Missouri AG wants to stop puppy mills

Doggy

Fun Fact: Not only is Missouri a hotspot for meth labs, we're also considered Ground Zero for puppy mills. (Puppy mills are large-scale breeding operations where puppies are produced with little or no regard for the animals' health.) Yesterday, Missouri AG Chris Koster promised new prosecution against breeders who fail to get licenses and follow the state's standards.

The project, which includes the state's ag department, got started back in February. (It's officially called "Operation Bark Alert.")

Here's a form to report breeders who aren't following the law.
And a release from the AG's office.
