    Default Hawaii Puppy Mills

    Lawmakers look to regulate puppy farms - Hawaii News Now - KGMB and KHNL Home


    It's such a temptation for heartless individuals to cash in on the fact that we are isolated here with tough quarantine laws... thankfully though the news and local politicians are beginning to recognize and act on this problem.

    Always happy to see people trying to make animal welfare laws tougher. But like kazzy said, its so sad that there is such a problem with it in the first place

    I never would have thought about Hawaii as a place where you'd find puppy mills. But then, it does make sense, now that you mentioned it, with the quarentine laws, I bet there are those who try to take advantage. Glad to hear they're getting this changed!

    I think maybe the whole world has been starting to open their eyes on animal cruelty, over this past year I have seen some positive changes in puppy mill and breeding laws. Missouri made some huge changes- no breeder can have more than 50 dogs- yep I said 50- which is better than the hundreds they had before!!!!

    Hopefully this will continue to provide improvements for pets all over the country. But I still want to see the government step in and stop the importers from shipping whole puppy mill litters!!!

    This quote right here proves that the lawyer is not being an idiot because he's being the lawyer.... he's just an IDIOT!!!! The man needs a slap!

    Becker's lawyer, Victor Bakke, called the Humane Society's seizure Monday as "overzealous."
    "They're filthy but these are not household animals," he said, calling them "breeding machines." "They are equivalent to farm animals. They're being housed, fed and bred, and that's basically all that's required."
