ACTION ALERT: Request Investigation of Oakland County Animal Control

From: Pam
Sent on: Friday, June 6, 2014 11:44 AM

Meetup Members,

Puppy Mill Awareness is working hard to ensure animals confined in large-scale breeding operations are protected and laws are enforced. We fear the laws are not properly being enforced in Oakland County who’s animal control director was quoted as saying “My goal is to make the animal safe…not shut people down”.

Therefore, we are continuing our efforts to end the chronic neglect at the Chien di’Or golden retriever kennel in Farmington Hills and we need OAKLAND COUNTY RESIDENTS to take action. Please forward this Action Alert to your contacts in Oakland County.

Call To Action:

1. Send an email the following elected Oakland County officials and persuade them to act. Ask for a formal investigation of Oakland County Animals Control’s handling of the Chien d'Or Golden Retriever kennel in Farmington Hills last summer. Some key questions we want answers too include 1)Why were the animals not removed immediately during the August 2013 inspection? “Kennel is in such abominable condition that the animals cannot be kept clean or in general good health. Flea/insect infestation. This kennel is not structurally sound and poses a health concern for the animals being kept in the facility. 2) Why were cruelty charges not filed? 3) How could this kennel pass ALL SATISFACTORY during the routine 2013 spring inspection? 4) Why does the August 2013 inspection reports not include more information about the conditions of the dogs? 5) Why was a veterinarian not onsite for the 8/15/13 inspection or the 9/10/13 follow-up inspection? 6) Why was the kennel not cited for being over the kennel limit of (50) dogs? The August 2013 inspection reported (57) adult golden retrievers were found on the property.

2. Find your County Commissioner: Ask your Commissioner to personally take action. Oakland County residents care about pets and dogs confined in large-scale kennels. We don’t want the department to “monitor” conditions, we want animals to be protected! Click here to find your commissioner.

3. Attend the next County Commissioners Meeting Wednesday, June 11th at 7 PM. We will post more instructions for your participation on the Meetup and Facebook Events. (Board of Commissioners Auditorium, 1200 North Telegraph Road County Service Center, Building 12 East, Pontiac, Mich)

4. Attend the next Zoning Hearing on Thursday, June 19th at 3 PM, at the 47th District Court in Farmington Hills. The owner of the kennel will be facing the judge related to basement kennel housing over 30 adult dogs last summer. Check the calendar as hearings are often rescheduled.
