  • If you have an animal humane society in your area or an ASPCA, that is who you would contact. Call the local sheriff's office as well if you cant find the info through the phone book or internet for your area. They are always willing to direct my call where it needs to go if I cant find the right information. Good Luck!

  • Call, Police Dept-they will forward you to their Animal welfare/Cruelity Dept., Your ASPCA, Better Business Bureau, Write a review on the Internet, Word of Mouth. Good Luck..Oh, where do you live (State) and what is the name of the kennel? In South Jersey We all - South Philly included - use Country Kennels..AMAZING, THEY ARE THE BEST!

  • Your local humane officer. They are normally found in your local animal shelter or ASPCA. If all else fails you can contact the police. They can direct you to the proper people to call.

  • Make sure to contact the better business bereau as well. This way if they get out of it other people will know before they bring their dogs there.

  • That's so terrible! I work in a kennel and we strive to keep it clean and smelling nice. We get compliments all the time about the cleanliness! I hope that kennel your dog was at either cleans up or shuts down. I suggest that anyone who is thinking of kenneling their dogs to go and take a tour of the facilities first, then there won't be any surprises!
