Breeders Used By CT Pet Stores By Karen Rasmussen,WIlton, CT 12/4/2013

Breeders used by CT Pet Stores
Based on testimony submitted to the
Task Force Concerning the Sale of Cats and Dogs at CT Pet Shops from Inhumane Origins

by Karen Rasmussen, Wilton, CT 12/4/2013

Research method
In Connecticut, a Certificate of Origin must accompany each dog sold or offered for sale in Connecticut pet shops. Such Certificate must identify the name and address of the breeder and broker of the dog, and be filed with the CT Department of Agriculture. CT Gen. Stat. 22-354 (b). The information listed in the Certificates is then plugged into USDA’s breeder and broker database to obtain the size of each operation and complete violation history. Photographs have been obtained from the USDA through FOIA.
This report provides an alphabetical listing of 335 breeders who had USDA violations during the period 2010 2012. Each breeder was used by at least one pet shop in Connecticut.
In 2012, over 600 breeders supplied Connecticut pet stores. 335 of these had USDA violations. 156 were unlicensed.

Rios, Valente 43A5652 14 pages of violations on 1/12, plus more in 2012. HSUS Horrible Hundred. 6 years of violations. From USDA report -
A 4-5 week old Maltese/Poodle appeared lethargic. Puppy had large buildup of fecal material around anal area,
dried & hard. Gums were pale, abdomen firm, he was warm to touch. Employee took to clean up. Upon return,
fecal matter had been removed, but tail had an open wound. A piece of sharp bone was protruding from middle
of wound and flesh was bright red. Licensee stated he had docked the puppy's tail 4-5 days ago.
When asked to explain how they perform this procedure, licensee stated they, "Dip the scissors in alcohol & cut
the tails off with scissors." When asked if he uses any type of anesthesia, or cleans the tail before amputating,
the licensee said, "No." When asked what he does if the puppies' tails bleed, he stated they, "Put a yellow
powder on it." When asked where they perform this procedure the licensee stated that they, "Do this in the
cage" the puppies are in.
In a nutshell, he was told by the inspector that this did not meet veterinary professional standards. That's IT.
