Nebraska: Don’t let puppy mills write your laws!

Nebraska: Don’t let puppy mills write your laws!

As you may know, most puppies sold in pet stores come from puppy mills, cruel breeding facilities that prioritize profit over the health and well-being of animals. Dogs in these operations are often kept in overcrowded and unsanitary conditions without adequate veterinary care, food, water or socialization.

To date, nearly 300 localities across the nation—as well as two whole states (CA and MD)—have enacted laws to keep cruelly bred puppies out of their pet stores. These local level bans are crucial to reducing the demand for cruelly sourced pets.

The Nebraska Agriculture Committee will soon consider Legislative Bill 382, which would strip local governments in your state of their authority to ban the sale of cruelly bred dogs in their pet stores and roll back the progress we’ve made toward minimizing puppy mill cruelty in Nebraska. Help us oppose this harmful bill!
