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

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, especially Jeffrey Prang, who brought the ordinance, drafted by the Animal Legal Defense Fund and the Companion Animal Protection Society, to the council. 

 

May ALL cities soon follow suit so the mills will be put out of business!  BLESS YOU to all that had a part in making this happen!  Score one for the voiceless!  We hear your cries!
