Direct Sell...
« on: July 23, 2008, 02:04:29 PM »
Since the WI humane Society purchased one of WI largest puppy mill faciulities last week I was looking online for some information...

I see that another of WI largest PMs, Gerald Schultz, is not regulated by the USDA, and others aren't either because they direct sell...meaning they sell directly to the customer rather than thru a puppy store, or brokerage.

How the heck are you to stop them if they become just large BYB businesses???

Direct sale breeders are inspected by their customers; issue with care, cleanliness, sickly puppies, etc. are addressed through animal welfare and consumer protection laws.  These are probably better-regulated than many wholesale facilities, really, since they're inspected more frequently and the "inspectors" are more concerned about the actual animals rather than engineering standards.

In theory, Jennifer, I would say that SHOULD be how it is, but in actuality I would bet there are more of those people that feel they are rescuing a pup and purchase one...regardless of the conditions of the "kennel"! 

Gerald Schultz, one of WI largest puppy mill/BYB/Direct Sell is a horrendous facility, and yet people continue buying his pups!  Why???  I bet they are thinking they will be "saving" this puppy!
