De Kalb County District Attorney Michael O'Dell
300 Grand Avenue SW, Suite 505
Ft. Payne, AL 35967
Dear Mr. O'Dell,
I strongly encourage the De Kalb County District Attorney's office to
thoroughly investigate and seek fraud and theft charges against Barbara Bach, a puppy
dealer who allegedly sells sick animals to unwitting buyers over the internet.
The Humane Society of the United States and other animal advocacy
organizations have received multiple complaints about Bach. She not only defrauds
consumers, but also victimizes animals. The local SPCA is already investigating Bach
for assorted animal cruelty complaints.
Bach's "inventory" is undoubtedly the product of puppy mills, where animals
live tethered outdoors or stuffed into small enclosure and forced to stand in
their own waste. Prematurely weaned puppies spend their initial weeks of life
without mothers or nurturing interaction with humans. Those who pull through
are later plagued with hip dysplasia, dislocating kneecaps, seizures, eye
lesions, liver and heart disease, or other afflictions associated with shoddy
Marketing sick dogs over the internet is unethical and cruel. In addition,
Bach may be in violation of Alabama's Theft of Property Law at 13A-8-2 and
Unlawful Trade Practices at 8-19-5. Please help to protect animals and the public
who care about them.
