Decision on Unlicensed Breeder
Following is the judgment in Case.net regarding Shirley Gilbert, aka Wolfgang's Puppies and Gee Gee's Yorkies:
COUNSEL AGREE TO RESPONDENT TO GO OUT OF BUSINESS FOR 6 YEARS, TO DISPOSE WITH DOGS ON 6-30-11 AND RELEASE TO PETITIONER TO A RESCUE AGENCY. RESPONDENT TO HARBOR NO MORE THAN 3 DOGS & REMOVE ALL ADVERTISEMENTS AND REFRAIN FROM ALL ACTS NOT ALLOWED BY NON LICENSED AGENCY. $500 CIVIL PENALTY, $1000 INVESTIGATIVE COSTS & $200 RESTITUTION. JUDGMENT ENTERED AGAINST RESPONDENT. FORMAL JUDGMENT TO BE SUPPLIED WITH 30 DAYS.
Stripping away the legal language, Shirley Gilbert can no longer sell puppies, and she has to give up all but three of her dogs to a rescue organization.
