ASPCA says most Americans back the end of puppy mills

A nationwide poll found the majority of Americans agree with legislation that would stop the operation of puppy mills, according to animal advocacy organization, the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA). The poll pointed to 77% of respondents who expressed support for such laws. The poll was completed by Lake Research Partners. 

The poll found 71% of respondents would support laws that allow for the USDA to enforce legislation currently in use- the Animal Welfare Act (AWA). ASPCA calls for greater action to enforce regulations around AWA, and for passage of “Goldie’s Act” which would set ongoing inspections, penalties, and ability to confiscate animals, as well as share violation information with local authorities. 

"For decades, the USDA has failed to enforce the law intended to protect dogs in puppy mills, and this research confirms that Americans overwhelmingly support stronger enforcement of the Animal Welfare Act to protect dogs and hold puppy mills accountable," said Nancy Perry, senior vice president of government relations for ASPCA. 

"Goldie's Act will require the USDA to do its job to protect dogs in federally licensed facilities. We thank Representatives Axne, Fitzpatrick, Quigley, Malliotakis, Wild, and Buchanan for introducing this lifesaving bill and we urge Congress to pass Goldie's Act to ensure dogs receive the protection they deserve,” said Perry.
