Press Release: Pet Protection Bill Deserves Support

AB 536 is a Common Sense Solution to Prevent Suffering

       A bill (AB 536) to prevent abuse and neglect of animals by sleazy breeders is currently stuck in a state legislative committee, just like unloved animals are stuck in dirty cages filled to the brim at puppy mills around the state. If this bill is killed many animals will suffer and die too. A new law to guarantee minimum standards of humane care is desperately needed.

       On a daily basis, animals that were originally obtained from puppy mills and other unscrupulous breeders are surrendered to [shelters, humane societies, and animal rescues] because they are sick, aggressive or behave badly. These animals have been treated poorly since birth.

       Puppy mill pets don't received proper care, love or nutrition. They are abused and neglected, solely to profit the breeder or pet store they are sold at.

       Sick pets are also a consumer protection problem. People often end up paying hundreds or thousands of dollars in veterinary bills to (hopefully) cure a puppy mill pet.

       [Shelters, rescues and other animal welfare organizations] will also have to comply with AB 536, if passed, and we are happy to do so. We already provide care and treatment for animals far above the minimum standards set forth in the legislation, and there is no reason others cannot do so as well.

       AB 536 will protect animals everywhere, and also help consumers and pet lovers alike. It is a common sense solution to prevent companion animal suffering in Wisconsin.
