Vermont: Support Legislation to Curb Irresponsible Pet Breeding

Vermont: Support Legislation to Curb Irresponsible Pet Breeding

Vermont's laws regulating commercial dog breeders are ambiguous and make substandard animal husbandry practices nearly impossible to identify and correct. H. 50, An Act Relating to the Sale, Transfer or Importation of Pets, provides clear definitions and animal husbandry standards for both breeders and enforcement officials to protect breeding dogs from inhumane, unsanitary conditions and help ensure that the puppies they produce for sale are healthy.

TAKE ACTION
Please make a brief, polite phone call to your state senator to urge support for H. 50. Look up your senator's phone number here. You can say: "I am a constituent and I am calling to ask that you please help pass H. 50. Animal welfare is important to me."

After making your phone call (please do not skip that crucial step!), fill in and submit the form below to automatically send a follow-up message to your state senator. Legislators receive a lot of email, so be sure to edit your message so it stands out.

Dear Senator,

When large-scale pet breeding happens behind closed doors, it can be nearly impossible to regulate activities that could impact not only animal welfare, but consumer protection as well. By providing clear definitions and animal husbandry standards for both commercial breeders and inspectors, these concerns can be mitigated and often eliminated.



Sincerely,
