On April 1, 2017 Rescue Docs joined local rescues to protest S.B. 519 and H.B. 568, a vill designed not to protect consumers, but to protect Petland and other pet stores ability to purchase puppies from cruel puppy mills. As a society we simply must do better for our companion animals. 

Thanks to pressure put on the legislators from shelters and rescues across the state, the bill was narrowly defeated.
