Chris Brown’s Dog-Breeding Venture Lands Him In Hot Water With PETA
Chris Brown is being criticized for his actions yet again. This time, he is not under fire for beating women, but for breeding dogs. Yes, you read that right.
The 22 year old singer’s mother, Joyce Hawkins, tweeted a link to the CB Breeds website, featuring seven adorable American Pit Bull puppies for sale. The price? $1,000, shipping/delivery not included. The site also features a picture of one of the adorable puppies with Brown.
Several animal welfare organizations, including PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) immediately rained hell down on the singer, condemning Brown’s side business. In a statement to E! News, PETA said:
“There is no such thing as a responsible breeder while wonderful dogs are being put down in animal shelters across the country for lack of a good home. This is a moneymaking scheme, and Brown will count the suckers who fall for it as he counts the money on the way to the bank…Shelters will count the bodies in the barrel.”
The Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals also fired back at Chris Brown for what they call “backyard breeding.” SpcaLA president Madeline Bernstein stated that:
“There is no reason to breed and produce more pit bull puppies when there are pit puppies waiting for homes in every shelter in America. Furthermore, as some of these dogs suffer from and are victims of their owner’s misuse, they can be even harder to place.”
A representative for the singer, Maureen O’Connor, denied that Brown is actually breeding the puppies. Instead, he claims that the litter of adorable pits is the result of two of his family’s dogs, and they just want to send them to goo homes. The rep states, “He loves animals, especially dogs.”
