GREAT NEWS CA Democrats Pass bill to Ban Sale of Non-Rescue dogs, cats!

California Just voted to eradicate puppy mills
If you CARE about animals and hate puppy mills, you'll side with the Democratic Party.

California has now made it illegal for puppy mills to make money selling puppy mill dogs to pet stores. What a fantastic idea! 

California Bans Pet Shop Sales Of Non-Rescue Cats, Dogs And Rabbits

California officially banned the non-rescue sale of cats, dogs and rabbits. Gov. Jerry Brown signed Assembly Bill 485 into law Friday, Oct. 1, The Orange County Register reported. 

It takes effect in January 2019, and pet store owners who violate it will face a $500 fine. The Democratic governor’s signature was celebrated by animal welfare groups, including Social Compassion in Legislation, the bill’s sponsor.

Deplorable conditions of puppy mills
 “We are overjoyed with the Governor’s signature and broad support from the entire animal-loving community for this groundbreaking legislation,” the group’s founder and CEO, Judie Mancuso, said in a statement. “In banning the sale of mill-bred animals, California took a bold step forward. The deplorable conditions that animals suffer in these high-volume breeding facilities are not a secret and now they have a champion in California.”

Matt Bershadker, president and CEO of the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, praised the law for breaking “the puppy mill supply chain that pushes puppies into California pet stores and has allowed unscrupulous breeders to profit from abusive practices.”

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
