Your rural vets get profit from breeders and supporting farmers via their livestock. One agriculture group in particular in Missouri has gone around giving talks against our dog agencies that stand up against puppy mills. They do not want government involved in their livelihood and thus have scared small rural towns to vote down Prop B. Also Prop B is being considered to be repealed. The repeal process is being considered by state representatives and senators who are on the agriculture committee, (under which puppy mills fall in category) whom some of these legislators belong to this ag business destroying Prop B. Don't you think these members of our state legislature would be a little bias? Do some of these representatives and senators get campaign contributions to keep them in office from this one particular agricultural business? Have any of these legislators been on the board of this particular ag business? When a legislator can be told in hearings that some of these puppy mill breeders are even doing their own hands'on C-sections and the representative from that district says, "Our people voted it down, we need jobs" is pretty one sided. My dog is a puppy mill breeder dog who was totally unsocialable turned into a rescue group who lived 7 years in a cage probably half of his life. I have seen the scars and cruelty. Prop B would have passed with higher numbers in rural areas if it were not for that ag business scaring the hell out of Missourians! Get involved and fight this cruelty.
