Law regulating dog breeders takes effect today

Posted:

MADISON (WKOW) -- A new Wisconsin law regulating dog breeders, rescuers and shelters takes effect Wednesday, June 1.

The law requires a license for breeders who sell at least 25 dogs a year from more than three litters. Non-profit shelters also need to apply for a license, along with animal control facilities that contract with municipalities or counties.

Supporters say the law will help boost business for responsible breeders by shutting down those who don't care for their animals.
