‘Animal Cops’ Exposes Puppy Mills

Apr 1, 2009  •  Post A Comment

Not all stories about animals are warm and fuzzy.
A special episode of “Animal Cops: Philadelphia” airing April 27 takes a look at puppy mills, which churn out dogs for profit, without consideration of the quality of life for the animals, which suffer from neglect and disease.
“Puppy Mills: Exposed” uses photographic and video evidence and the firsthand accounts of investigators and employees who brought down some of the largest puppy-mill operations in the country.
The special starts at Limestone Kennels in Pennsylvania, dubbed “the puppy mill capital of the East.” State law enforcement officials raided Limestone last year and rescued more than 80 dogs.
What the officers saw inside the puppy mill was astonishing, the network says. There were dogs packed into cramped cages, food dishes contaminated with feces and animals with multiple birth defects, including dogs with missing eyes. Incredibly, the kennel had passed inspections on numerous occasions, calling into question the enforcement of state laws surrounding the welfare of animals in Pennsylvania.
The program also shows mills being busted in Tennessee and Florida.
“Puppy mills are a blemish on a country that loves and respects its dogs,” said Marjorie Kaplan, president and general manager of Animal Planet. “‘Puppy Mills: Exposed’ tells the truth about these operations—no matter how disturbing—in order to incite emotions and action in everyone who watches.”
“Animal Cops: Philadelphia” is a Granada Anglia production. For Granada Anglia, Marie Thomas is executive producer. Dawn Sinsel is the executive producer for Animal Planet.
