MICHIGAN RESIDENTS: Your voice is needed TODAY! The puppy mill industry is attempting to pass House Bill 5917 in Michigan to prevent cities and towns from banning retail sales of pets. Currently, a municipality may choose not to support the puppy mill industry. We need it to stay that way!
If enacted, House Bill 5917 will prohibit Michigan cities and counties from passing ordinances that prevent inhumanely bred puppies and kittens from being sold in pet stores, and will overturn all existing retail pet sales ordinances throughout the state. As a result, puppy mills will continue to flourish, and consumers will be deprived of their right to know where the animals sold in pet shops really come from.
