North Carolina: HSUS’s Attack on Dog Breeders Looks to be Short on Time!

Friday, July 2, 2010

The House Finance Committee never took up Senate Bill 460 this week, and it looks like time has all but run out on the Humane Society of the United States’ (HSUS) attempt to pass legislation that targeted virtually all dog breeders. 

S 460, introduced by Freshman State Senator Don Davis (D-5), was promoted by HSUS as a bill to regulate “puppy mills,” but would have actually impacted all responsible commercial dog breeders, which could have had a devastating impact on people who use dogs for hunting. 

NRA worked with a large coalition of organizations opposed to the radical agenda of HSUS, and we wish to thank groups such as the American Kennel Club (AKC), the American Veterinary Medical Association, the North Carolina Agribusiness Council, the North Carolina Federation of Dog Clubs, and the North Carolina Sporting Dog Association for all of their hard work.  These are just some of the countless groups who worked to oppose S 460.  NRA remains committed to working next year with legislators on language that will only target the small percentage of large-scale problem breeders, while leaving the responsible breeders to continue to operate. 

Thank you for your efforts to voice your concerns to lawmakers.  Your calls and e-mails had a tremendous impact on this effort.  The North Carolina General Assembly will adjourn soon, and while S 460 remains, technically, viable, it is highly unlikely anything will happen with the bill.  If that should change, we will be sure to let you know.   Again, thank you for your help!
