Did you know Hawaii has no laws or regulations for large-scale commercial dog breeders? And no laws to protect consumers who unknowingly purchase a sick or even dying puppy? An important bill, Senate Bill 414, is being considered next Wednesday and needs your support! The bill would simply set forth basic standards of care for those who breed and sell large numbers of puppies to the public, and who may otherwise put profit over welfare.

Please make a brief, polite phone call to your state senator  (click here to find your senator’s information), support for Senate Bill 414. After making your call, please send a follow-up message.

Please take one more step and submit official testimony in support of this important bill. Enter SB 414 to start the easy form.
