Lifesaving Legislation: The First State To Require Pet Stores Only Sell Rescue Animals

(PET ADOPTION/ANIMAL NEWS) In a landmark victory for our four-legged friends, California will become the first state to require pet stores to exclusively sell rescue animals. Under the new law signed by Gov. Jerry Brown on Friday, commercially bred dogs, cats, and rabbits will be banned from pet stores, encouraging retailers to facilitate adoptions of animals from local shelters and non-profit rescue organizations. The bill's goal is to ultimately increase pet adoptions while reducing the number of pets sold from mass breeding operations,  also known as puppy mills or kitten factories. Assembly Bill (A.B.) 485, or the Pet Rescue and Adoption Act, will go into effect on January 1, 2019, and stores can be fined $500 for each animal for sale that is not a rescue. Read on to learn more about how this lifesaving piece of legislation will prevent the needless deaths of countless animals throughout California, and hopefully inspire other states to follow suit. -- Global Animal
