Florida City Bans Breeding

Florida City Bans Breeding

Ban Puppy MillsWe are doing a happy dance!  Please share this fantastic idea with the representatives of your county, city, and community officials.  This is what needs to be done.

Florida City Bans Sale of Commercially Bred Pets .  While I believe reputable breeders should not be stopped from breeding gorgeous and healthy purebreds, these days, it’s hard to tell the bad guys from the good guys apart.

While the article states that will not ban hobby breeders (which is weird) they will only allow breeders to produce one litter per animal per year.  Hobby breeders that we have rescued from have several dogs on their property, and even producing one litter per year per each dog will produce a staggering number of homeless puppies.

Several years ago, we rescued some dogs from a local breeder, seven of them, and we didn’t make a dent on the dogs she kept.  She just gave us the old ones that weren’t of any use to her anymore.  The laws need to be more clear, maybe a certain number of litters per household instead of one litter per female.  The dogs we rescued back then were ALL heartworm positive, none had had their shots, most had acute ear infections, and most needed dental extractions.  I was furious that the dogs received better medical care while in our rescue than while being breed.

While this is a great start, the law needs to be tweaked for it to make a difference.  Maybe one caveat should be, breeders who knowingly and willingly breed deaf and/or blind dogs should be banned completely and their adults should be spayed and neutered without exception.

The Examiner states:

Hallandale Beach, Margate, Lake WorthLauderdale Lakes and several places in Miami-Dade County already have such restrictions in place. Wellington will consider its own ban on Tuesday.
