Ban Chicago pet stores from selling abused animals from puppy mills


The Los Angeles City Council just voted to ban pet stores from selling pets bred in puppy mills and instead support adoption programs. In addition to reducing euthanizations, the law seeks to put an end to commercial breeders that keep animals in cramped, dirty cages with inadequate vet care, breeding them over and over again for the pet store industry. News outlets reported that Chicago officials claimed that if LA passed the ban, so would they. Now is the time for Chicago officials to do their part to stop animal cruelty and help homeless pets! Many can make a difference for many more.
