What is wrong with this scenario?
1. Building put in without proper zoning and approval within the two-mile limit of the McCook City zoning regulations. At first without adequate air conditioning and proper disposal of feces.
2. 30-plus breeding animals purchased from a breeder who was to be closed by the state for improper care and living conditions for 170-plus animals used for breeding purposes. (If the state closed it because of unsanitary conditions, then what kind of health were the animals in that were purchased and what kind of puppies will they produce?)
The remainder of the animals were taken in by the Omaha Humane Society and many of them needed medical attention and others euthanized because of their health problems.
3. No license or approval from the State of Nebraska before kennel was in operation.
4. As it has been several months that this kennel has been operating, how many dogs and puppies now are housed in a 10 x 20‚ building in small cages without an outdoor exercise area? And what kind of conditions are the litters being born in? Also is there someone there to see that the mother and puppies are cared for after birth?
Perhaps my question should have been, what is right with this scenario?
The final approval will be decided by the City Council on Tuesday, Sept. 4. If this bothers anyone who cares for the health and well being of any of God's creatures please express your thoughts to any Council Member or attend the meeting.
"Beyond the pedigrees, beyond the competition, beyond the trophies. There is caring, knowledge, and people who love dogs almost as much as dogs love people!"
Thanks for your interest,
