As you probably know, Missouri is known as the puppy mill capital of the US. There is currently a coalition of animal protection groups who are moving a bill to address that problem through the state legislature. If you would like to know more about the bill, Barbara Schmitz who represents the Humane Society of the US will be speaking about the bill this Thursday at the Eight Ward Independent Democratic Association meeting. You do not have to be a member, live in the eighth ward or a Democrat to attend. The meeting is 7:30 at St. Margarat’s of Scotland Church on Flad and 39th in the Shaw neighborhood.
