Should this Puppy Mill Ban Come to Our City?

The city of San Francisco has voted to ban the sale of non-rescue dogs and cats at local pet stores in a move to prevent so called “puppy mills” and to help find homes for the animals that their local shelters take in each year.

According to the Huffington Post, the new proposal from District 4 Supervisor Katy Tang will only allow the sale of dogs and cats from animal rescue groups or shelters at pet stores, and ban the sale of animals younger than 8 weeks old.

In a board meeting, Tang said, “We really do believe that it will send a great message not just in San Francisco but across California, nationwide and hopefully worldwide.”

Hopefully this idea will catch on.
