Puppy Mill Law in Question

Lawmakers in Missouri plan to overhaul a recently implemented law to improving puppy mill conditions due to costs.

“Missouri’s Puppy Mill Initiative” passed in November last year, but is now being overhauled by lawmakers who claim that it is too costly. The new rules required breeders own no more than 50 breeding dogs, bring the dogs to yearly veterinary examinations, and give them access to both indoors and outdoors. Now, after breeders argued that the law would shut their business down, a bipartisan group has voted to change many of the law’s provisions. “It suggests to me that this is an industry that wants deregulation. They want to do things that they want and to heck with the people who care about dogs,” says President of the Humane Society of the United States Wayne Pacelle of the situation.
