Prop B Passed in Missouri!

Missouri's weak laws regulating commercial kennels had made the state a haven for substandard breeders, aka puppy mills.  Missouri is home to 1/3 of commercial dog-breeding facilities in the US and provides more than 40% of all puppies sold in pet stores through out the country.

Prop B (also known as the Puppy Mill Cruelty Prevention Act) was a citizen supported initiative. It will provide relief to tens of thousands of adult breeding dogs not to mention the approximately 1,000,000 puppies born in Missouri kennels each year.  This is a huge victory and hope that other states will follow suit.
