After receiving an e-mail alert I did something I've never done before. I made a call, to the governor's office.
There is a bill waiting for Governor Rell's signature, SB 499 to be exact. It is a small but important step in the right direction in discouraging the sale of puppy mill dogs.

After reading about the bill I made the call. My call went right through to an actual person! How cool is that?! I mean, the governor's office must be super busy but they had time for me, for the issue at hand.
It isn't going to stop puppy mills but will help increase awareness about where the puppies come from. If a 'kennel' IS indeed licensed by the USDA that's a red flag right there. Then it is up to the consumer to make a choice to support the puppy mill or not. Eventually retail stores will get the idea, at least I'm hoping it'll work out that way.
