RPOA Letter to Governor Abbott
Regarding HB 1451, the misnamed “Puppy Mill” Bill

(Similar letters were sent to Lt. Governor Dan Patrick,
Speaker Joe Straus, and Texas Agriculture Commissioner Sid Miller.)


Unfortunately we have not received any response to these letters regarding our request to move the administration and enforcement of HB 1451, the misnamed “Puppy Mill” Bill, to be under the Texas Department of Agriculture instead of the Texas Department of Licensing & Regulation, which is heavily influenced by “animal rights” staff and has no animal expertise.  The Breeder Advisory Committee is also “stacked” with PETA types.

This change in administration is imperative for the future of pet ownership in Texas!
