Right now, Congress is choosing their priorities for the 2023 Farm Bill, and they need to hear that Goldie’s Act should be one of them!
The Farm Bill provides guidance for the USDA, so this is a huge opportunity to protect dogs in puppy mills. Decisions are being made NOW about what goes in—we need your voice!
Specifically, this legislation would require USDA to:
Goldie was one of hundreds of dogs kept in horrific conditions by Daniel Gingerich. USDA inspectors documented Goldie’s deterioration month after month, even filming her skeletal condition. They had the authority to help her, but USDA policies failed. Shockingly, her story is not unique.
Goldie was found in a barn, along with dead dogs. She had no water, her bones were protruding, she had sores on her body and zero body fat. According to state inspection reports, a veterinarian was called, and USDA inspectors allowed her to be euthanized on site.
