Yes..I agree! But we could NOT as a broad sweep stop that! But..individual cities are quickly moving to ban the sale of puppies..many cities have already banned them..unless they are from a bonafide rescue agency...in fact..our local mom and pop store was basically dragged..kicking and screaming a few years ago..into changing their practice of selling obvious puppy mill puppies into rescue only dogs..it has been very successful and they've won awards and recognition. As you can see from above responses..people think it's the "big bad government".. When it's really the people behind the big bad government. I'm very very tired of complaints about "the government".. I guess these people don't want or need police and fire protection! anyway..sometimes we have to take tiny steps to finish the journey!My concern with this is the fact that it is ALLOWING puppies to be sold in pet stores, a practice I find sickening. They are the largest puppy mill supporters.
Ok.If the intent was to stop puppy mills, then ban puppy mills... California continues to amaze me, and I'm from California. So now if want a puppy, you have to go to a puppy mill in someone's private property to buy it, but you also are unable to buy a hamster from the pet store. So you have not stopped the puppy mills, but you shut down numerous businesses... smart move.Didn't San Francisco ban toys from happy meals, then try to ban keeping goldfish in a bowl? Just more control onpeoples lives... you can blame Fox News for reporting it, but I'll give them credit, because this mentality bothers me.Keep it in California where the residents are happy about it, please please please
This article is a piece of crap..and I hardly believe the humane society is an"animal extremist" group.
