Urge Hawaii to Regulate Puppy Mills

This petition had 420 supporters

Senate Bill 1522 would put in place new regulations to deal with the problem of puppy mills in Paradise. As the proposed bill itself states, "The legislature finds that Hawaii does not currently regulate the large scale breeding of dogs and that this lack of regulation often results in the breeding of dogs in a cruel and inhumane manner. The large scale breeding of dogs is often conducted under conditions that inflict long-term suffering on the dogs and may also lead to the sale of unhealthy dogs to unsuspecting consumers." Therefore, "it is necessary to regulate large scale dog breeding operations and facilities in order to prevent cruel treatment of the dogs and protect the public."

SB 1522 would mandate licensing of large scale breeders. It would cap the total number of breeding animals at 50, limit the number of times a female can be bred and set minimum standards of care, such as indoor/outdoor access and annual veterinary care. It would also provide law enforcement the access they need to inspect commercial breeding operations.

Take a stand against puppy mills in Hawaii. Send a letter to Hawaii lawmakers urging them to pass SB 1522.
