A victory for puppy-mill dogs in Missouri

Puppy mill opponents in Missouri passed a ballot initiative requiring “large-scale dog breeding operations” to provide exercise, food, clean water, rest, and recreation for the animals in their care.

For those who don’t know, Divinity spent the first nine years of her life in a puppy-mill in Missouri.

“Nearly 1 million Missouri voters sent a powerful message through the ballot box to shed the stigma of being the puppy mill capital of the country by approving Proposition B, a statewide ballot initiative to establish basic standards for the care of dogs in large-scale commercial breeding facilities. Missouri is home to an estimated 3,000 puppy mills breeding hundreds of thousands of puppies, far more than any other state in the country.”
