In North Dakota and South Dakota, there are no felony penalties for animal cruelty.
There are 12 agencies licensed in MO to breed animals that have absolutely disgusting practices, including clubbing dogs to death, letting them starve, and keeping them confined in unsanitary and unsafe conditions. Many of these animals are kept in cages for their entire life, some of which cannot walk. This petition is going to be sent to the MO and Nebraska state legislatures, asking for permission to allow the humane society to suspend the licenses of these agencies pending court (criminal) hearings.

Animals are being terribly abused, and they can't stick up for themselves. We need to band together and help save these animals. http://www.humanesociety.org/assets/pdfs/pets/puppy_mills/summary_report_on_mos_dirty.pdf
