of our findings. Please pass this along to others as pictures are an effective way to spread the word.
Of the thirteen Westland Dog Food Supply breeders I investigated this summer, I discovered that three have Open Investigative Enforcement Services Cases in Arkansas, Missouri and Kansas.
We are withholding records that are part of an Open Investigative Enforcement
Services (IES) cases, AR00016 (Wylie, Rhonda & Duane Slagley, Happy Acres
Kennel), KS09028 (Nancy Schulz), and M011036 (Robin Sheets), under FOIA
Exemption 7(A), 5 U.S.C. § 552(b)(7)(A). This exemption protects from disclosure
records compiled for law enforcement purposes, the release of which could reasonably
be expected to interfere with enforcement activities.
The USDA sent me these photos from Bob and Dee Ann Cleveringa (B&D Kennel) in Iowa. This kennel has shipped puppies each year to Westland Dog Food Supply since 2009.
