Raleigh, North Carolina – Cumberland County lawmakers are trying to push a new law onto the books intended to stop people from operating “puppy mill” type dog breeding operations.

The bill has become controversial and has drawn stiff opposition from dog breeders and the National Rifle Association. They say it will harm legitimate breeders and owners of hunting dogs. The Bladen County commissioners on Monday adopted a resolution to oppose the bill.

But advocates such as the Humane Society of the United States say the law is necessary to prevent further instances of abuse and neglect. Authorities have seized diseased dogs living in filthy conditions.

The bill passed the state Senate 23-22 in August and is pending in a state House committee. Rep. Rick Glazier, a Fayetteville Democrat, on Tuesday organized a news conference to call attention to the issue, although he was unable to attend.
