USDA Seeks to Enforce Licensing for Puppy Mills

The USDA proposes the licensing and inspection of all commercial facilities that breed and sell puppies. 
The proposal is designed to close a loophole in the Animal Welfare Act that has allowed commercial puppy mills to operate unregulated and deny basic, humane care to the dogs they breed and sell. 
As with all proposed regulations, there is a open period for public comments: that period ends on Aug. 15th. 
If you are a U.S. citizen and this is an issue that matters to you, please show your support by filling out this form-- it only takes a minute.
Thank you!
