Ohio lawmakers gave final approval yesterday to legislation that will enact new rules in order to clamp down on so-called puppy mills.
According to Cleveland.com, the bill was passed, essentially, to fend off a ballot initiative hosted by a human hate group named Stop Ohio Puppy Mills which just so happened to have the backing of the state’s so-called Humane Society.
While the state prohibits Ohio cities and towns from regulating sales of dogs to pet stores, the Ohio Department of Agriculture is given new powers to not only license but also regulate state dog breeders. Ohio is alleged to be a major state for dog breeders and that is why animal rights groups have targeted the state in hopes of shutting them down.
Local Humane Societies and Societies for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals operate their own dog kennels and, in some way, could benefit from these new rules. The truth is and as has been pointed out before, the puppy mills controversy is one of many ways animal rights groups seek to outlaw domestic animal ownership.
Groups, like PETA, allege the practice of breeding and selling animals in large-scale facilities is cruel and inhumane. However, what the real goal of such efforts, like Ohio’s new rules, is to ultimately shut down in and out of state breeders and their kennels condemned by animal rights groups.
This controversy came up in Maine three years ago, and according to Central Maine News, only a handful of the nearly 80 pet stores in the state sold dogs and cats while total sales averaged about less than 500 annually.
Opponents of so-called puppy mills accuse animal breeding facilities (mainly located in the mid-West) of having animals in poor health due to overcrowded and unsanitary conditions. Yet almost all of the operations in question are regulated and inspected by the US Department of Agriculture and state agencies too. The USDA also has a certification process in which animal breeders and kennels agree to abide by regular inspections and standards to ensure their facilities are safe and cruelty free.
Furthermore, as one opponent of the Maine’s bill stressed in 2015, instead of a blanket ban on substandard breeders and kennels, target individual ones that have cruel or bad conditions for the animals they breed. Not all large-scale breeding operations treat and house their animals poorly.
Demonizing so-called puppy mills is a sinister means to run pet shops out of business and lessen the means of which people can purchase or adopt domesticated animals. So-called animal rights groups, like the Humane Society, seek to ban such practices because they hate the idea of having animals bred for domestication. They use broad generalizations and outright lies in order to further their cause to not only preventing the usage of animals for ownership by humans but also to destroy our economy.
Puppy mills are really a smoke screen to mask the evil purpose of animal rights organizations. Their goal with campaigns to close or enact more rules on them is to ultimately run legitimate dog breeders and pet stores out of business. This, in turn, throws hundreds of thousands of people that directly and indirectly work in the pet industry out of work.
The animal rights movement is nothing not only a means of achieving the end of sacrificing mankind to the needs of nature but also to achieve the goal of subjecting mankind to the savagery of the animal kingdom. It is the barbarism of that world that animal rights groups revere, human life be damned.
