Please, sign the petition below in support of the humane treatment of dogs and cats in breeding facilities. By signing the form below, you are giving us permission to email you with news and updates about animal cruelty and protection issues in Minnesota.



Minnesota is among the top producers of puppies in the United States, with some of the largest breeding kennels in the nation. Kittens are also mass-produced in Minnesota.

Extensive research and documentation have shown that some dog and cat breeders (and dealers) cut corners in their operations, creating substandard or deplorable conditions that harm animals, consumers and the community.

I believe dogs and cats deserve to be treated humanely. I believe consumers must be protected from being sold unhealthy puppies and kittens. I believe dog and cat breeders should act responsibly and, like any other business, follow high standards of conduct.

I support proper oversight by federal, state and local authorities of breeders and brokers and I support the enforcement of law to ensure the well-being of these animals.
