Canine Cruelty Prevention in Missouri

We are happy to announce the launch of the Canine Cruelty Prevention Unit’s web site. Follow this link: http://ago.mo.gov/CanineCruelty/ for access. The site includes a canine cruelty complaint form, where consumers can lodge a complaint against unlicensed breeders or breeders against whom they have animal cruelty or consumer complaints. The Canine Cruelty Prevention Unit will investigate all complaints. Also included is an information chart that explains the revisions to Missouri’s animal welfare laws, as well as a copy of the newly enacted legislation. You will find a list of frequently asked questions and access to the Attorney General’s Hotline, where individuals can call with complaints. Attorney General’s Office hotline operators have been trained on the Animal Care Facilities Act and the new Canine Cruelty Prevention Act.
Have a great week, everyone!

I live in Alabama so of course I cannot report a puppymill if I cannot see one.
I am proud to say that Alabama is stopping puppy mills Alabama.
Just because you do not hear dogs barking doesn't mean a puppymill has not crushed their vocals. ty
