Puppy Mills in Missouri: Second Lawrence County Facility in Trouble

According to the Missouri Alliance for Animal Legislation, continuing efforts to crack down on substandard breeding facilities in Missouri have yielded charges against a second facility in Lawrency County.  The MO Attorney General's office entered a consent judgement against Shirley Gilbert for violations of the new Aninal Care Facilities Act.

Gilbert operated Wolfgang's Puppies and Gee Gee's Yorkies.  Gilbert operated her breeding facility without a license;  failed to provide adequate veterinary care to animals who were in obvious medical distress;  failed to provide adequate ventilation and odor control;  failed to provide clean, dry bedding and wind and rain breaks to protect the dogs from the elements;  failed to collect and remove animal waste;  failed to clean and sanitize the facility or to provide adequate space for the dogs;  and failed to provide housing that protected the animals from injury.
