How I wish this is also implemented in the country.
In San Francisco, California, a law has been passed that state pet stores are only allowed to sell rescue animals.
This has been done as an effort to eradicate inhumane puppy breeding mills in the city. All pet shops in the city can no longer sell dogs and cats that haven’t been rescued.
San Francisco is not the first city to do this. They followed suit Los Angeles, San Diego, Chicago, Philadelphia, Boston, and Austin, which all have similar measures, along with the ban of the sale of animals under eight weeks old.
The law also bans future pet shops from opening to inhumanely sell illegally bred animals.
Now, if only we can also promote something like this in the country.
