The Legislators of the 10th District, Senator Jim Holzapfel and Assemblymen Dave Wolfe and Greg McGuckin have introduced the “Healthy Puppies and Kittens Assurance Act” which establishes requirements and places strict regulations on pet stores who sell animals from puppy and kitten mill breeders.

“By requiring registration of breeders, providing purchasers with information about their future pet and imposing heavy penalties on violators, individuals and pet shops will be encouraged to purchase their cat or dog from a reputable breeder,” said Senator Holzapfel. “This would eliminate the market for selling cats or dogs from puppy mills with poor and unhealthy conditions.”
