Kansas City, MO – Missouri Proposition B squeaked in last night by two points.
Supporters say the measure will require dog breeders to provide safer and cleaner conditions for animals.
At the 75th Street Brewery, a group of nearly forty had dwindled to seven when Proposition B was declared victorious just before midnight. Dispelling some campaign rumors, a spokesperson for the Missourians for the Protection of Dogs says they have no other plans to set up rules for the treatment of animals in business or agriculture in Missouri.
"If we can get such an initiative passed here, it gives us hope for other states coming on board and doing the same thing," says Courtney Thomas.
Dog breeders will have a year to comply with the new rules of Proposition B.
