All states should ban puppy mills completely. I live in Missouri ("The Puppy Mill State"). Our governor passed a measure (another "Missouri Compromise"). It has brought some improvements. He would not have been successful in banning puppy mills outright, because of the heavy influence of the "Freedom to Farm" contingent. So we still have blood money breeders, but standards have improved.

Hello and Thank you for Supporting and caring for Animals who Can Speak if only people would Just Listen and watch, but there IS something that bothers me about this "bill", why should they even be ALLOWED 60 dogs and SO many litters? Really, does Anyone THINK people who PIMP OUT Defenseless, Helpless Animals FOR MONEY won't Lie or get Rid of number 60 or Hide them? ALL Puppy Mills NEED SHUT DOWN, there are Not enough AGENTS to Inspect these HORROR MILLS and there are over 10,000! Yet even HSUS published the Worst 100 based on Numerous repeated Violations, yet they are STILL Allowed to BE IN BUSINESS? Why?? There are MILLIONS of Animals, Dogs, Cats, Puppies and Kittens Murdered, Every single Year, EVERY SINGLE DAY! They are NOT even Correctly Counted in Death, Let alone LIFE, there are over 20,000 cities, towns and municipalities, and over 3144 Counties in the US and yet there are ONLY 3500 shelters? So...many die who are Never counted! Real Numbers of HEALTHY Animals Killed just for the Lack of a home, a family, space, money or food..Numbers are probably closer to a half a Million a Month! Year after Year, and yet MAJOR Assoc's, Org's, and "Societies" have Collected Billions of Dollars and after a Half of a CENTURY they cannot YET Protect or END this Insane CYCLE of Born to Die? With 10,000 "mills" how many are born or Left to die Every year, Besides the Millions THAT ARE KILLED Every year? What makes ANY sense to continue this again for another HALF of a Century? I remember seeing these Very Sad and Horrific Treatment of Animals..Commercials?? as a child, and this has Never left me, why hasn't it Changed? MONEY...All about MONEY and Greed...and Still it continues. NO MORE LEGAL MILLS, NO MORE ILLEGAL..OR Breeding PERIOD! We and THEY NEED A Massive Spay and Neuter Campaign...NOW not Later, these animals have NO MORE LATER. For them...Later is Never.
