Los Angeles Bans Non-Rescue Animals in Pet Stores

Los Angeles is taking large steps toward ending puppy mills thanks to new a ordinance affecting pet stores.

Earlier this month, in an effort to help eliminate puppy mills as well as reduce the number of animals in shelters that are euthanized, Los Angeles city council members voted for the city to ban all pet stores from selling non-rescue animals. The law is designed to charge stores that do not comply with a misdemeanor and penalty fee of $250. Breeders are still able to sell companion animals, but only directly to buyers. If passed, Los Angeles would be the largest city in the United States to enact this type of policy and around two dozen pet stores could be affected.
