Animal Cruelty Costs Company

Paws Up!
To the U.S. Department of Agriculture for fining Triple F Farms, a ferret farm in Pennsylvania, $44,000.

According to a news story, “A large Pennsylvania ferret farm that supplies animals to the Centers for Disease Control as well as pet retailers, has been fined $44,000 by the federal government for violating animal welfare and labor laws.

Ferrets and other small animals deserve our protection.

“The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) fined Triple F Farms, Inc., in Sayre, $16,679 for violating at least eight regulations of the Animal Welfare Act, and the factory must pay employees $28,124.98 in back wages for 38 violations of the Fair Labor Standards Act….”

Take Action: Send USDA a note of thanks for the actions taken in this case and urge them to continue to protect the animals of this country.
