As a supporter of Animal Humane Society you have helped us to do great things for animals in Minnesota. Your support has enabled our humane agents to rescue dogs and cats from inhumane breeding facilities — better known as puppy mills. Now, we need your voice for the countless animals who are still suffering.
Animal Humane Society is part of a large coalition of Minnesota animal welfare organizations, veterinarians and community members that have been working to ensure the health and safety of dogs and cats in Minnesota. We’re currently working to pass a state law that will require licensing and inspection of commercial dog and cat breeding operations. Currently, no such legislation exists. Regulation of the commercial dog and cat breeding industry in Minnesota is crucial to helping stop the abuse and neglect before it starts.
This past week, the Dog and Cat Breeder Regulation Bill (S.F. 462/H.F. 702) was introduced at the Minnesota State Legislature by Senator Barb Goodwin and Representative John Lesch. We hope that you can continue to be a voice for animals by extending your support to the bill.
