By 2019, dogs, cats and rabbits sold in California pet stores must come from animal shelters or rescue organizations.

The law is designed to help reduce mass-breeding that often results in abusive and unhealthy conditions for the animals.

 “This is a big win for our four-legged friends, of course,” said bill author, Assembly member Patrick O’Donnell, “But also for California taxpayers who spend more than $250 million annually to house and euthanize animals in our shelters.

“I am very grateful for the strong support we received from animal-lovers across the state and from Social Compassion in Legislation, the bill’s sponsor.”
