Sick puppies are imported into the USA almost every day from foreign puppy mills. Many come from countries with no laws protecting dogs. These puppies are sold in US pet stores and online–and many are diseased and dying.
In 2008, as part of the Farm Bill, The HSUS urged Congress to pass a law to protect puppies under six months of age from being imported into the US for resale. It’s been six years, and the USDA still has yet to enforce the law.
This week is Puppy Mill Action Week, and we need your help to protect dogs and puppies.
Go to this HSUS page and use the form to personalize and submit a letter to USDA Secretary Tom Vilsack and urge him to finalize the Puppy Import Rule.
