Operation Bark Alert
April 9, 2009

Gov. Jay Nixon and Agriculture Director Jon Hagler highlight the administration's successful Operation Bark Alert program during a visit to the Humane Society of Missouri in St. Louis on April 9, 2009. Since taking office in January, the administration has successfully rescued more than 1,300 dogs from illegal or unlicensed breeders and transferred these dogs to shelters, rescues and adoption centers through Operation Bark Alert. Gov. Nixon and Director Hagler will continue to enforce Missouri's laws strictly to protect dogs and breeders who play by the rules.download
