March 3, 2009 8:42:03 PM PST
The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors is going after so-called "puppy mills." During Tuesday's board meeting, the board told animal control staffers to find ways to shut them down.Supervisor Michael Antonovich presented the motion calling for tighter regulations. He says Animal Care and Control employees have seen a "significant increase" in licensed kennels over-breeding dogs, often without adequate veterinary care, food, water or socialization.

The motion calls for county staff to review existing ordinances, then report back with recommendations to amend them in 45 days.
