Puppy Mill Bill

An act allowing federal oversight of puppy mills has been reintroduced in Congress.

Earlier this week, the Puppy Uniform Protection and Safety (PUPS) Act was reintroduced in Congress. The bill, sponsored by Reps. Jim Gerlach, Sam Farr, Bill Young, and Lois Capps, would require daily exercise for breeding dogs and require that breeders who sell puppies online and in-person be subject to licensing and regulation under the Animal Welfare Act. “[This bill] is aimed at protecting dogs and making individuals motivated by profit rather than the fair and humane treatment of dogs accountable,” says Gerlach. Dogs in puppy mills often spend their lives in cramped conditions with little exercise or socialization.
