The Puppy Mill Bill will end the torture, abuse and brutality against dogs
in puppy mills in Ohio.
Ohio is 2nd only to Missouri for number of puppy
mills (11,000 kennels statewide) and is reported to be the worst
conditions of any state in the US.
With common sense standards, the bill will regulate high volume dog
breeders who house dogs in filthy, inhumane, cramped conditions that
contribute to congenital diseases, high medical bills and behavior issues.
The statewide enforcement authority will conduct bi-annual inspections.
Standards will insure dogs used for breeding in Ohio have medical
attention, clean living environments, exercise and socialization. This
will protect Ohio’s consumers from undue veterinary expenses and
promote public safety by encouraging behaviorally well adjusted puppies.
Ohio law does not protect the public from puppies living in overcrowded,
unsanitary conditions where genetic diseases and stress/behavior issues
from illness, injury and neglect are being sold to an unsuspecting public.
Responsible breeders already exceed standards set forth in the legislation.
We need your help to pass this bill. Please contact your state rep & state
senator to let them know you want this bill for a safe and humane Ohio.
