A Sad Day for Dogs in Missouri—House Votes to Repeal Prop B

Wednesday, April 13, 2011 - 3:00pm

Folks, we are facing our worst-case scenario: By a vote of 85-71, the Missouri House of Representatives has just joined the Missouri Senate in passing Senate Bill 113. This Bill would result in the total repeal of Prop B—also known as the Puppy Mill Cruelty Prevention Act—and wipe out the provisions to protect puppy mill dogs Missouri citizens fought for.

“On November 2, Missourians went to the polls, and Prop B won with the support of nearly a million Missouri voters,” says Cori Menkin, ASPCA Senior Director of Legislative Initiatives. “Whether you care about ending puppy mill cruelty or the democratic process, this attack on the will of the people is appalling.”

It is now in the hands of Missouri Governor Jay Nixon to stop this assault on voters’ rights—and our team is on full alert ready to take necessary action. Please stay tuned for breaking news regarding the repeal of Prop B.

It is a know fact that every serial killer commited crimes against animals before they moved on to humans. Animal cruelty just lets us know who those people really are

Jim is clearly not very bright but rather a morass.

Jim's correct. We need to be caring about people, but that doesn't keep us from caring about dogs or other animals, too. Both issues are things we need to address. Our humanity encompasses how we care for humans and animals. On this website, we are talking about caring for animals.

You simply don't get it! If people don't have compassion to save a simple puppy, what makes you think they will every develop skills to help a child in need! Its been shown proven that people who abuse animals are more likely to abuse their partners or family! Where do you fit in here!?
