PA Puppy Mill Law (HB 2525) on the floor- needs Republicans support

Posted by smallspark on July 1, 2008

If you saw the OPRAH show, or the TV show 30 days, seeing the puppy mill mommies lives probably affected you, and not in a good way. But I hope in a way that means taking a small, fairly painless action. A moment to follow your heart, give hope and show respect to life.

All it is is a phone call or an email to your PA state rep. Please help better a puppy mill dogs life.

Right now puppy mill dogs are considered livestock and their lives are beyond miserable.
For more specific info, and to know exactly who to call, please go to the ASPCA website link below.


Short background on PA HB 2525

If you’ve seen the Oprah show on this subject, maybe you understand how important, though minor, this law will improve daily life for those constantly pregnant animals forced to live their ENTIRE life in an open, small, wire-floored cage outside with no vet care. The endless rounds of puppies go to stores while Mama truly, endlessly suffers 24/7 until she can bear no more puppies. Then she is killed.

“Among other essential changes, this bill would double the cage space required for dogs, mandate regular veterinary care, prohibit the stacking of cages, ban wire cage flooring and require that dogs have continuous access to clean water.”

“Passage of HB 2525 is vital if Pennsylvania is to improve conditions for dogs kept in commercial kennels and put an end to the state’s reputation as the “Puppy Mill Capital of the East.”

Please call!
All the Democrats are for it and Only 1 Republican is for it. Basic standard of care and a humane standard of living should not be a party line vote. If you take the responsibility of having animals, then that means also the responsibility of taking care of it. Breeders need to take care of their animals just as you and I are required to.

PLEASE take 10 minutes to email or call your reps.

If your republican rep won’t vote for it b.c a democrat proposed the bill…please clearly and respectfully tell them why they should.

    We have been in constant touch with our Republican representative who says he will vote in favor of the bill, I hope he keeps his word

  2. I want to do anything to stop this inhumane treatment of our best friends; and, I would like to see these people prosecuted.
