After Protests, Millville Kennel's Dogs Are Safe from Cold Weather

Last Edited:

In response to numerous complaints, officials with the Millville Police Department say a local dog breeder is now compliant with new cold weather sheltering requirements for her dogs.

Last week, a group of protesters stood outside the Cedar Street Kennel, complaining that the kennel's dogs were not kept in safe cold-weather conditions.

Animal Control officers from the Millville Police Department as well as humane law enforcement officers from the Cumberland County Prosecutor's Office inspected the property and found that the dog's shelters were not in compliance with current requirements.

Police say that the owner was eager to make the corrections and as of Monday, February 4th, an inspection of the property shows that the kennel is now in compliance with cold-weather shelter regulations.

The owner, Laura Van Embden says in a press release that as the first registered kennel in Millville, Van-M Collies has "operated for decades building an enduring legacy of healthy, happy and beautiful collies of the highest quality and genetic makeup."
