Wire cages suspended on the sides of a structure that looked like a poultry building.

        I ventured to another area, which at first I thought was a poultry building. There were wire cages suspended out the sides of the structure and stainless steel catch pans beneath. The cages were in rows, 2 high, with doors to the interior….. all were off the ground. Moving closer, I saw the pups, and realized, "This is another kennel!"

As of 27 September 2011, Silver Lining Kennel and Pic-A-Pet Plus pet stores now also hold Wisconsin license number 268586-DS and have upgraded to become compliant with the minimum Standards of Care specified by Act 90/s.173.41 - WI Dog Sellers Program. These photos and commentary are from June 2008, prior to the passage of Wisconsin Act 90/s.173.41, when Silver Linings was regulated only by the USDA.
