Sacramento To The (Animal) Rescue—City Bans Selling Of Commercial Pets

A law that prohibits the sell of animals from breeders and puppy mills in pet stores is something I can definitely get behind. The majority of pet stores in the area have already been jumping on this band wagon, working with local shelters to host permanent adoption areas on sight (think Petco and Bradshaw Shelter).

The new law applies to dogs, cats and rabbits so I am not sure if reptiles and smaller critters will still be sold in stores, but it seems like that might be the case.

The point of this legislation is to cut down on unethical breeding that can happen with commercial sales.

Front Street Animal Shelter Director Gina Knepp told KCRA, “In many cities, animals are brought in from other states, from ‘puppy mills,’ where they live a horrific life — especially the breeder mothers, in cages their entire lives.”

When it comes down to it, adopting shelter animals saves lives, saves money and many shelter animals live longer and are healthier overall.
