8/6/2014: Terrible news for animal activists came out of Missouri today with the Passage of the "Right to Farm" Amendment which provides a near carte blanche to Missouri's farming industry. This includes the "farming" of cats and dogs, and now blocks anti-cruelty regulation and might even undo past animal rights victories. Sign now to show you won't stand for Missouri's horrible practices!

Puppy mills in Missouri are causing needless pain and suffering for countless dogs. These are facilities that keep dogs in tiny enclosures or wire cages where they sit alone for hours on end without any human contact or exercise. They often aren't even allowed contact with other dogs, and they must endure abhorrent conditions because they aren't let out for stretching or relieving themselves.

According to the Humane Society, Missouri currently leads the nation in puppy mills. This is despite the narrow passage of Prop B in 2010 which was specifically aimed at curbing this brutal industry and additional regulations in 2011 which imposed stricter rules on dog breeding.

Clearly, the state's recent legislation is not enough. Missouri has to take its puppy mill problem seriously! Sign the petition asking Missouri Governor Jay Nixon to lend his support to stopping the puppy mill trade in Missouri once and for all. Ask him to support legislation that ensures these poor, innocent animals are given the chance to live healthy and happy lives in proper facilities in the state of Missouri.

Dear Governor Jay Nixon,

As a concerned animal advocate, I am appalled to hear about the atrocities being committed in Missouri puppy mills. The dogs in these facilities are being treated very poorly—forced to live in wire cages among their own waste, and given very little contact with humans or other animals. To me, this is the definition of prison.

Yet, what have these dogs done to deserve this kind of treatment? The lack of exercise, sunlight, and contact with other animals and humans is detrimental to a dog's development. It's simply no way to treat any living thing.

Despite the passage of legislation that promised solutions to the problem, Missouri continues to be the nation's worst state for puppy mills. This cannot continue!

Puppy mill dogs don't live healthy lives, and it's our job to advocate on their behalf. Please join the fight for the welfare of these innocent creatures.

Thank you for your time.
