Missouri Puppy Mills: Dog Kennels Closing
According to the Missouri Alliance for Animal Legislation, more than 500 commercial dog breeding kennels have closed up shop since January 2009. Surely it's not a coincidence that is when animal welfare groups first launched a statewide ballot campaign (MO Prop B) to clean up the dog breeding industry in Missouri. It is expected that such a decrease in the number of licensed facilities will mean increased inspections for the breeders who have stayed in business.
