Actions which are directed to be taken are not all that may be required of the kennel operator to come into compliance. The kennel operator is responsible for taking any and all actions necessary to come into compliance.
Inspection of the kennel took place on January 28, 2011. A total of 242 adult dogs and 122 puppies were located on the premises at the time of the inspection. The kennels license was viewed; along with rabies self certification letter and state form exemption letter. Inspection was performed with Supervisor Donmoyer and Dr. Ward. The inspection of January 28, 2011 is as follows:

21.21(b)/207(b) Wardens observed wood which was unsealed / untreated and appeared rotted in a few primary enclosures. This Warden directs that the kennel owner take the following action(s): 21.21(b) The interior building surfaces of housing facilities shall be constructed and maintained so that they are water resistant and may be readily sanitized. 21.24(d)/207(b) Wardens observed vinyl type coating coming off of the metal strand flooring in several primary enclosures; as well as dog’s feet passing through opening in the metal strand flooring. This Warden directs that the kennel owner take the following action(s): 21.24(d) A dog may be sheltered in a primary enclosure having metal strand flooring provided the following conditions are met: (1)The metal strand flooring is coated with a vinyl type coating. (2)The coated metal strand flooring shall be kept in good repair. (3)The coated metal strand flooring shall be made of mesh construction that does not allow the dog’s feet to pass through any opening in the floor and does not otherwise cause injury to the dog. (4)The coated metal strand flooring shall be constructed of sufficient diameter (gauge) to provide a completely rigid floor area sufficient to support the weight of dogs housed in the enclosure so that the metal strand floor does not bend or sag from the weight of the dogs. (5)The dogs shall be provided with a draft free area that protects the dogs from inclement weather and is large enough to hold all the occupants of the primary enclosure at the same time comfortably. 21.26/207(b) Wardens observed a strong presence of ammonia emanating from the adult dog building upon entering the area where the dogs were being housed, this odor was so strong making it hard to breathe and causing our eyes to burn that wardens walked out and retrieved respirator masks from our vehicles so we could proceed with the inspection. This Warden directs that the kennel owner take the following action(s): 21.26 Indoor housing facilities for dogs shall be sufficiently ventilated when dogs are present to minimize drafts, odors, ammonia levels and moisture condensation. Ventilation shall be provided by means of windows, doors, vents or air conditioners. Auxiliary ventilation from fans, blowers, or air conditioners shall be provided when the ambient temperature is 85°F (29.5°C) or higher. The relative humidity shall be maintained 8/19/2011 7:06:54 PM

at a level that ensures health and well-being of the dog housed therein in accordance with generally accepted husbandry practices. 21.28(c)/207(b) Wardens observed food and water receptacles provided to dogs in several primary enclosures were unclean having dirt caked on them and rusted which is a sign of deterioration. This Warden directs that the kennel owner take the following action(s): 21.28(c) Food and water receptacles shall be accessible to dogs kept in the kennel and shall be located to avoid contamination by excreta. The receptacles shall be durable and shall be kept clean. Self-feeders and waters may be used but shall be sanitized regularly to prevent molding, deterioration or caking of feed. 21.29(b)/207(b) Wardens observed, in several primary enclosures housing dogs, an accumulation of food waste, cobwebs, hair, dirt, dust, and debris along tops and corners of said enclosures. This Warden directs that the kennel owner take the following action(s): 21.29(b) Primary enclosures for dogs shall be sanitized a minimum of once daily, and as often as is necessary to prevent an accumulation of debris or excreta or a disease hazard. A dog may not be placed in a primary enclosure previously occupied unless the enclosure has been sanitized. 21.29(c)/207(b) Wardens observed an accumulation of hair and cobwebs in both of the housing facilities, and saw rodent droppings on top of the solid topped primary enclosures housing dogs in the smaller housing facility as well. Wardens also observed rust on the fencing in the outside run area of primary enclosures in the smaller housing facility. This Warden directs that the kennel owner take the following action(s): 21.29(c) The buildings and grounds of kennels shall be maintained, kept clean and in good repair to protect the animal from injury and to facilitate practices required by this chapter. Kennels shall have an effective program that controls ingress by insects, ectoparasites and avian and mammalian pests or conditions that would allow or encourage infestation in a kennel are indicative of an ineffective program and unsanitary environmental sanitation in the kennel. 21.30/207(b ) Wardens observed numerous dogs with dental disease, eye and ear infections; veterinary checks were ordered on these dogs. This Warden directs that the kennel owner take the following action(s): An employee of the Department may visually observe the physical condition of a dog sheltered at a kennel.

If a dog exhibits signs of poor health, the kennel owner shall have proof of adequate veterinary care for the dog.

207(h)(1) Wardens observed several primary enclosures with rusted framing; and a few primary enclosures with unsealed / untreated wood which also appeared to be rotted. This Warden directs that the kennel owner take the following action(s): 207(h)(1) Primary enclosures must be designed and constructed so that they are structurally sound and must be kept in good repair. 207(h)(2)(viii) Wardens observed several primary enclosures with water provided to dogs which was completely frozen solid. This Warden directs that the kennel owner take the following action(s): 207(h)(2)(viii) Provide potable water at all times, unless otherwise directed by a veterinarian in a writing that shall be kept in the kennel records. 207(h)(2)(x) Wardens observed several primary enclosures with dog’s feet passing through opening in the metal strand flooring.

Actions which are directed to be taken are not all that may be required of the kennel operator to come into compliance. The kennel operator is responsible for taking any and all actions necessary to come into compliance.
Inspection of the kennel took place on June 17, 2011. A total of 195 adult dogs and 125 puppies were located on the premises at the time of the inspection. The kennel’s license was viewed, along with rabies self certification letter and the state form exemption letter. Inspection was performed with Supervisor Donmoyer and State Vet Dr. Ward. The inspection of June 17, 2011 is as follows: 402 Veterinary examinations were ordered on dogs under Section 402(a) based on warden’s observations of the condition of dogs during an inspection. Kennel is in compliance with Section 402(d) because veterinary examinations were completed within the 72 hour time frame. 21.21(a)/207(b) / 207(h)(2)(i) Wardens observed, in several primary enclosures, additional flooring that was placed on top of the primary flooring to help prevent dog’s feet from falling through openings, was not properly fastened to the primary flooring. This additional flooring also had sharp points and edges. This warden directs that the kennel owner take the following action(s): 21.21(a) Indoor and outdoor housing facilities for dogs shall be maintained in a manner to protect the dogs from injury and to contain the dogs. 207(h)(2)(i) Have no sharp points or edges that could injure the dogs. 21.24(d)(3)/207(b) / 207(h)(2)(x) Wardens observed, in a few primary enclosures, dog’s feet passing through the openings in the metal strand flooring. This warden directs that the kennel owner take the following action(s): 21.24(d) A dog may be sheltered in a primary enclosure having metal strand flooring provided the following conditions are met: (3) The coated metal strand flooring shall be made of mesh construction that does not allow the dog’s feet to pass through any opening in the floor and does not otherwise cause injury to the dog. 207(h)(2)(x) Have floors that are constructed in a manner that protects the dogs’ feet and legs from injury. The floor shall not permit the feet of a dog housed in the primary enclosure to pass through any opening. 21.26/207(b) / 207(h)(7) Wardens observed, in the “large dog building”, that there was no fan inside the primary enclosure to ventilate the facility when the ambient temperature reached 85 degrees. Wardens also noted the presence of ammonia in the main kennel building where dogs are housed. This warden directs that the kennel owner take the following action(s): 21.26 Indoor housing facilities for dogs shall be sufficiently ventilated when dogs are present to minimize 8/19/2011 7:06:54 PM

drafts, odors, ammonia levels and moisture condensation. Ventilation shall be provided by means of windows, doors, vents or air conditioners. Auxiliary ventilation from fans, blowers or air conditioners shall be provided when the temperature is 85°F(29.5°C) or higher. The relative humidity shall be maintained at a level that ensures the health and well-being of the dog housed therein in accordance with generally accepted husbandry practices. 207(h)(7) Housing facilities for dogs must be sufficiently ventilated at all times when dogs are present to provide for their health and well-being and to minimize odors, drafts, ammonia levels and to prevent moisture condensation. The Canine Health Board shall determine auxiliary ventilation to be provided if the ambient temperature is 85 degrees F or higher. The relative humidity must be maintained at a level that ensures the health and well-being of the dogs housed therein. The appropriate ventilation humidity and ammonia ranges shall be determined by the Canine Health Board. 21.27/207(b) / 207(h)(8) Wardens needed to use flashlights in the main kennel building to be able to see into the solid box portion of the primary enclosures to view the dogs housed therein. This warden directs that the kennel owner take the following action(s): 21.27 Indoor housing facilities in kennels shall have ample lighting by natural or artificial means. Lighting in indoor housing facilities shall be sufficient to allow observation of the physical condition of the dogs so housed, and to allow observation of the sanitary condition of the indoor facility. Dogs housed in these facilities shall be provided a regular diurnal lighting cycle. 207(h)(8) Housing facilities for dogs must be lighted well enough to permit routine inspection and cleaning of the facility and observation of the dogs. Animal areas must be provided a regular diurnal lighting cycle of either natural or artificial light. Lighting must be uniformly diffused throughout housing facilities and provide sufficient illumination to aid in maintaining good housekeeping practices, adequate cleaning and observation of animals at any time and for the well-being of the animals. Primary enclosures must be placed so as to protect the dogs from excessive light. The appropriate lighting ranges shall be determined by the Canine Health Board. 21.28(c)/207(b) Wardens observed, in several primary enclosures, feeders that had a buildup of dirt and food caked on them. This warden directs that the kennel owner take the following action(s): 21.28(c) Food and water receptacles shall be accessible to dogs kept in the kennel and shall be located to avoid contamination by excreta. The receptacles shall be durable and shall be kept clean. Self-feeders and waterers may be used but shall be sanitized regularly to prevent molding, deterioration or caking of feed. 21.29(c)/207(b) Wardens observed, in several primary enclosures with outdoor runs, the presence of rust on the pipes used as framing. This warden directs that the kennel owner take the following action(s): 21.29(c) The buildings and grounds of kennels shall be maintained, kept clean and in good repair to protect the animal from injury and to facilitate practices required by this chapter. Kennels shall have an effective program that controls ingress by insects, ectoparasites and avian and mammalian pests or conditions that would allow or encourage infestation in a kennel are indicative of an ineffective program and unsanitary environmental sanitation in the kennel. A re inspection of the kennel will take place at a later date. *A Waiver application has been filed for this kennel in accordance with Section 207(j) of the Dog Law. If a Waiver has been granted regarding a particular section of the Dog Law, this section will be marked N/A. Waiver denials may result in a limited period of time to come in to compliance with a particular section of the Dog Law. Such section may nevertheless receive an “unsatisfactory” rating during that limited time period.
