    Default LA Ordinance Proposes Ban of Pet Sales at Pet Stores

    This isn't specific to bulldogs -- but I'm guessing it will go a long way toward helping keep pet "impulse buys" out of rescue and shelters.

    What do you think about this?

    that is great to see... I hope it starts a trend across the country. I have been to a puppymill raid and it is one of the saddest most inhumane things I have ever experienced in person.

    I think this has been in the works since around last year hasn't it? I remember a previous discussion about it. I think it is a good idea, personally. Weren't they also thinking about requiring breeders to obtain a license?

    I like the idea of not selling dogs in a store. Holding an adoption is one thing but selling them no thank you.

    Yes..it's been going city by city here. There is a movement statewide too. It's absolutely a step in the right direction. Sadly..the states where puppy mills are rampant will NEVER allow the big bad government getting in the way of the big bad dollar. Remember in Missouri..the Humane Society worked to get big improvements in Puppy Mill businesses..even passed a measure by the public..and their state legislature overturned it. Guess Puppies don't have millions of dollars to buy off politicians.




    Again with my soapbox

    I think it's a great start. Remember laws like this can start small but have a way of snow balling. Let's hope that's the case here!
    If you can’t adopt – foster.
    If you can’t foster – sponsor.
    If you can’t sponsor – volunteer.
    If you can’t volunteer – donate.
    If you can’t donate – educate, network, and crosspost.
    EVERYONE can do something large or small, to help save a life.

    It's a great start and should bring more awareness to those who have no idea that puppymills even exist.

    I am hoping that, like many things, this starts with a seed and grows into a giant tree. I can't imagine what raiding a puppy mill would be like.... it would be nightmares for me for the rest of my life. I can't even watch that one commercial on TV.... Oddly enough, the starving children commercials don't bother me.

    This is a wonderful start. Maybe other states will follow suit. It is certainly well past time something is done.

    Its a wonderful start. I hope it continues. @Vicaroo1000 once you do a puppy mill raid it is ingrained forever, in that you are right.

    Luckily it's been illegal here for as long as I can remember. It's not allowed so sell anything bigger than a gerbil. They cost less than 100€ so not that big of a business.
