(STATEHOUSE) - A recent piece of state legislation tagged "The Puppy Mill Bill" takes aim at animal cruelty and commercial dog breeders by increasing standards for animal care, along with penalties for violating those standards.
The measure passed the House in February and is now in the Senate.
Mitchell police dismantled a reported puppy mill in the city south of the river at the end of January 2008.
