Good news—Washington Senate Bill 5651, the bill that will help dogs in our state’s puppy mills, has passed the senate! It is now being considered in the Washington House of Representatives, which could vote on it as soon as next week.
SB 5651 will set a cap on the number of intact, adult dogs commercial breeders may keep, as well as establish basic standards of humane care for these dogs—including minimum requirements for cage size and exercise.
The next few days are a critical period for SB 5651. Please let your representative know that you want this bill to pass.
