RICHMOND — Competing bills before the Virginia General Assembly to regulate so-called puppy mills have been leashed together.
The Humane Society of the United States last year launched a probe of large commercial dog breeding operations in Virginia.
The action was taken after an operation in Bland County, known as Dogwood Kennels, caught fire last March, killing nearly 200 dogs on the premises.
Animal advocates visited breeding operations to secretly take video of conditions that the dogs were being kept in.
