Sherry. I absolutely agree with your statement about this place, but looks aren’t everything. I have purchased a puppy from this breeder and He is the most gentle and best dog I have ever had. They really know what they’re doing when they breed their dogs.

I drive past this house everyday and am disgusted by the deplorable conditions these dogs are kept. They are outside year round no shelter from rain, snow how do kathy and husband sleep at night? These poor dogs recieve no heat and comfort. Id at least feel better if they had a roof over there so called “cages”. you make money off of these dogs why not fix up there living quarters to proper temperature control dog houses that block from wind, heat , snow, rain.

First off, Kathys dogs have shelter. Doyou not see the little white barrels? And that is not her husband. There pens are kept up to standard to laws, start at the laws if you do not like it. She is a wonderfull person. The dog have automatic waters and are fed daily multiple times.

This person does NOT care about her dogs! Right now there are PUPPIES outside freezing to death because her “little white barrels” are NOT adequate shelter. There are probably over 100 dogs and puppies “living” together in this shithole. “Minny Cruella” indeed! She needs to be shut down and charged with animal cruelty!!!

Right now there are puppies as young as 8 weeks old out in the frigid weather at this so called breeder’s house. The photos are all over facebook and the authorities are being contacted. This is a puppy mill and it is horrific that these dogs have no warmth from the frigid cold. We are getting a snowstorm and the temperatures will be near zero. How is a tiny puppy supposed to live in that weather. I hope she gets shut down and banned from breeding. What is wrong with the neighbors and authorities up there to allow this to go on. Puppy mills should be illegal. A good breeder has one or two good dogs and they breed only once a year. This is a puppy factory and dogs do not belong outside in the winter. It is cruel. There is no bedding or hay in the little white plastic covers. This is verified by eyewitnesses TODAY. I hope they are arrested for this. Disgusting.

Anyone who thinks plastic barrels are appropriate living conditions in this cold climate should not have dogs. Period!

I find it extremely suspicious that Eric Bellows has lived near these scumbags for years and is JUST now hearing dogs barking? I want these dogs out of their current situation but For everyone putting trust, faith, and most importantly MONEY, into Eric’s hands, you are doing no favor to these dogs. These dogs will be pulled by Eric, most likely bred, and then they will start disappearing without explanation. Trust that the only thing that Eric sees in this situation is dollar signs.

#19 
Written By Donttrustericb on January 1st, 2014 @ 2:32 pm

WOW SERIOUSLY?!!!! accusing ERIC of all people of seeing dollar signs????!!! How ignorant are YOU?! The man that helps run this MILL is the one that is only seeing dollar signs!!! YOU must be a relative or something (and I do MEAN “something”) how anyone can defend leaving poor defenseless animals out in sub zero weather with only a PLASTIC barrel between them and the cold is absolutely INSANE! We are working with RESCUES right now to save these poor dogs….WHERE are you getting the MONEY from???? I’d like proof of you claims about Eric, we have plenty of PROOF of the conditions that the dogs are in.

#20 
Written By Karen on January 1st, 2014 @ 2:41 pm

BTW…a true breeder does not have barrels for shelters, especially for puppies. A true breeder does not leave their dogs outside in the freezing cold either. They keep their breeding mothers/fathers inside and they are treated like family….these people are sick…and if you think that this is ok then you are sick as well…I do not care how great their dogs are or if they are nice people…they are NOT a true breeder and nor should these pups be living like this!!!!!!!!!!!! This is cruel!!

#21 
Written By Missy on January 1st, 2014 @ 2:44 pm

Read my comment carefully Karen. Nobody is defending the breeders. But the fact of the matter is Eric himself is a breeder and has 50+ dogs on his property. He lives off donations, does not do home visits for adoptions, and his dogs are not up to date on medical when they are adopted. These are all FACTS & there is plenty of proof. The problem is that you and the rest of his FB army choose to bury your heads in the sand instead of looking at the reality of the situation. It has been only 1 day and instead of going through proper channels to have ALL of these dogs removed (if you have ever been part of shutting down a puppy mill you would know that it does not happen over night) he is asking for donations so he can buy the dogs….from a scumbag breeder. It’s instant gratification, it’s lazy, and it does NOTHING to solve the problem.

I’m not going to argue over facts and clearly the intelligence in this group is lacking. Good luck to you all and I pray that these dogs don’t end up in a worse situation because of Eric’s lack of patience and intelligence on how to do things the proper way so that ALL dogs are safe, not just the ones that are being bought. And if I were all of you, I would request to see proof of vaccinations and spay/neuters after these dogs enter Erics care.

In our city we just passed an ordinance to sell only rescue animals at pet shops. Since the conditions that breeders such as this one has for the animals is hurtful to the animals, I am celebrating our new law. Why doesn’t your state start taking ownership for the profit making business of puppy mills? Shame on you.

8 week old puppies being zapped at the electric fence when they saw Eric and the gang. Just sickening that they are outside in this weather to freeze. Wish NY had the same law as CT where it would be ILLEGAL to leave dogs outside in temperatures such as these. Please NY get with it! I will do all I can to spread the word about this breeder, I have seen the pictures and they are NOT pretty. This story makes me SICK and an FYI- I have yet to see one of Eric’s dogs bred with all he shares with us. unreal. THESE DOGS NEED OUT AND SOON!

This person should be shut down. No one with common sense, no reputable person, breeds litters and keeps them in substandard conditions. Seems like the almighty $$ is the only criteria here. This person’s reasons for breeding are questionable, the photos themselves are condemning. They need to be prosecuted, fined for cruelty, neglect and abuse. And as a so-called breeder, they need to be boycotted.

The real question is why can’t people stop breeding animals and get real jobs?? Why contribute to the serious problem of so many strays being euthanized or living their existence in kennels?? Obviously a breeder is not a wonderfully caring person if they are oblivious to their deeds..neither is the people who buy them

Written By Brenda on January 1st, 2014 @ 10:40 pm

I think the lack of response by authorities may be due to the holiday. I would hope that by tomorrow, when they are all back at work, and read all your emails and hear the voicemails left by countless facebook people, that SOMEBODY, like the Humane Society, ASPCA, news media, newspapers, etc. WILL do something. The storm coming is supposed to dump 12-18″ of snow across NY state and there are already blizzard warnings for the areas closer to the coast. There is no way these dogs will survive – puppies especially – if 18″ of snow cover the area. Their makeshift dog shelters will be buried. Yes it seems people have known about this for a long time but it’s just like everywhere else. People don’t want to get involved and they just turn away. This is a puppy mill – a breeding factory to sell puppies to pet stores,etc. just like the Amish ones we have in PA. They should be outlawed. But I understand this woman has her kennel’s capacity “grandfathered” in after new laws were passed and therefore the cops won’t do anything. But “adequate shelter” should not mean that any dog should live in zero degree weather in snow and ice with no heat or warm bedding. This, is outright cruelty and should be prosecuted to the fullest. A true breeder owns a few good dogs and breeds once a year maybe and keeps a waiting list. They don’t have an acre of dogs in wired pens like this. Not to mention these are SMALL dogs – shelties, shih tzus, etc. Not snow dogs like huskies. Let the owners sleep in the barrels and put the dogs in the house.

To anyone who thinks that it’s ok for these dogs to sleep in white barrels in this weather, please come to my house and I’ll set up white barrels in my backyard for you to sleep in. But no dogs allowed, they sleep in the house. Folks who disagree with the owners of this puppy mill we need to post, repost and repost some more every day to as many people as possible. Please share this info on any and all social media sites. We can put her out of business and fast.

here is a Breeder in Sprakers, New York [Montgomery County] keeping dogs & puppies outside in the frigid cold. They have NO hay, NO bedding, some have ICE COLD Plastic Barrels, chained to the barrels, all penned within electric fencing.

Puppies getting zapped by the elec. fence. Over 100 dogs there, many are small [Chihuahuas & similar] some young puppies out there in the cold as young as 8 WEEKS old!

This is the Breeder location, and contact information:

NOTE: As of today, I was told she took her site down, and changed her email address.

This person also runs another location/Breeding Operation in Canada. Here in the Northeast we are into a bitter COLD week, Zero & Sub Zero temps. By Friday night we are expected to be at -13, that’s MINUS 13 DEGREES.

Some of these dogs/puppies are NOT going to make it! They will NOT survive these cold temps.

All Media/News Stations have been notified by many, many people. All Police Depts/Law Enforcement also are aware. Police were there last night, they are not going to do ANYTHING!

People are continuing to contact Police, Vets, News Media, News Papers, SPCA’s, Shelters, Rescues, the County DA, The Mayor, etc.

PLEASE make calls & keep making calls! So Important! Because the Police will not do anything and these helpless animals are not being seized [as of yet] Eric is taking desperate means to try and save as many as he can by ‘buying’ some of them, mainly young puppies & seniors mostly at risk of death by freezing. He needs HELP NOW, TODAY. He is asking for donations, any amount works, it all adds up!

These innocent animals do NOT deserve to live like this, they do NOT deserve to die!

What we will never know is how many of their so-called-well-kept-puppies HAVE ALREADY DIED…. check their trashcans, I guess. To every person who is defending the deplorable conditions of these PUPPIES and dogs – please, spend a night in a plastic barrel in sub zero temps – and THEN let us all know how comfy you were. The conditions are repulsive. These are backyard puppy millers, not compassionate, responsible, scrupulous breeders. The difference (other than the cruel conditions) between them and legitimate breeders with morals, is this: “Real” breeders have buyers lined up for their puppies BEFORE the breeding takes place, they ALWAYS take back any pup that doesn’t work out – no questions asked, parents are hip scored, thoroughly vetted, kept INDOORS, well trained with temperament testing that is documented…. as well… REAL breeders are involved in breed rescue… helping to pick up the mess that back yard puppy mill breeders like FLAT CREEK leave behind. It’s time to STOP people like this for good, and demand new laws and regulations from our representatives and senators….. and make THIS illegal.

any one that defends the condition of this OUTSIDE breeding facility in extreme weather of -14 degrees w/windchill -35 and you feel theses barrels or so called shelters are adequate for this extreme weather should actually read this NY Animal Cruelty Statue
Here is the NY Law-
26 Ag & Markets 353-b.

§ 353-b. Appropriate shelter for dogs left outdoors. 1. For purposes
of this section:
(a) “Physical condition” shall include any special medical needs of a
dog due to disease, illness, injury, age or breed about which the owner
or person with custody or control of the dog should reasonably be aware.
(b) “Inclement weather” shall mean weather conditions that are likely
to adversely affect the health or safety of the dog, including but not
limited to rain, sleet, ice, snow, wind, or extreme heat and cold.
(c) “Dogs that are left outdoors” shall mean dogs that are outdoors in
inclement weather without ready access to, or the ability to enter, a
house, apartment building, office building, or any other permanent
structure that complies with the standards enumerated in paragraph (b)
of subdivision three of this section.
2. (a) Any person who owns or has custody or control of a dog that is
left outdoors shall provide it with shelter appropriate to its breed,
physical condition and the climate. Any person who knowingly violates
the provisions of this section shall be guilty of a violation,
punishable by a fine of not less than fifty dollars nor more than one
hundred dollars for a first offense, and a fine of not less than one
hundred dollars nor more than two hundred fifty dollars for a second and
subsequent offenses. Beginning seventy-two hours after a charge of
violating this section, each day that a defendant fails to correct the
deficiencies in the dog shelter for a dog that he or she owns or that is
in his or her custody or control and that is left outdoors, so as to
bring it into compliance with the provisions of this section shall
constitute a separate offense.
(b) The court may, in its discretion, reduce the amount of any fine
imposed for a violation of this section by the amount which the
defendant proves he or she has spent providing a dog shelter or
repairing an existing dog shelter so that it complies with the
requirements of this section. Nothing in this paragraph shall prevent
the seizure of a dog for a violation of this section pursuant to the
authority granted in this article.
3. Minimum standards for determining whether shelter is appropriate to
a dog’s breed, physical condition and the climate shall include:
(a) For dogs that are restrained in any manner outdoors, shade by
natural or artificial means to protect the dog from direct sunlight at
all times when exposure to sunlight is likely to threaten the health of
the dog.
(b) For all dogs that are left outdoors in inclement weather, a
housing facility, which must: (1) have a waterproof roof; (2) be
structurally sound with insulation appropriate to local climatic
conditions and sufficient to protect the dog from inclement weather; (3)
be constructed to allow each dog adequate freedom of movement to make
normal postural adjustments, including the ability to stand up, turn
around and lie down with its limbs outstretched; and (4) allow for

So here we go again. Eric calls his FB army to action with regard to a situation that is happening in his back yard and has been for years. All of a sudden, this army from where the heck ever believes every word this man says with no proof besides the photos he has chosen to post. Yeah, I know. The conditions are not what I approve of but coming from another breeder (Eric) it is a bit of a joke. Yes, Eric breeds Pits. Yes, I have copies of his advertisements to sell these pups. Yes, he bought dogs from BDAK (Blue Dragon Alaska) as his breeding stock. Yes, I have proof of the purchase. Yes, dogs have gone missing from his “sanctuary”. Yes, I have copies of threatening emails from him to rescue organizations asking where the dogs were. Yes, I have copies of checks (totaling thousands of dollars) sent to him for the care of these animals. But, unfortunately, none of this will matter to many of his Facebook fans. He is your saint, your hero. Feel free to worship whomever you choose. But, beware of false idols for certainly Eric is one.

These people are totally disgusting, they are bums, try getting a job and stop exploiting animals, using them for profit, not caring one bit for any of them.. neglect them, abuse them so their suffering can pay your bills while you sit back in your warm trash of a house knowing they are out there freezing. How many have already died from freezing? We are watching you and we will not stop! How do you sleep at night hearing all those poor babies crying and yelping for help?

How can anyone look at these conditions these dogs and puppies are enduring and consider them humane or even adequate for that matter? These are NOT working dogs, they are JUST used for breeding and lining the pockets of the owner, while millions of animals die in shelters all across the U.S. due to pet overpopulation. This is NOT humane treatment of companion animals and I am outraged that no one in the state of NY that can help these babies is doing anything to end their suffering!!!!

I know it costs me a few hundred bucks a year for an annual checkup on one dog, and god forbid she get hurt or sick…These people should be forced to live the way the are making these poor dogs live..Without a doubt, this place needs to be shut down…Not to mention, there are enough homeless dogs in our area, we dont need to add to it, if someone wants a dog, please go to the animal shelter, there are good purebred dogs to be found there, dont go to places like this and support this cruelty

Eric is not the only person who has provided proof of this disgusting place. Lastly, Eric is not the only person “rallying” troops or gathering an army. Perhaps you’re secretly his biggest fan, which is the cause for you to focus solely on him? Regardless, there are at least a dozen others who have driven by the Flat Creek Puppy Production and Canine Neglect Facility and have seen this disgust for themselves. THOSE are the people that I’ve been following. THEIR testimonies, THEIR pictures were enough to convince me. As soon as this storm passes, I will drive to Sprakers and become one more person who can say that yes, this hell hole is indeed just that, a freezing hell hole for dogs.

He has never been a breeder hospital career has been rescuing dogs like at
this puppy mill. This is flat out cruelty & neglect! And the police up there make me even more sick saying everything there is fine and well cared for.
Well the photos tell another story doesn’t it? When I woke up this morning and found out there are still dogs trapped there I cried like a baby.

As an animal advocate I can only speak to the fact that what may have begun as a love to be around dogs by the breeder, has turned into a living hell for the dozens of dogs and puppies which may all be dead by tomorrow. The temps are going to freeze these babies. The breeder must do the right thing…..surrender any dogs not able to fit inside the small house to volunteers. If not, and any deaths occur….I can only say that the enormous number of animal rights activists will be able to legally shut this hell-hole down and force charges of animal cruelty toward this worthless breeder!

N.Y. AGM. LAW § 353-b : NY Code – Section 353-B: Appropriate shelter for dogs left outdoors

1. For purposes of this section: (a) “Physical condition” shall include any special medical needs of a dog due to disease, illness, injury, age or breed about which the owner or person with custody or control of the dog should reasonably be aware. (b) “Inclement weather” shall mean weather conditions that are likely to adversely affect the health or safety of the dog, including but not limited to rain, sleet, ice, snow, wind, or extreme heat and cold. (c) “Dogs that are left outdoors” shall mean dogs that are outdoors in inclement weather without ready access to, or the ability to enter, a house, apartment building, office building, or any other permanent structure that complies with the standards enumerated in paragraph (b) of subdivision three of this section. 2. (a) Any person who owns or has custody or control of a dog that is left outdoors shall provide it with shelter appropriate to its breed, physical condition and the climate. Any person who knowingly violates the provisions of this section shall be guilty of a violation, punishable by a fine of not less than fifty dollars nor more than one hundred dollars for a first offense, and a fine of not less than one hundred dollars nor more than two hundred fifty dollars for a second and subsequent offenses. Beginning seventy-two hours after a charge of violating this section, each day that a defendant fails to correct the deficiencies in the dog shelter for a dog that he or she owns or that is in his or her custody or control and that is left outdoors, so as to bring it into compliance with the provisions of this section shall constitute a separate offense. (b) The court may, in its discretion, reduce the amount of any fine imposed for a violation of this section by the amount which the defendant proves he or she has spent providing a dog shelter or repairing an existing dog shelter so that it complies with the requirements of this section. Nothing in this paragraph shall prevent the seizure of a dog for a violation of this section pursuant to the authority granted in this article. 3. Minimum standards for determining whether shelter is appropriate to a dog’s breed, physical condition and the climate shall include: (a) For dogs that are restrained in any manner outdoors, shade by natural or artificial means to protect the dog from direct sunlight at all times when exposure to sunlight is likely to threaten the health of the dog. (b) For all dogs that are left outdoors in inclement weather, a housing facility, which must: (1) have a waterproof roof; (2) be structurally sound with insulation appropriate to local climatic conditions and sufficient to protect the dog from inclement weather; (3) be constructed to allow each dog adequate freedom of movement to make normal postural adjustments, including the ability to stand up, turn around and lie down with its limbs outstretched; and (4) allow for effective removal of excretions, other waste material; dirt and trash. The housing facility and the area immediately surrounding it shall be regularly cleaned to maintain a healthy and sanitary environment and to minimize health hazards. 4. Inadequate shelter may be indicated by the appearance of the housing facility itself, including but not limited to, size, structural soundness, evidence of crowding within the housing facility, healthful environment in the area immediately surrounding such facility, or by the appearance or physical condition of the dog. 5. Upon a finding of any violation of this section, any dog or dogs seized pursuant to the provisions of this article that have not been voluntarily surrendered by the owner or custodian or forfeited pursuant to court order shall be returned to the owner or custodian only upon proof that appropriate shelter as required by this section is being provided

Anyone who looks at the photos of the strictly outdoor living conditions for these dogs can see it is a puppy mill, the dogs are living in deplorable conditions with no protection from the elements. Outdoor kennels may be acceptable in warmer climates, however a NY winter is not that. Tiny puppies and elderly dogs forced to live out in the freezing elements in barrels? Has she never heard of insulated dog houses? Her house looks like a dump, so no surprise she breeds dogs in a dump as well. I am shocked that anyone would be so ignorant to call the breeder a kind person, anyone who speaks well of her here is truly an ignorant fool, lacking education and utterly devoid of common sense.

This is sickening. No animal should have to live under these conditions. And aren’t there laws that govern how MANY pets that can be on one private property? I have seen numerous times where cats and dogs have been removed from owners simply because they had too many and couldn’t care for them. Looking at these dogs, there is no way they are annually vet checked and vaccinated, much less cared for if ill. I spend hundreds of dollars a year on my 3 animals just to keep them healthy. Not to mention the cost of good quality food. By the looks of this place , I wonder how much and what they are being fed. The grounds look like a fenced in shack with crates in the yard! NOTHING like a true breeders grounds would look like. WAKE UP AUTHORITIES, this is not rocket science here! Something CAN BE DONE! I have contacted many and will continue, even if I have to travel the 2 hrs. to get there. What a disgrace.

Your right BCs are working dogs but they are NOT like huskies. Anyone that knows anything about dogs knows there is a huge difference. They are intelligent workaholics who were bred to herd. They were designed to work long hours herding sheep. They do not have the same coat or body build as a husky that were born to live in cold temps. If even a 1/3 of what is being said about this breed is true than they are not good breeders.
Having this many dogs of this breed (who we know do not as a rule make the best pet in a home that is looking for a couch potato)

no sheep farmer EVER would buy his dog(s) from that place, or a place like this. Nor would anyone else needing a working dog. People who need a working dog VALUE their dogs.
And as HAVENBOUNCE said, Border Collies are not meant to live outdoors in such conditions. They are not made for winter, but for herding in the spring and summer.
Those are bred to be sold as pets. And I doubt that dog lovers would go there, see the conditions and buy a puppy from them. My guess, they sell on the street, markets, to shops, via the classifieds or online. I can’t imagine anyone looking for a pet buying there when aware of the conditions.

This place is running for 30 years – and they didn’t care enough about the dogs to improve their conditions in those 30 years. They won’t start now. Being not illegal does not mean being right. This clearly is not.

The aholes can’t even go outside to clean off the snow! And not all the barrels have straw.

And yes Eric did approach the owners about buying some of the dogs – he wanted to get some of the ones in bad shape out of there ASAP. And his rescue is a 501c3 – trust me the govt. spends more time regulating 501c3 charities than they do puppy mills!

You are a disgrace to loving compassionate breeders of these beautiful dogs! Buyer Beware…. There is much more to the allegations of this breeder. Cruella, Get A Job!

A breeder treats his/her dogs like family and doesn’t just barely meet the requirements of a woefully inadequate set of ag laws. Dogs are family pets, companion animals, domesticated to be kept in the same shelter as their human “pack”. You do not belong in this business. SHAME ON YOU.

If you want to help and are in the area and most of all, are concerned for the dogs, go and drop off at the edge of the property some food, hay, straw, anything to keep the dogs warm. Just drop it and leave. No nasty notes or comments..if you feel compelled to say anything ..just that it is a belated holiday present for the dogs and that you are concerned about them. These people are under seige and this kind of outrage makes them more isolated and more difficult to negotiate with. We will see who the true dogs lover posting here are.

Omg, I just saw a comment by someone who bought one of their dogs!!!
Let me fill you in:
Any dog you get from anywhere can and will most likely turn out to be an awesome dog if you put in the time and love they deserve!!!
This is not a credit to the breeding facility, but a credit to the canine species!!!!
HOWEVER, when you buy a dog from a place like this you are feeding an industry that is equal to human trafficking!
NO DECENT BREEDER HAS BLUE PLASTIC BARRELS IN THEIR YARD!!!
I have learned a LOT about Border Collies since adopting one and one of the first red flags about this place is the merles!!! Too much white which is called ‘lethal white’!!! This means a lot of the pups are deaf, blind or both!!!! When a buyer finds out they can’t train their ‘super smart Border Collie’ they may not realize HE CAN’T HEAR THEM…. and he goes to a shelter…. if he’s lucky.
When the breeder notices they are deaf/blind… what do you think they do with them????
This place is a disgrace and if anyone wants to pay for a great dog, they should contact Rescues!!!! With just a little patience you can find the perfect dog there!!! Not only will they support you while your new dog is adjusting, they will take them back if it doesn’t work out!!!!
YES, they will screen you….. which is what a good breeder does, too!!! Placing the right dog in the right home…. equals happy dog, happy family!
DO NOT BUY A DOG FROM THIS HELL HOLE!!!!! If you do, you are just as guilty for the suffering!!! Contact the local Rescues and they will have some of their dogs eventually :(

Hello, I was looking to purchase a BC. I am planning on training it in agility and show him. I came across some pictures of your the dogs on your land. I am not sure if I want a puppy or adult. One of the dogs that really struck me or caught my interest was a black & white adult, it appears he’s frozen in the snow or the very least freezing while he looks to be yelping and not moving. Now the puppy I was interested in… Well he appears to not be on your property anymore, I heard you wheeled him and another away in a wheelbarrow. Guess I can’t buy him!!
Now those blue barrels that you have for shelter in this really freezing weather, should I purchase one of those ? I never in my life would have guessed plastic would be good at insulating. WAIT… it’s NOT, but you are a POS breeder and know this due to the fact those animals died and your dogs being so unhappy and blustery cold!
While your in your trailer and your phone is off the hook, take a minute to evaluate your shitty life, your crappy morals, and your ability to be so cruel to innocent animals.

Our shelters are full of unwanted pets, and we spend hundreds of thousands of dollars on capturing, housing, and destroying these unwanted pets……why……so some breeder can make money? The conditions these animals live in is deplorable. I live on a farm, and no the farm animals don’t live in heated barns, but in this extreme cold they are not pastured either. We do all we can to make sure they do not suffer the extremes of weather. Breeders who do small scale breeding for the betterment of the breed are all that should be allowed.

It’s truly sad the dogs that have died due to the conditions of this place. This news has gone viral, this place will be shut down…unfortunately it will take time. Poor dogs, it’s truly heartbreaking.

I can not believe how long this is taking. Are you telling me these dogs have not been rescued yet. I thought you call the authorities, they investigate then immediately seize the dogs.

Please please shut this guy down….he is clearly ill……I have two dogs of my own both rescues and both from breeders just like this one…..they are still the best dogs in the world despite the hell we as humans, supposedly being he smarter species, put them through.

SHUT THEM DOWN……NEW YORK STINKS…..WE CANT TAKE CARE OF OUR PEOPLE AND HAVE NO REGARD FOR ANY KIND OF LIFE

If i could safely get in and take the dogs I would – it is our duty as human beings to take care of these animals…..

Caring breeders do not allow their dogs to live in these horrid conditions and freeze to death. Read the below…scroll to bottom.

And for those of you who say a plastic barrel on the ground is OK…why don’t you try it? You are beyond stupid.

I am just so troubled by people throwing the word state standards and what have you around. I have the understanding that state standards do not always put the rights of animals at it’s highest priority. Yes I have owned dogs that lived outside and have some that lived indoors. The fact of the matter is these dogs are considered a money maker and not loving pets. The overhead is kept low so as to make a larger profit. The laws where this is happening is not adequate to keep these dogs from suffering. I hope that these law makers there have every frozen dog and pup put on their door step. I am a person that believes in Karma and I believe they will see the Karma come back.

Maybe it is also time for the IRS to audit these abusers. Their info says they have been breeding for 20 years – do we think they have been reporting all of their breeding income???????

If you’ve done office parties or corporate work, make sure to mention that as well.
It is an industry norm that you offer a hotel room for the comedian at the same time.
Do some research and find out as much as you can about each open mic – try to
find the one that is most positively reviewed, gets the biggest crowd and that is attended by the most comedians.
