WHO IS J.A.K.S PUPPIES INC?
J.A.K.S Puppies Inc. is a USDA dealer/broker out of Britt, IA owned by Jolyn Noethe.
WHAT IS A USDA DEALER/BROKER?
"A Class B licensee is a dealer or broker whose business includes the purchase and/or resale of any dog or
other regulated animal. This includes brokers and auction operators because they negotiate or arrange the
purchase, sale or commercial transport of dogs"
USDA Retail Pet Store Regulation
Hobo K9 "Rescue" and J.A.K.S Puppies Inc. have the same address and are both run by Jolyn Noethe. Isn't it unusual that a large scale USDA broker/dealer, would also run a 501c3 rescue?
USDA breeders (puppy mills) and USDA dealers/brokers cannot sell puppies to all pet stores as some cities/entire states have bans in place to prohibit the sale of dogs and cats in pet stores. J.A.K.S Puppies Inc. out of Iowa along with Lonewolf Kennels out of Missouri found a way to still get their puppy mill dogs into pet stores.
Start up a "nonprofit rescue"!
What does this have to do with Puppyland?
CAPS (Companion Animal Protection Society) investigated Hobo K9 in May 2018.
CAPS Hobo K9 Investigation
CAPS shows multiple puppy mills that supply JAKS. Two of those puppy mills are Purple Heart Kennel (run by Wendie & Doug Dettbarn) and Prairie Lane Kennel (run by Dennis & Donna Van Wyk)
Interesting enough, those two puppy mills also supplied Broadway Puppies, where Kayla Kerr worked prior to coming to Washington.
Why wouldn't Puppyland source from the same puppy mills they have used in the past? Especially when they can hide it by getting their dogs from "USDA breeders without any direct violations in the past 2 years".
The truth is, Puppyland in Puyallup is getting their dogs from a USDA broker. Not just any USDA broker. A USDA broker known to buy puppies from puppy mills.
