Richmond bans puppy sales in pet stores!

Sunday, May 8: The start of Canada's first city to ban the sale of puppies and dogs in pet stores.

Many US Cities have adopted the same bylaw including:
West Hollywood, California, Albuquerque, New Mexico and South Lake Tahoe, California.

This is a giant step forward to discourage impulse puppy purchases by uninformed buyers, and prohibit pet stores from obtaining dogs from backyard breeders and puppy mills. Puppies born from puppy mills come from deplorable and horrific conditions, where breeding dogs are kept in wire cages their entire life to be bred over and over again. These dogs receive little to no veterinary care and are left with inadequate food, water, and proper socialization. (For more information: http://www.nopuppymillscanada.ca/mill.htm and http://www.humanesociety.org/issues/puppy_mills)






Hooray for Richmond! C'mon Vancouver, Burnaby and all of BC - let's step up to the plate and set an example for the rest of Canada and USA!
