Dear Ohio Granny,
No legislation is going to stop the people who do things wrong...they will just go underground, move, and continue to work the system as usual. Unfortunatley only we LAW-ABIDING, CONCIENTIOUS people will lose. Purebred dog (cat, horse, bird, cow, etc.,) breeding and raising is an art and a labor of love.
Another thing, The HSUS is NOT a humane society like our local animal shelters. The HSUS does not rescue animals and rehome them. They are a far left PETA type organization with the main goal of eventually eliminating ALL pet ownership once and for all.
Yes I am well aware of what they do. We are incorporated as a local animal shelter. The abuse and neglect I see in this rural area of Ohio is sinful. Some days I have not much use for my fellow man.
