Because changes necessary to stop backyard breeding are long overdue. Your petition is among those that a ‘search’ of change.org for the words “backyard breeding and companion animals” shows may share our strong commitment to stopping indiscriminate backyard breeding…perhaps everywhere. Apart from signing our petition at :http://www.change.org/petitions/dog-lovers-everywhere-sign-petition-a-3-part-pledge-to-stop-indiscriminate-backyard-breeding-by-byb-s?share_id=WUHCHqCrzq&utm_campaign=signature_receipt&utm_medium=email&utm_source=share_petition ,….
….please consider “Collaborating” with us. While our petition serves to bring widespread attention to this very long-standing issue, we’re hoping that all of you will share your email, Facebook .Twitter, etc. addresses with us at firstname.lastname@example.org If we together can build what essentially would be a ‘private’ national network…perhaps even global…we can plan and organize truly meaningful actions to actually stop backyard breeding. (Please see some advocacy tools that already have been developed at www.standupfordogs.com/Issue1AMore.html )

A grace period is more than enough accommodation for the existing business. Puppy mills are inhumane and Burbank has no business enabling this terrible practice to continue. As a Burbank resident, I urge The City Council to do away with the "grandfathering" provision in this ordinance.
