Governor Signs Puppy Mill Legislation

posted May 7th, 2010 by

Governor Brad Henry signed the puppy mill bill into law Thursday!   A big step in the right direction for doing right by the puppies!   High volume breeding operations will now be regulated in Oklahoma, and for those legitimate hobby breeders the bill does not mean that much — it will target those operating in substandard conditions.   Thank you Governor Henry and for all those who worked so hard for years to get regulations passed for the breeding of Oklahoma’s companion animals!
