A public hearing scheduled for Tuesday night in the town of Barrington on an application filed by two residents that planned to open a puppy-selling business was cancelled.
We learned Tuesday afternoon that father and son John and Wayne Sensenig withdrew their applications to breed and sell puppies from their Porters Corners Road property after public outrage over what many felt would essentially be a puppy mill. John Sensening filed an application with the town to sell as many as 5-HUNDRED puppies a year from their family farm, which would include up to 75 breeding dogs On the application he made sure to include, “No breeding, no kennels.”
Concerned residents learned Sensenig recently pleaded guilty to two counts of animal cruelty in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. Those same residents had started and signed an online petition against the project and hired an attorney from New York City.
