Neglected Dogs in Swedish Kennel: please write, sample letter provided

A kennel in Växjö, Sweden, neglects the dogs in their “care”.

Recently, 15 puppies were rescued by the County Board after an inspection – they lacked water and were walking around in their own excrement, with feces and urine smeared over their coat. The rescued puppies required immediate veterinary care. Despite the intervention, the conditions were not improved by the owner. In August, a further inspection revealed that the owners were keeping 33 dogs more than what they were allowed. The dogs had no water and their cages were heavily contaminated with feces and urine. The inspectors said the dogs seemed stressed and showed typical “kennel symptoms”. One of the dogs seemed to have never been outside. Most of the animals had ear infections. The owner showed clear dismissal of the dogs’ situation.

In another inspection of the kennel last spring, they had found 30 emaciated dogs that had dried urine and feces in their fur. The puppies were, according to the report, dirty and skinny.

The County Administration has now warned the kennel owners and is considering banning them from raising dogs if they do not make any changes. The 15 dogs that were recovered will not be returned to the owner.

Räddade 15 hundar från Växjökenneln

Please demand that they ban the owners from raising dogs NOW !

SAMPLE LETTER:

To Whom It Concerns,

I was alarmed to read this article in Aftonbladet, regarding the kennel in Växjö where the owners have clearly been neglecting their dogs.

http://www.aftonbladet.se/nyheter/article7825210.ab

From what I understand, this is not the first time that the owners have been investigated with report findings indicating neglect;  the owners have proven to be indifferent to these report warnings, and should therefore be banned from breeding and keeping animals.

I am deeply concerned regarding this situation. More animals should not be subjected to neglect, cruelty, and suffering.  Please demonstrate that you find animal abuse intolerable by global standards by voiding their license and banning this kennel from keeping or raising animals!

Thank you.

Sincerely,

    Can I just say what a comfort to uncover a person that really knows what
    they are talking about on the internet. You actually
    realize how to bring an issue to light and make it important.
    More people ought to look at this and understand this side of thee story.

    I was surprised you aren’t more popular since you certainly possess the gift.
