Phoenix, AZ, Beverly Hills, and about 60 other cities across the U.S. have all passed laws making it illegal for pet stores to sell any cats or dogs that don't come from a shelter or rescue.
The ramifications of this are incredible! These cities have struck a huge blow against the puppy mill and animal trafficking trade. They have given stray dogs and cats a chance to have a real life and to find a forever family.
Please sign this petition to urge Governor Pence and the Indiana State Legislature to follow the lead of these animal-loving cities and institute a statewide law requiring that any cat or dog sold in a pet shop come from a shelter or rescue. Just imagine how many animals we would be able to save if we had a requirement like this. And perhaps it would encourage other states to pass similar laws, or even pave the way for a federal law.
