Mr. Peabody, the puppy mill pet store dog to whom this website is dedicated.


       This is Mr. Peabody, the "face" of the Wisconsin Puppy Mill Project. Please read his full story at: The Story of Mr. Peabody, a WI Puppymill "Product".

       Pea was bred and born in the Wisconsin at the commercial breeding facility registered by the USDA to Yvonne Skinner. He languished for weeks in a filthy cage in the notorious Noah's Ark pet shop in Sheboygan, Wisconsin, at the mercy of neglectful and sometimes abusive sales people, until his "mom" took him home.

       Because of poor breeding, chronic health problems, and emotional scars due to his background, Pea was not generally a sociable dog. However, to those few people who were lucky enough to earn his love and trust, he was a staunch, loyal, and protective friend.

       Pea Buddy's short, frequently pain-filled life, was the inspiration for his "mom" to spearhead the fight for tough, self-funding, enforceable new laws to put an end to pet profiteering.

       NOTE: It took 12 years, but on 1 December 2009, Governor Doyle signed WI Act 90, the ground-breaking Wisconsin Dog Seller's Law, which, with the addition of detailed Administrative Rules, went into effect on 1 June 2011.

       For Pea, even though we still have a lot more work to do -- Promises Kept!
