Policy Statement on Commercial Producers
The Puli Club of America Rescue Trust exists to act as a steward and consistent advocate for the welfare and stability of our breed. The Rescue Trust is painfully aware that Pulis have fallen into the hands of mass producers (puppy mills) and auction houses. These entitites do not share the Puli Club of America’s commitment to the welfare of the breed or the individual dogs. It is a difficult and heart wrenching decision, but the Rescue Trust cannot support the purchase of Pulik from commercial producers, auction houses or pet shops. To do so would inadvertently perpetuate the problem by creating a seller’s market for these people which ultimately aids in their exploitation of our breed.
The PCA Rescue Trust will continue to support the surrender of these Pulik for careful evaluation and placement by the Rescue Placement committee.
