Puppy mill legislation is happening in Colorado and Harley’s Dream is proud to be a part of it!! A HUGE THANK YOU to our Harley’s Hero, Joyce Cohen, and Berthoud Mayor, Will Karspeck, for working so hard to make Colorado a more humane state!
Both Berthoud and Breckenridge have ordinances in place that prevent pet stores from selling puppies and kittens. We’re currently working on establishing ordinances in several other Colorado towns/cities as well. Some of the ordinances will be preemptive and some will not – most important, they will help pave the path for a statewide puppy mill bill which is being discussed for the near future.
PS: Eight years ago a pet store ordinance was passed in Fountain, CO, but it grandfathered in the existing pet store in the town and the ordinance has never been added to their municipal code. To this day, they have a pet store selling puppies that were born in puppy mills.
