AUGUSTA – A bill to crack down on the sale of dogs and cats from out of state breeding operations is moving closer to becoming law.
The Maine house voting in favor of the bill on Friday. If approved, pet shops will have to attest in writing where their animals originally came from.
Supporters claim that out of state mills are inhumane, while opponents say the bill won’t necessarily fix that.
Further votes will be taken in the house and senate before the bill can become law.
