California Set to Become First State to Ban All Puppy Mill Pet Store Sales

Partisan politics apparently do not apply when animal welfare is at stake. The Long Beach Post reports that the California assembly passed the Pet Rescue and Adoption Act by a margin of 38-to-zero. The bills is designed to shut down high volume pet mills that commercially breed domesticated pets, especially dogs.

 I'm sure you're aware that puppy mills still exist in the U.S. The majority of pet mills are filthy operations in which animals are subjected to cruel treatment and inhumane living conditions. They exist primarily to put money in the pockets of mill operators and pet store owners.

According to recent estimates, there are approximately 10,000 puppy mills in the U.S., both licensed and unlicensed, with the majority located in the Midwest. These mills produce an estimated 2 million puppies per year, which is about the number of dogs killed in U.S. shelters each year.

Every pet not purchased from a pet store or backyard breeder improves the pet overpopulation problem created by irresponsibility and greed. Adopting a pet from a no-kill shelter can free up space for older or special needs pets that may not find new homes before the end of their natural lives. 

There are countless benefits to sharing your life with a dog, and when you know you saved your furry companion from an unpleasant fate, it makes the bond you share that much more meaningful.
