More than 200 cities across the U.S. have passed pet store ordinances to take a stand against the sale of cruelly-bred animals, but California is set to become the first state to ban the commercial breeding of cats, dogs and rabbits.
The Pet Rescue and Adoption Act, AB 485, passed the California State Senate with a 32-0 vote on Tuesday and now awaits Governor Jerry Brown’s signature.
The legislation is a high-profile attack against puppy mills. Now, the puppy you see in the pet shop window will be coming from a rescue group or animal shelter.
Any pet stores found guilty…
