West Hollywood Has BANNED Selling Cats & Dogs in Pet Stores (excluding shelter/rescue animals)!

Posted by buddhadog on February 2, 2010 at 10:27 PM Comments comments (9)

It was an historic night last night at the West Hollywood City Council meeting.  The room was jammed full of animal lovers that wanted to witness the beginning of the end of cruel puppy mills, where 99% of puppies in pet stores come from.  Many of us had spent many a Saturday protesting the pet stores that are supplied by the horrendous mills, like Elite Animals in West Hollywood.  I was so very impressed by the compassion of the mayor, Abbe Land, and the entire council, especi...

California's Compassion for Puppy Mill Dogs has Been Terminated by our Governor!

Posted by buddhadog on October 17, 2009 at 1:28 AM Comments comments (118)

Urgent action needed to stop taxes on veterinary services!

Posted by buddhadog on January 17, 2009 at 5:04 AM Comments comments (76)

From Pam:  Most people have a hard-enough time keeping up with vet bills, and taxing vet services will make it much harder on vets, people and animals.  People shouldn't be discouraged to provide vet care!


From Marie Atake of Forte Animal Rescue:




Say NO to taxes on veterinary services!


It will be directly harm the rescue community if it won’t b...
