McCrory promotes dog adoption, breeder bill

Posted: Updated:

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - Gov. Pat McCrory wants the public to adopt some abandoned and maltreated dogs while he and his wife keep seeking legislation to set minimum conditions at large commercial dog breeding operations.

McCrory held a news conference Wednesday to advertise a dog adoption day Saturday at the Executive Mansion in Raleigh. Joining him outside the old Capitol building were a few dogs removed from a Pender County location last month. The governor said some of the Pender County dogs will be among pets on the mansion property looking for new owners this weekend.

He and first lady Ann McCrory promoted a bill this year that sets minimum care standards for some people who breed dogs to sell as pets. The measure passed the House but didn't get heard in the Senate.
