    Yes because living breathing creatures can be considered the artwork of a corperation, YUK.

    I guess this means a huge new facility for the shelter as well that's good.

    This comment confuses me... and also, I mean it's good that they're shutting it down, but to do so they had to give the scumbag who runs it a VERY large sum of money. I'm all for shutting down puppy mills, but I wish they hadn't PURCHASED it. If the conditions were as bad as they say, would they not have been able to just shut it down?

    Shame on the humane society for putting even more money into the hands of scum like that kennel owner.

    Since it's ok for the humane society to buy dogs from them, why not the general public?

    Yeah but that goes to show that anyone who buys a puppy because they feel sorry for it stuck in a petstore is doing the same thing.
    I don't think they should have paid him for the dogs...and whats with the comment of "selling dogs to the humane society" this sounds like a total scam to me, run by the people who should be shutting this kind of stuff down.
    Like someone else mentioned, if they conditions were so bad, why didn't they close it down and fine the hell out of him? No, instead they paid him to do what most of us feel is wrong...
    This saddens me.

    Well, its EXTREMELY hard to close down a puppy mill. With the current law, they are EXEMPT from animal cruelty laws that apply to pets because their animals are considered livestock. Also, the USDA, who is supposed to inspect these facilities doesn't really care about puppymills and won't shut them down for anything. This was probably the only way the WHS could think of to shut down that puppymill.

    Laws need to be changed, but we're too afraid to change the law because we don't want good breeders caught up in the mix.

    I'm glad the place is getting shut down, really. But you guys are right there are some oddities in the story.

    that part made me want to vomit.
