NEWS: With the support of Dane4Dogs, local residents are gathering signatures in support of an ordinance to ban research puppy mills. Supporters of the ban are urged to write letters to the editor of their local paper, encouraging their legislators to enact a ban on research puppy mills in their community. 

Breeding beagles for cruel research procedures. That’s what has been the goal all along for Spring Green residents Jill Janssen Kane and Clint Kane, as they have been applying for permits to house large numbers of dogs in Spring Green. First they applied for a kennel permit with no mention that the dogs would be bred for medical testing.

Channel 3000 reported that, “Village of Spring Green Chairman Joel Marcus said he was not originally aware the animals would be bred for medical testing. This information was brought to the village by the community and confirmed by the owners, Jill and Clint Kane.

“I have to admit I felt blindsided. I did not have this information beforehand,” Marcus said. “So we immediately put those questions to the Kanes, and they did admit that the purpose of their operation is to raise dogs for medical research.”

Dane4Dogs, has gathered substantial information with suggestions for what can be done. We support their hard work and will do everything we can to help put an end to this upsetting plan. Be sure to sign the petition to voice your opposition to the dog breeding research facility in Spring Green.
