The Puppy Mill Cruelty Prevention Act (PMCPA) was passed in Missouri in November 2010 in an attempt to put more regulations on puppy mills and their practices. This was a huge success for puppies in Missouri — the state that leads all others in commercial dog breeding.
But in mid-April 2011, legislators voted to reject the bill — and won.
Now it's up to Missouri governor Jay Nixon to either sign or veto the new bill. If he supports the rejection, commercial breeding facilities won't be required to increase the standard of living for the puppies. They won't have to take care in providing acceptable cages, allowing time each day to play outside, or making sure the dogs aren't breeding too often.
This could mean disaster and even death for thousands of puppies. Speak out for the puppies and sign the petition asking Governor Nixon to veto the rejection of PMCPA.
Dear Governor Nixon,
In light of recent events, I am gravely concerned about the fate of puppies who live in commercial breeding facilities in the state of Missouri.
Back in November, Missouri voters passed the Puppy Mill Cruelty Prevention Act (PMCPA) — a bill which would require commercial breeders to increase their standards with regards to caging, breeding frequency, and overall quality of life. This piece of legislation would make great strides toward improving the lives of dogs who reside within these facilities.
But in mid-April 2011, Missouri representatives passed a bill that would completely strike down PMCPA. In fact, if the new bill is passed, standards within puppy mills will surely decrease.
Now it's up to you to decide the fate of these puppies. If you sign the new legislation, you will demonstrate that you are totally unconcerned with animal welfare.
Please veto this new bill and stand up for the puppies.
Thank you for your time.
