Abigail, My puppy mill puppy

Missouri is my home state. It is shocking and disgusting to me that it is also one of the largest puppy mill producing states in the Union. It hurts my heart to even think about it because as you know, my love Abigail came from one of them. We didn’t know that at the time, but it makes no difference. We rescued her but we didn’t do anything to shut them down. It must be done!

The ASPCA is in St. Clair County, Missouri. They are removing 34 dogs from another puppy mill. It marks the third time in one week that the ASPCA has been contacted to help transfer dogs and puppies from Missouri puppy mills, as well as private residences, were owners did not care for the animals properly.

Here is what Tim Rickey, The ASPCA’s Senior Director has to say:

“These incidents reinforce the need for Missourians to vote ‘yes’ on Proposition B,” says Tim Rickey, the ASPCA’s Senior Director of Field Investigations and Response. Also known as the Puppy Mill Cruelty Prevention Act, Prop B aims to raise the standards of care for dogs in Missouri’s more than 3,000 commercial breeding facilities, which export more than 40 percent of all dogs sold in pet stores nationwide. If passed, Prop B would require Missouri’s large-scale breeders to limit the number of breeding females to 50, as well as enact common-sense standards such as requiring dogs to be provided with sufficient food and clean water, regular veterinary care, adequate housing and space, and access to regular exercise.

You must vote for these changes and improvements in dogs and puppies lives. They deserve it and didn’t ask for abuse. Please go to this link to learn more. ASPCA in Missouri.
