If you live in Missouri, or you know anyone who does, get out the YES vote on Election Day for Proposition B, the Puppy Mill Cruelty Prevention Act. Voting YES will stop puppy mill cruelty in this state!

According to the ASPCA, the Humane Society, and other animal welfare groups, Proposition B will stop puppy mill abuses by setting common sense standards for the proper care of dogs.

Thousands of suffering dogs will get a better life and will not be subjected to the horrors of puppy mills throughout the state.

At puppy mills in Missouri, dogs are crammed into small and filthy cages, denied veterinary care, exposed to extremes of heat and cold, and given no exercise or human affection. These puppy mills are cruel, and the way these dogs are treated is wrong.

If passed, the Act will vastly improve the lives of dogs in Missouri‚Äôs commercial breeding operations by limiting the number of breeding dogs to 50 per facility, and requiring basic elements of humane care–including clean water, regular exercise, and adequate rest for female dogs between litters.

Although the Puppy Mill Cruelty Prevention Act would be a state law, its passage will have far-reaching implications around the country.

So, get out the vote and save the puppies!

    You would be surprised how many dog-oriented businesses are opposed to the resolution. As I was leaving the vet’s office the other day, I saw a “Vote NO on Prop. B” sign. A number of organizations are against it, and I can’t figure it out. Why would people vote against a law that requires that breeders provide food, water, space, and exercise? Here’s the URL for the text of Proposition B:
