Please support the MN Dog and Cat Breeder Bill: S.F. 36/H.F. 84

The Goal of Breeder Regulation: Healthy and Safe Dogs and Cats

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.

The State of Minnesota does not license, inspect or regulate the dog and cat breeding industry. Due to this lack of oversight, certain breeders cut corners in their operations, creating substandard or deplorable breeding conditions that harm animals.

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 S.F. 36/H.F. 84, which will license, inspect and regulate commercial dog and cat breeders in Minnesota.
