The Greater Birmingham Humane Society (GBHS) is vowing to keep up its fight against puppy mills.

On Thursday, the director of the humane society expressed her frustration over the defeat of Atti's law in the state legislature.

The "Puppy Mill Bill" would have created a commission to license and inspect high volume dog and cat breeders.

"It was even said in committee today this is what's happening in California. To compare our great state to that, the rhetoric needs to stop. We are not going to stop, these people are not going to stop," said the GBHS Director.

The humane society is now looking at hiring a lobbying firm in hopes of getting the bill passed in the future.
