Thank you MO!
I thank you and the fur babies thank you. This has been a pet issue (no pun intended) with me. I don't live in MO so who's going to pay attention to someone who can't vote. You guys did it and I love ya's. :grouphug:

"Limits on dog breeding in Missouri races to the winning vote"

The Stars Jefferson City correspondent

With 97.2 percent of precincts reporting, 51 percent of voters said yes on Proposition B, the so-called Puppy Mill Cruelty Prevention Act, to secure its passage. The measure will limit the number of breeding dogs allowed in a breeding operation, increase space requirements for animal enclosures and expand requirements for veterinary care.

It also creates criminal penalties for violating existing standards of care for breeding dogs. It goes into effect next November.

Dog breeding is a major agricultural industry in Missouri, with more than 1,400 licensed breeders operating the most of any state.

But Missouri also has a reputation for being the puppy-mill capital of the country, an epithet backed up by decades of evidence of animal mistreatment and miserable conditions at some breeding operations."
