Nebraska legislature considering bill to regulate puppy mills

A bill is working its way through the Nebraska legislature, one that could improve the lives of dogs housed in mass-breeding facilities.

KETV out of Omaha reports – “” The measure requires dogs be seen by a vet every three years, including dental care, regulates proper housing with solid or approved flooring and limits how often a female can be bred and how old the dog can be. “”

Not perfect, but certainly a step in the right direction. But I wish the deadline for meeting the standards in the bill came before 2016.

There is reportedly a fear that with stiffer regulations now on the books in Missouri, puppy millers will try to move out, some at least to Nebraska. I’m hoping against hope that so many states enact strongĀ  legislature against puppy-mill breeding that the remaining states are shamed into improving legislation within their borders.
