Baltimore City Paves the Way for Maryland Puppy Mill Legislation

Way to go, Baltimore City!

Animal advocates in Maryland will be working during the 2018 Legislative Session on a statewide bill to require that dogs and cats sold at pet stores to come from animal shelters or rescues. Although the Maryland General Assembly has strengthened Maryland’s laws the past two years regarding commercially-bred dogs sold at pet stores, a majority of pet stores have failed to comply with these new regulations. As a result, there is still a pipeline for dogs who have been subjected to the horrors of puppy mills to flow into Maryland. Sponsored by Delegate Kramer. Details to follow!
