A Morgan County dog breeder is being sued by Attorney General Chris Koster and the state Department of Agriculture. Lisa Oldendorf of Barnett, owner of Oldendorf Boxer, a commercial breeding facility Koster says is operating without a license, is charged with numerous violations of Missouri’s Animal Care Facilities Act and Canine Cruelty Prevention Act.
The lawsuit alleges that Oldendorf:
failed to provide an adequate waste disposal and drainage system in the sheltered kennel building;
failed to identify her dogs or keep records of their identification;
failed to maintain an effective program for the control of insects and rodents;
allowed the ambient air temperature to fall below 45 degrees; and
failed to keep the concrete floors in the indoor and outdoor portion of the sheltered facility impervious to moisture.;
A hearing has been scheduled for next Thursday, May 17th, in Morgan County Circuit Court.
