Puppy Protection Bill introduced in ColoradoPosted: February 5, 2009
Another serious post., a mix of correspondence received in the past several days. Again, no graphics. At least it’s colorful as I try to acknowledge each person’s input. It’s important to hobby breeders and ‘trickling down’, important to purebred dog owners. Please educate yourself and use your voice in our democracy!
Slowly, slowly, around the country hobby breeders continue to lose rights. Colorado Representative McCann has introduce a bill to Colorado’s legislature. And Lawmakers Trying To Eliminate Puppy Mills.
Re: aforementioned Dog Bill …isn’t this just more tampering by the
govt. into responsible/caring breeders’ lives and is it a forerunner
to the CA law that wanted all dogs/cats to be neutered or have special
permits?? Puppy mills are horrible but I thought they were subject to
the laws enforced by the Humane Society?
As you may or may not be aware, CO House of Representative Members Randy Fisher and Elizabeth McCann have sponsored a bill that would limit the amount of dogs one could keep and breed. While the number — 25 — doesn’t affect most of us, once this legislation is passed, it can be modified with no further input from the state’s constituents.
As representative to CFDC for the Lhasa Apso Club of Central Colorado, I received this:
The Colorado Federation of Dog Clubs wants you to be aware of a bill going through the Colorado House. We are very much against it. Find out why….
More food for thought… Vickie points out Lhasa Apsos are on the Decline a whopping 80% in the past decade, according to AKC.
As Faye points out, Canada isn’t immune either!
