Julie Nelson owner and breeder of the Jewels line, pictured here, was reported to Placer County Animal Control on 10-03-2018.
Not all breeders follow the American Kennel Club and American Cocker Spaniel Club rules and guidelines.
When they don't its up to use to hold them accountable by reporting them to the various agencies dedicated to preventing animal abuse, neglect and hoarding.
Animal neglect is the failure to provide basic care required for an animal to thrive.
The worst thing you can do if you witness or suspect animal neglect is nothing. Be that animal’s voice and get it out of its abusive situation immediately. If you have to make multiple reports, do it.
When filing a complaint it is important to file the complaint with the correct agency.
According to the National Institute of Health an animal hoarder is defined as someone who has accumulated a large number of animals and who:
1) fails to provide minimal standards of nutrition, sanitation, and veterinary care;
2) fails to act on the deteriorating condition of the animals (including disease, starvation or death) and the environment (severe overcrowding, extremely unsanitary conditions); and often,
3) is unaware of the negative effects of the collection on their own health and well-being and on that of other family members
