There are two sides to every story!! Here at B and C Kennels, we take great pride in the happiness that we have brought to thousands of families over the years. Our kennel has a daily cleaning staff and every pup is touched and talked to every single day! We are a cooperative kennel. "What does that mean". It means that at this time we raise French Bulldogs, Yorkies and Schnauzers. We have family that also own kennels who raise the other pups that we are able to offer to our clients. We are all licensed, very clean, very well run kennels.
For the past few years, breeding kennels have been under attack by local "animal rights activists". It doesn't matter to them what type of kennel
you run. If you breed a single dog, you
must be a horrible person. In their
opinion, nobody should ever breed; adoption is the only way to go. I
could go on and on about "retail rescues". Make no mistake that "rescues"
have turned into a "retail" business who are now sheltered by paying
no taxes and not having to adhere to all the care and housing standards that a
licensed kennel does. They also run on
donations and volunteers. Where are all
those "adoption" fees going?
The most important thing to think about is what type of dog do you want
in your life. If saving an adult dog and
giving them a great home is what your heart tells you to do, by all means, you
should adopt. But please do your
research on the facility you visit. If
they have litters of pups available for adoption, that should be a red
flag. Where do you think those litters
come from? They will tell you they come
from horrible "puppy mills" and they rescued the moms. That is not always the case. Make sure you do your research on them.
The United States Humane
Society whom I believe when first conceived was probably an honorable
enterprise has now turned into an animal rights activist group in alignment with
groups like ASPCA and PETA. One of
their missions is to put every breeder out of business by tainting the
public. It is well documented that the
photos they use of "puppy mills" are either extremely outdated or
taken in foreign countries. They have
put out a "Horrible 100 Puppy Mills in the United States" list each
year for the past few years. Although,
to my knowledge they have never been to my kennel or really know anything about
me, they have put me on this list. This is absolutely ludicrous. Check out this link to see a commercial that was run during the 2017 Super Bowl to help expose The Humane Society for what it is. https://www.humanewatch.org/did-you-see-our-super-bowl-ad/
I am subjected to random
visits by the Illinois Department of Agriculture as well as our county health and animal control departments and have always had great
reports regarding the housing, health and cleanliness of our kennel. I am a member of the Cavalry Group who
protects and defends breeders from this type of attack and defamation.
If you have taken the time
to research the type of pup that would be best suited to your lifestyle and
family and taken the time to research our kennel, please take the time to
research the United States Humane Society.
Only 1% of donations actually go to helping animals, the rest goes to
propaganda and padding the CEO's bank accounts, which he happens to keep in the
Cayman Islands. Why does a not-for-profit
organization need a tax haven in the Cayman Islands. A very good resource to look into can be
found at www.humanewatch.org
Feel free to schedule a
visit and meet our staff and see our facility and I am confident you will come
away knowing that we have a loving, caring staff and a legal and well run
kennel. My facebook page has hundreds of
very happy clients and we have had many repeat clients over the years. Hopefully the great reviews we receive every
day will help to ease your mind.
We work 24/7 for the care
of our animals and to have an organization such as HSUS try to destroy us is
Below please find a letter
written by our attorney.
