San Diego To Pass Anti-Puppy Mill Legislation

The Southern California city has mandated that all animals sold in its jurisdiction must come from a shelter or rescue.

Last Tuesday, the San Diego City Council unanimously passed an amendment that will outlaw the commercial sale of dogs, cats, and rabbits that do not come from a city or county animal shelter, an animal control agency, or a non-profit rescue. The amendment was introduced by Councilwoman Lorie Zapf. “I really love animals,” she told ABC 10 News. “I just want to ensure that they’re treated well and humanely.” Existing pet stores must have a certificate for each of their dogs, cats, and rabbits that can be presented to law enforcement officials indicating that the animals were obtained legally. Once the law officially goes into effect, San Diego will be the second-largest city in the US to enforce legislation of this nature, next to Los Angeles.
