New Ohio rules on puppy mills call for roomy cages

Published: Tue, June 11, 2013 @ 1:27 p.m.

COLUMBUS (AP) — A new set of regulations meant to crack down on high-volume dog breeding operations in Ohio would ensure the animals live in spacious, clean cages, receive veterinary care and are transported in safe enclosures.

The guidelines drafted by the Ohio Department of Agriculture are being reviewed by a regulatory panel.

The proposals bolster the treatment standards of animals housed in the large-scale establishments, puppy mills by their critics.

The rules would force the facilities to get a state license and also require employees to position dog cages to protect animals from being soiled by feces or urine from cages above them.

Under the proposed regulations, animals must be transported in sturdy cages that allow the dogs to turn normally and lie comfortably.

Now if they can outlaw breeding brother/sister, mother/son, father/daughter, and having litter after litter after litter as soon as the female can get pregnant, they may have something.
Like a small cage was the only problem.
These places should be put out of business.

@123goz: Great comment!
Dept of Agriculture did not go far enough by just putting a band-aid on this problem. For how many more years do we have to wait for a solution? Shut these places down now!
