Hawaii to join the anti-puppy mill campaign?

The Hawaii might become the latest state to enact anti-puppy mill regulations. An article on Change.org indicates the state does not currently regulate large-scale breeders.

A bit of undercover work in June 2010 exposed a breeder in Hawaii, where sick and injured dogs were caged 24/7. Change.org notes the breeder’s response was – “What’s the big deal?

House Bill 1621 would establish licensing for large breeders and limit the number of breeding animals to 50 at each facility. In addition, the bill sets limits on the number of times a female can breed, sets  minimum standards of care (outdoor access and veterinary care) and would allow law enforcement access for inspections.

Once again, we can predict that breeding organizations will oppose this bill. They will cry that it is horrible that the state wants to allow dogs access to the outside. They will cry that allowing females rest between breeding cycles is all wrong and how dare we see horrors and want to end them.
