No more Puppy Mills in 2012 is fast becoming a reality as Susan Chana Lask supports the Town of Gorham residents against opening a Puppy Mill there. She has been activily involved with the Town representatives and provided law and other documents to help the Towm stop the opening. Today the Ontario County Planning Board voted for a moratorium against opening the puppy mill. See Lask's March 14, 2012 letter to the Town.
In a country already suffering from an over population of dogs, cats and other companion animals, there are nearly six thousand commercial kennels or “puppy mills” in the United States licensed by the U.S. Department of Agriculture perpetuating the problem. Approximately four million dogs are bred in puppy mills annually and an estimated four to five million die every year (almost 11,000 daily). Causes of death include but are not limited to, neglect and starvation, untreated illnesses, and lack of heat or air conditioning in puppy mills. The conditions in puppy mills are downright atrocious and inhumane.
On December 29, 2012, Elena, by her attorney Susan Chana Lask, filed a complaint as ELENA ZAKHAROVA for herself and as Representative of her dog, Umka, against Raising Rover in New York County Civil Court. The effect of naming Umka in the Complaint is to show Umka is a living being and the subject of this case. It is not about Elena-this is about Umka and any puppy created defective because of bad breeding and left to live in pain.

There will be paperwork for you to read and sign and consumer laws that you need to understand to avoid the additional fees your salesperson tries to tack onto the price.
