👍🏻 House Bill H.R. 1002 AKA the “Welfare of Our Friends (WOOF!) Act” 👍🏻
I’m in support of and recommend the passage of the House Bill H.R. 1— 002 AKA the Welfare of Our Friends (WOOF!)Act which would provide better protection for puppies by prohibiting the Dept. of Agriculture (USDA) from licensing dog dealers whose previous licenses have been suspended or revoked in the last 10 years if the license is for operating a facility that the dealer previously used.
Furthermore, this bill would prohibit the USDA from issuing or renewing a license to the dog dealer’s immediate family members, people living at the same address as the dog dealer, and certain legal entities if the dog dealer in question holds an ownership interest in the entity.
This bill closes a loophole that currently allows dog breeders with suspended or revoked licenses to keep their businesses running by simply having a family member or someone else who shares their address apply for a new license. By closing this loophole, this bill ensures that bad breeders’ businesses remain shut down, as the spirit of the law dictates.
