Texas Dog Legislation

TheTexas Legislature is considering several bills concerning pet dogs. A good place to learn more about the non animal rights view (which is very different from the animal welfare view) is at Texas Responsible Pet Owners  www.rpoatexasoutreach.org. Many of the bills are well intentioned but they will target the wrong people.  One bill will actually put good dog breeders out of business while protecting the puppy mills. Good breeders rarely make money at breeding so burdening them with more fees makes no sense.  Please contact your legislator to let them know you want to be able to enjoy a companion dog and you want to choose from reputable breeders not the puppy mills.  There are still about 14 more pieces of bad dog legislation pending.
