Missouri Attorney General Andrew Bailey’s office lowers the boom against a Phelps County business owner by obtaining a court judgement for violating state standards for licensed commercial dog breeders.
In the judgement, the court ruled that Sandra Kozlowski operating Sho-Me Labradors defied a previous consent judgement issued in May-2020 for failure to comply with state law.
The violations included: keeping too many dogs, letting her breeder’s license lapse and failing to provide the dogs with fresh water or access to the outdoors.
Kozlowski was also ordered to pay $5,000.00 of suspended penalties from the original judgement.
A total of 96 dogs were seized and taken to St. Louis for evaluation with the remaining ten dogs to transferred to the Humane Society of Missouri.
