Puppy Mills

A bill aimed at regulating puppy mills passed Senate approval and is going to the Assembly. Legislators heard testimony about one mill, where the owner allegedly cages non-selling dogs, "shoots them, and dumps them into holes." So what abuses go on in Nevada? How can we regulate them? And if you're looking to buy a puppy, how can you tell if it came from a puppy mill?

If you can spend another couple of minutes making a pledge of as little as $5, you’ll feel like a superhero defending democracy for less than the cost of a month of Netflix.
