California Bans The Sales Of Mill-Bred Animals In Local Pet Shops
October 17, 2017
California became the very first state in the U.S. to pass a law prohibiting pet shops from selling non-rescue animals. Some of the Californian cities, including San Francisco and Los Angeles, already have similar policies. The Assembly Bill 485, however, makes the ban on mill-bred animal retail sales statewide. It comes into effect starting from January 1, 2019 and is already signed by the Governor, Jerry Brown.
