There is an estimated count of 6-8 million animals being taken into shelters yearly. 3-4 million of those animals are euthanized.
Some pets that are in pet shops come from local backyard breeders and puppy mills. By dissolving the sales of pets at pet shops, people will more likely adopt a pet from a local shelter or rescue group, helping to decrease the euthanisia rate. To many animals are dying, some not even given a second chance.
I want to end the sale of pets in pet stores unless, they are selling pets from shelters (if so they need proof).
Please sign this petition, and hopefully it will lead to something much bigger than a site on the internet.
