The Connecticut legislature is debating a bill to stop the sale of dogs, cats and rabbits in CT pet stores. Unfortunately, the Committee looking at the issue only agreed to a study and not to ban sales. A study is a “kick the can” down the road response; what is needed is to stop the sale of commercially bred pets NOW.   

What are puppy, kitten and rabbit mills? Almost all animals sold in retail stores come from commercial breeding facilities which disregard the health of animals in order to maintain a low overhead and maximize profits. Animals spend their entire lives in cramped cages with little or no personal attention. When the animals can no longer breed, they are abandoned or killed. Due to improper breeding, poor sanitation and a lack of preventative vet care, the animals shipped to retail stores frequently suffer from a variety of health and behavior issues, creating heartbreaking challenges for families who should be enjoying the delights of adopting a new family member.

If you live in Connecticut and care about animals, please join us in telling CT State legislators that NOW is the time to pass legislation to stop the sale of dogs, cats and rabbits in CT’s pet stores.
