Judge delays Cook County puppy mill ban to allow suit to go forward »

Excerpt:

The stores argue that the ordinance, if allowed, will put pet shops “out of business and cause financial ruin to them and their owners.”

Animal rights activists, including Dianne Arp of the Companion Animal Protection Society, have said pet stores get dogs from puppy mills with poor conditions and several violations of laws created to protect animals.

The next status hearing on the case will take place at 9:30 a.m. Oct. 22

Unleash Puppy Mill Law? »

Excerpt: 

Dianne Arp, the Chicago outreach coordinator of the Companion Animal Protection Society, said many of Berning’s breeders have had serious violations in recent years. She pledged to supply the board with proof Berning was lying about the conditions at his breeders’ facilities.

“You can read with your eyes in black and white these violations he just said they don’t have,” she added.

The Companion Animal Protection Society has protested Berning’s stores for seven years, Arp said, forcing him to close one location. Sales at the remaining shops have declined, she claimed.
