Please PASS an Ordinance to BAN the Sale of Puppies, Kittens & Bunnies in Retail Stores in the County of San Diego, CA

This petition had 1,851 supporters


We request that County Law be enacted to Ban the retail sale of Companion Animals Dogs (Puppies), Cats (Kittens) and Rabbits (Bunnies) in the county Pet Stores unless those animals are obtained from an Animal Shelter, Humane Society or a 501(c)(3) Rescue Organization.

Animals sold in Retail Stores come from Mills (Large Commercial Breeders) and they are NOT Spayed or Neutered adding to the Shelter Pet Over-Population Problem and the Needless Killing of Healthy Animals every day in this country. California alone Kills 500,000 healthy Animals each year. That is one (1) Tenth of the Animals Murdered Annually in this country.  The parents of the animals sold in retail stores are left in horrific conditions at the Mills and Bred to Death never knowing LOVE <3

Reputible Breeders DO NOT Sell to Retail Stores, they are similar to Rescues in that they want the Pet to have the best chance at life possible. It is NOT just about money to them!

Being the 5th largest county in the United States, San Diego will be sending a powerful message to the State, this country and the rest of the world! That we care about Companion Animal Rights and that we, like the city of San Diego believe in the Humane Treatment of Companion Animals and that the suffering in the Mills and senseless, needless murder in our Shelters, simply for space needs to STOP!  Thank you and a big "Paws Up" for doing the RIGHT and Humane thing San Diego.
