Help Stop Puppy Mills – Sign the Petition
North Carolina is a puppy mill state. North Carolina had more puppy mill busts in both 2011 and 2012 than any other state. Why is this happening? It’s easy for puppy mills to do business in North Carolina because the state’s lack of regulations. In order to shut down puppy mills, we must wait for conditions to be so bad that dogs are suffering and near death.
North Carolina needs a law to regulate commercial dog breeders by imposing simple standards for the care and maintenance of dogs — to prevent neglect and mistreatment rather than waiting until animal cruelty laws are broken and dogs have to be seized. Adding commercial breeders to the standards already in place for our animal shelters, boarding kennels, and pet stores is the right thing to do for the dogs in North Carolina. These rules, enforced by the Department of Agriculture’s Animal Welfare Section, would not impact responsible breeders because they are already providing veterinary care, healthy food, and comfortable housing.
The dogs in North Carolina need your help. Please sign the petition to stop puppy mills by filling out and submitting your information below.
