Updated to include link to follow-up story.
The Humane Society of the United States releases an annual report, highlighting 100 problem puppy sellers in the country.
The 2021 Horrible Hundred report says Missouri tops the list, with 21 puppy sellers. Kansas has seven on the list.
Locally, in Neosho, Missouri, the report details when a dog at J and K Puppies LLC and Puppy Travelers was found lethargic and with dried mucus around it’s nostrils.
In Oronogo, Missouri, the report says dogs at Darin Miller/ David Miller Kennel “appeared to have barely enough room to turn around, no space to run and play, and very little headroom in their small hutches.” The report says the USDA has not inspected the facility since 2019.
And it details dogs at Whispering Oaks Kennel in Coffeyville, Kansas, were photographed in crowded enclosures.
None of these businesses have been cited by the USDA.
And the owner of Whispering Oaks refutes the report. Read more here: https://www.koamnewsnow.com/sek-humane-society-takes-in-seized-dogs-kennel-owner-refutes-horrible-hundred-report/
