“The AWA’s animal care standards are not optimal standards but survival standards, which are so low that licensed puppy dealers can still legally keep hundreds of dogs in small, stacked cages for their entire lives, with little or no exercise, enrichment or human attention, as long as the dogs are provided with basic provisions such as food, water and rudimentary shelter,” HSUS said in the report. “Because the standards are so minimal, it is even more shocking to see how many breeders fail to comply with even the most basic rules.”
