Texas Humane Legislation Network Calls for Puppy Mill Crackdown
Date:7/10/2009

AUSTIN, Texas, July 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Nearly 500 emaciated, parasite-infested dogs were seized from a puppy mill operating near Bowie, Texas on July 7. The dogs, confined in filthy, overcrowded conditions, were seized just weeks after the commercial breeders' lobby defeated a bill in the Texas Legislature that would have required large-scale dog and cat breeding operations to be licensed by the state and meet at least a minimal level of humane care for the animals they breed.

"Sadly, this is typical of the hundreds of puppy mills that are operating throughout Texas," said Cile Holloway, president of Texas Humane Legislation Network. "The puppy mill bill introduced this past session would have required these mass breeders to clean up these deplorable operations and provide proper care for their animals. As the law stands now, animal cruelty charges are the only recourse and many animals are dead or gravely ill by the time law enforcement officials are able to intervene," she added.

Legislation to regulate commercial breeding operations passed the House of Representatives, but died in committee when it reached the Senate. The bill addressed large-scale breeders only and would have exempted breeders keeping 10 or fewer adult breeding female dogs or cats.

A group that calls itself the "Responsible Pet Owners Alliance," representing breeders, dealers, pet store retailers and related commercial interests, opposed this bill.

The Humane Society of the United States estimates that more than 95 percent of the dogs and cats being sold in pet stores or through online ads come from puppy mills.

Texas Humane Legislation Network encourages everyone to adopt their companion animals from local shelters or rescue groups and to never buy dogs or cats from pet stores or through online ads.
