CRHS Passes State of WI Inspection
We are excited and pleased to announce we passed our inspection by the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade, and Consumer Protection! As a result, this means that we are in compliance with all state regulations as set in place by Wisconsin Act 90 and as such, we have been granted a Dog Sellers and Dog Facility Operators License.
After years of advocating for this law alongside our fellow animal shelter and rescue colleagues, this law was passed under Governor Doyle’s leadership on December 1, 2010. This law originated in an effort to end animal cruelty and puppy mills in the State. It went into effect on June 1, 2011.
This law requires all commercial dog sellers, breeding facilities, animal shelters, and rescue groups selling (adopting) 25 or more dogs from 3 or more litters annually to purchase a license and be inspected by the State. Once a group passes inspection and receives their license, they will continue to be inspected to ensure all dogs are provided adequate health care, shelter, food, and exercise and proper record keeping.
Our goal is and always has been to provide the best care possible for all pets staying with us. We work hard to be their voice, their advocate, their caregiver. We are proud to have yet another means to demonstrate this to the public by passing the State inspection.
