Gov. Tomblin has finally signed the Puppy Mill Bill! Five long years for this bill and the Spay Neuter Bill to get through the Legislature. Both have been tweaked but they still passed. We will provide more of an update on exactly what each bill means for the animals of WV soon. For now, let's just enjoy our measure of success! Thanks to all of you who made calls, sent emails and went to Charleston. You truly were the voice for these animals!
