Puppy mill crackdown

Local - 5/5/2013 9:33 PM
CHARLESTON - Thanks to two new laws, dogs and their caretakers will get more protection and support.  West Virginia joins more than 30 states across the country in passing laws that crack down on puppy mills.  The Senate bill requires anyone keeping more than 10 dogs for breeding purposes to provide solid flooring, adequate food and water and veterinary care.  It also states that breeding facilities must be licensed and inspected.  The second bill establishes a program that will issue grants to non-profit spay and neuter programs.
