A Different Kind of Sign:
Let your elected officials know
where you stand on pet mill regulation!

What Is A Puppy Mill?   *   What Can I Do About It?   *   Laws/Legislation   *   ACTION ALERTS!


This person wants her local, state, and federal representatives to know that there are more pet lovers than Republicans or Democrats!


       If signs advertising back yard breeders and puppy millers make you angry, you might want to make up some signs of your own to let your elected officials, local, state, and federal, know that you support humane care standards and laws to protect pets.

       Read what other states are doing to protect pets, and see if your state has pending legislation listed. If so, contact your legislators, and thank them for supporting the legislation or ask them to co-sponsor it. If not, contact your legislators and ask them to consider bills such as (name other states) are working on, or to sponsor ground-breaking legislation of their own. And if your legislator seems to have a history of ignoring or voting against humane legislation, respectfully state your displeasure and ask him why he has voted the way he has.

       NOTE: In 2009, the Wisconsin State Legislature unanimously passed Act 90, a law regulating dog breeders and sellers in our state. Since Act 90/s.173.41, the WI Dog Seller Program went into effect in June 2011, MANY breeders and sellers have been regulated and have either given up the business OR have come into compliance under ACT 90. (Read more about Act 90/s.173.41, the WI Dog Seller Program, here.

       You might courteously remind your elected officials that there are, indeed, 'More Pet Lovers than Republicans or Democrats.'
