I have heard from 2 different folks today that there is a new large breeding facility going in on Route 414 South in the township of Romulus. It is an Amish farm . Please if you live in Romulus call your town board and get some good zoning codes put in place. Your planning board is currently working on this. These blights are much easier to stop coming in than they ever are to get removed once they are established. Please do not allow our farm land to be turned into large scale dog breeding farms. It is a life of misery for these breeding dogs.

I haven't seen anything in the Planning Board minutes, so I went to look at the zoning code for Romulus. Kennels are not listed as a special use, so they may be able to put it up without any kind of review at all.

I am going to contact the town immediately and tell them that this use should not be allowed without public comment.

HA, I think they know what the public will say ;\) The public can howl, growl, snarl, bare their teeth and bark and fight all they want, will still happen since it's legal.

Do you honestly see them doing that with the money they bring in?

Once we know what the rules are then we can lobby for change.

This one might slip by, but an informed and organized public can certainly make sure that future commercial kennels get proper review and scrutiny and that existing kennels do not expand.

Puppies are not livestock and are not an agricultural business.

Varick stopped the pig farms with a moratorium.

There is no $$$$ to the town to have these here. They won't make the property more valuable. Let's organize and stop them.

You think only the breeders make the big money of the doggies? Why do you think it is so hard to get the laws changed or to get heard, people with the most money have a much louder voice.

I like to think that people with the most votes get heard.

The problem is that the public does not speak up and the big lobbies, like the farm bureau does.

There are more of us than there are of them, let's just try and tell Kaiser and the rest of the town officials that we don't want the suffering and cruelty here, and see what happens.

Why give up without trying?

Thanks, Eileen, for bringing this to our attention. I hadn't heard about this until reading it here.

I am definitely against puppy mills in general and certainly not in the Town of Romulus. I have sent an email to Dave and have sent a link to this discussion to several of my neighbors to help spread the word.

Thanks also to whoever posted the names, numbers, and emails for Town of Romulus. Sorry, it's early and I can't remember who did that!! But, I appreciate it!! (Edited to say: Thanks, flbuldog!)

If anyone wants a dog, there are plenty available to adopt (like at Beverly Shelter) ~~ we don't need cruel puppy mills. Let's do what we can to stop this.
