Local Governments Telling Puppy Mills to Take Their Business Elsewhere

By on April 24, 2014

I’ve mentioned before that self-regulation has not worked in many sectors of the animal economy – not in factory farming, not in the “Big Lick” segment of the Tennessee Walking Horse show world, and certainly not in the puppy mill industry.  In today’s video blog, I address the rapid spread of local ordinances, including the latest gains in the city of Chicago and also in Cook County, Ill., restricting pet stores from selling puppy mill dogs – all a consequence of the industry having failed to develop and implement a strong set of minimum care standards.
