The Fraternal Order of Police is supporting the Humane Society of the United States reward program to aid in stopping puppy mills. The Humane Society of the United States is offering up to $5,000 for information that leads to the arrest and conviction of a puppy mill operator for illegal animal cruelty.
President of the Fraternal Order of Police, Chuck Canterbury, stated, “Puppy mills are known to breed animal cruelty, often in violation of state cruelty laws. The Fraternal Order of Police is glad to have this new tool to help protect dogs in puppy mills, and we thank the Humane Society of the United States for making this reward possible.”
The Humane Society of the United States instructs that if you have information about a potentially illegal puppy mill you should call your local police department and give them as many details as possible. You can also call the the puppy mill tip line, 877-MILL-TIP. If your information helps lead to the arrest and conviction of a puppy mill operator then you just need to get a letter from your law enforcement agency stating that you tip helped. The letter can be mailed to the following address:
