Ohio Voters for Companion Animals – Petland received dogs from 19 unlicensed breeders in 2015

Ohio Voters for Companion Animals press release uncovered that in 2015 Petland received puppies from 19 unlicensed breeders.  As the press release indicates,

The Ohio House of Representatives is likely to vote soon on Petland-backed HB 573 (companion bill to SB 331 passed in May), which makes this new information about purchases by Petland from unlicensed “dog retailers” very significant, especially in light of Petland’s testimony in the House that they only obtain their dogs from USDA-licensed breeders.
