New Law in Ohio Cracks Down on Inhumane Puppy Mill Practices

Paws Up!

To Ohio Governor John Kasich for passing new law to combat puppy mills.

According to a recent news article, Ohio Gov. John Kasich has signed a new bill into law to improve living conditions for dogs in large breeding facilities. The new law makes it illegal for breeders to stack cages. Likewise, it will be unlawful for breeders to house animals in cages with a wire floor. Dogs will also be legally entitled to more daily activity, socialization, and improved shelter.

Take action. Ohio residents, contact Governor Kasich and thank him for signing legislation to prevent cruelty to animals in breeding facilities. Feel free to use NHES’ sample action letter when composing your correspondence.

Dear Gov. Kasich,

I am writing to thank you for passing legislation to better ensure the health and comfort of dogs and puppies in breeding operations. Large-scale commercial breeders and backyard breeders, collectively referred to as “puppy mills,” house dogs in unsanitary living conditions that exhibit a gross lack of care. Breeding dogs and puppies are not afforded socialization, exercise, or basic veterinary care. When the puppies are eventually sold to consumers at a high mark-up, health problems caused by their lack of responsible breeding may quickly become evident to their owners. Passing this legislation to keep puppy mills out of Ohio is a huge accomplishment for anyone who loves animals.

With great appreciation,

    Governor Kasich,
    Thank you for caring about the lives of all and specifically signing into law a bill which will improve lives of animals in large breeding situations. Our communities’ humane society strongly believes Mahatma Gandhi’s saying…
    My husband and I follow you and are encouraged by your efforts to stop the division and hate and work together for the greater good.

  4. Thanks for making life better for dogs in puppy mills. Now please work on eliminating puppy mills. That would be the ultimate winner.

    Thank you, Governor Kasich, for your compassion for dogs in puppy mills and other breeding facilities that are cruel and unhealthy for dogs. The bill you signed into law was badly needed for the health and welfare of dogs.

    Thank you for moving animal care in the right direction! Those of us who care about animals welfare think they should have safe and sanitary living conditions as well as access to healthcare.

    Even though I don’t live in your state, you are hopefully sending a message to the lawmakers in other states to enact this very important law.
    Thank you so much for caring for the plight of so many innocent animals!!!

  8. Thank you for taking this matter into your legislation and making it law. On behalf of all of the dogs – house dogs, the breeding and puppies that need your protection, thank you very much!! Deep appreciation not only to you but to your colleagues in the legislature.
