New Rules
Wisconsin fights status as “magnet” for puppy mills.

A bill currently in committee could change Wisconsin’s status as a state with almost no oversight of breeding operations. As usual, it’s a compromise--establishing standards of care, such as providing each dog with enough food, shelter and opportunity for exercise, for breeding operations with 25 or more dogs. It also requires a veterinarian’s certificate of health be provided to buyers and establishes fines and jail time for violators.

Read a recent blog post on puppy mill legislation around the country (as of August 2009).
