The Ohio Dog Auctions Act: Ban Dog Auctions in Ohio

Horrible that this even exists. To auction of dogs to anyone for any purpose is just an act against decency. Please view the information below to see what you can do and pass onto those you know in Ohio.

OH: Ban Dog Auctions! Sign the Petition Today

ponsored by: ASPCA

**June 24, 2010: Good news, New York! The NYC Senate and Assembly passed the budget bill preserving the statewide spay/neuter program for low-income New Yorkers' animals. This humane legislation that will funnel hundreds of thousands of dollars annually toward this service has been signed into law by Governor Paterson.

Dog auctions are a little-known piece of the puppy mill puzzle. At these auctions, breeders sell dogs they no longer want to other breeders. Those who participate in these auctions typically run large-scale, commercial breeding operations where the primary motivation is profit rather than the well-being of the dogs.

The Ohio Dog Auctions Act would make it unlawful for any person to auction a dog in Ohio for any purpose. It would also prohibit bringing a dog into the state for resale if he or she was bought at an auction in another state. Sign the petition in support of The Ohio Dog Auctions Act!
