In an effort to close down all puppy mills, the San Diego City Council voted to ban the sale of dogs, cats, and rabbits in all pet stores. The second largest city in the country to follow the ban, Los Angeles, already banning pet store sales, is the largest city.

Puppy mills are notorious for breeding animals under the most heinous conditions, forcing them to nurse their young under the most unsanitary and unsafe conditions. Driven only by profits, the animals are only useful to them as long as they are producing. The pet stores around the country and often found in shopping malls, are the biggest clients of puppy mill offspring.

To put an end to puppy mills and the continued mistreatment of the innocent animals in their possession, contact your city and state officials and convince them to follow in the footsteps of San Diego and Los Angeles by asking them to ban the sale of animals in pet stores. Dr. Gary Weitzman, CEO of the Humane Society, assures responsible and reputable breeders that they will not be affected by the ban.
