Amazing New Jersey Law Requires Pet Stores Sell Only Rescue Animals

0

According to The Humane Society, there are at least 10,000 puppy mills in the U.S. today. They produce more than 2.4 million doggies a year — and less than 3,000 of those are regulated by the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Approximately 3.9 million dogs enter shelters every year with 1.2 million of them being euthanized.

“These puppy mills have gained a notorious reputation for putting profits ahead of the humane treatment of dogs and cats,” says Senator Raymond Lesniak who introduced the bill. “Their mass breeding has created inbred health and behavioral problems and the inhumane conditions have left too many of these pets to suffer from neglect and mistreatment.”
