Missouri Alliance for Animal Legislation


Protect. Advocate. Legislate.

Puppy Mill Dogs Need Your Voice NOW!

Missouri's Governor Greitens has asked the Department of Agriculture to review regulations that may be onerous to businesses. As unsavory as they are, puppy mills are considered "businesses" and they would definitely love to see the current regulations reduced. 

The Dept of Agriculture has opened up their website for public comments through the month of June 2017.You have an opportunity to urge Governor Greitens to preserve and protect all our animal welfare regulations.

Spotlight on Missouri Puppy Mills 

As part of NatGeo Wild's new Cesar Millan series "Dog Nation", Alliance executive director Bob Baker spent an afternoon with the famed Dog Whisperer and his son Andre while they were in St. Louis this past October. Word of the Alliance's accomplishments in closing down 1,200 puppy mills had reached Cesar Millan, who was prompted to include en entire episode on Missouri puppy mills for his new television series. The St. Louis episode aired on March 24, 2017 but you can catch it on NatGeo Wild on any of the below listed channels in Missouri. The Alliance is confident that Cesar and Andre's new show will help raise even greater awareness of the plight of dogs and puppy mills.

American Kennel Club - Profitable Business on the Backs of Puppy Mills?

  • Did you know that the American Kennel Club (AKC) gives its registered breeders advance notification of AKC sponsored "inspections"? That's a shame - and a sham.
  • ​Did you know that the AKC consistently opposes all animal welfare legislation? That's hypocrisy.
  • Did you know that the AKC "dog shows" are subsidized by registration fees from puppy mills? That's terrible.

Alliance Executive Director Bob Baker has called out the American Kennel Club on more than one occasion. But until the public is better informed about how the AKC's marketing efforts are aimed squarely for profit at the expense of our canine companions, business will continue as usual.  And a lucrative business it is.
