PETITION TARGET: Spring Green Town Board
UPDATE (5/26/2022): Following the approved conditional permit, the Village of Spring Green Plan Commission denied the approved conditional permit because they were unaware of what the facility was being used for, according to Dane4Dogs. However, Sauk County Land and Resource Committee reapproved the permit, but found the facility to be in violation of the conditions, along with 10 missing dogs, where Dane4Dogs sued Sauk County for approving the permit. The judge denied the permit of the whelping facility. In the meantime, Village of Spring Green was sued by the puppy mill for denying keeping 50+ dogs in the facility. We will continue to watch this case. — Lady Freethinker Staff
The short life of a laboratory dog is filled with pain, suffering, and loneliness. Housed in cold, hard metal cages, they may be poisoned, infected with deadly disease, chemically burned, or brutally sliced open.
Beagles are commonly used because of their trusting and calm demeanor. And now, village leaders in Spring Green, Wisconsin may allow a commercial puppy mill that will breed these gentle dogs and sell them to labs for experimentation.
Anywhere from 150 to 1000 beagles would be held at this facility, with puppies torn away from their mothers at just 7 to 8 weeks old to force the females to breed again and again.
A conditional permit has already been approved! We must speak out to stop this puppy mill of horrors from being built.
Sign this petition urging the Spring Green Town Board members to halt all plans to create this cruel facility.
