Federal: Puppy Mill Reform Proposed

Name: Puppy Uniform Protection and Safety Act
Number: HR 847 and S 395

This bill would close a loophole in the current law by requiring licensing (and therefore oversight) of anyone who sells or offers for sale 50 or more of the offspring from breeding female dogs for use as pets in any 1-year period. This includes sales through the Internet, telephone, and newspaper. The licensing requirements include standards of care for caging and exercise that would apply to any large puppy mill operation. Passage of this bill will require breeders in all states to apply more humane standards to the animals they raise and sell.
