Minnesota is among the top producers of puppies and kittens in the United States, with some of the largest puppy and kitten mills in the nation. Learn more about the issue here.
The State of Minnesota does not license or regulate this multi-million dollar industry. Due to this lack of oversight, unscrupulous breeders exploit dogs, cats, puppies, and kittens for profit creating harm and suffering to animals.
I believe animals, like people, deserve to be treated humanely. I believe we, as a state, must show others that Minnesota will not tolerate animal cruelty in any form.
Please support dog and cat breeder regulation that will license and regulate the dog and cat breeding industry and require breeders to act more responsibly. Thank you.
