Updated: Senate Version Of Minnesota Commercial Breeder Bill To Be Considered On Thursday, March 13

(Tuesday, March 11, 2014)
Minnesota Senate File 36 will be considered by the Senate Judiciary Committee at 6PM on Thursday, March 13, 2014. The bill seeks to regulate commercial breeders, defined as “a person who possesses or has an ownership interest in animals and is engaged in the business of breeding animals for sale or for exchange in return for consideration, and who possesses ten or more adult intact animals and whose animals produce more than five total litters of puppies or kittens per year.”

While online bill information does not reflect these changes, SF 36 was amended by another legislative committee yesterday to make it similar to its companion, HF 84. AKC’s commentary on the current version of HF 84 may be viewed here.

Minnesota residents are strongly encouraged to contact the members of the Senate Judiciary Committee with their thoughts on the legislation.
