I am a pet dealer in Volusia County, I obtain and abide with all the regulations according to law including the extra laws in which Volusia County Animal control has put in place.

Volusia County Animal Control - Officer Greg in particular, has been less than fair. They decided to suspend my license, based on complaint rather than law.

Based on many conversations with Animal Control in Volusia County they are against the sale of any animals and would rather no one sell puppies. Well how do you think America would be without our pets? Therefore, they are acting on emotions rather than laws.

The pet business is hard, we are often given the perception of not caring about the puppy or the parents and in it only for the money, and I would encourage anyone to provide me the name of one person or one company that is primarily a breeder or pet dealer that has a name on wall street or stocks available. This business is not a huge profit business, it is a labor of love and well if you can pay the bills with it, what is wrong with that? And trust me, it barely pays the bills.

The Vets profit well from our sales, that turns into a client for them, the city in general profits, (each dog and cat is registered and that requires a fee), the big dog food companies, they profit... but because Animal Control does not like the fact that dogs are being "sold" and oh by the way, in Volusia county you can not even give a puppy or dog away unless a Vet certifies it healthy... help me to understand who is profiting and why they never want anyone to breed dogs.

The Animal Control officers are not versed in the law -in my optinion, this officer in particular has to keep looking back at the law for reference, how is it that they are put into a position of authority and not know the law.

God bless everyone who thinks they will be able to buy a pet in the next 5 years as county by county our rights are being slowly taken away, I believe the way of the future is it seems you will be able to go into Wal-Mart or a big chain, pick out your puppy, run it through the register and then try to fight that huge orginazation, just try. Then they will say a puppy mill is the best way to raise dogs, it helps to regulate the industry.... I hope that is not our future !!!

I like the chip idea , Yes I agree , I do think all breeders should chip all their pup's also ,,,,,, I'm going to suggest this to my breeder friend ,,,,,, But she does have a open door policy , Which I think all breeders should ,,,,I mean really those pup's are coming from your doggie children , So they are grandpup's to the breeder ,  And I really really think certain breeds  should not be bred until, those breeds in shelter's have home's instead of being put down ,,,,,,,,And by the way I don't know the breeder on this site ,,,,,,Who know's maybe she has a open door policy , I hope so .  And if you breed pit's ,,,,,,,, please check out the shelter's across the country and see how many are being put down every year ,,,or even every month ,   Breaks my heart

unless you provide the number of animal shelters in your area, the number of NO KILL animal shelters in your area, and the number of animals dumped and euthanized in your area. I know several persons in the Animal Control field. Do you know how difficult it is for them to know that most of the animals they pick up off the streets will soon be killed because they were abandoned?

If you are truly a "caring" breeder, then I suggest that you microchip all puppies you sell, that you be responsible for any dog that you sell if it is dumped, and that you encourage other breeders to do the same.

I see nothing wrong with requiring you to provide a health certificate for each puppy that you sell. The rescue groups I work with do that automatically. No one "makes" us do it. We do it for the benefit of the animal. All animals are spayed/neutered, current on their shots, canines are heartworm tested and treated prior to adoption if necessary.
