California Forces Pet Stores To Sell Rescue Pets

Nov 6, 2017

Pet stores in California will be stocked differently under a bill just signed into law.  That law makes the state the first in the country to ban pet stores from selling animals raised in "breeding mills." 

Animal rights groups including PETA object to the treatment of animals from the breeders. 

The law will force pet stores to offer rescue animals for sale, though breeding operations can still sell direct to customers. 

The Group Social Compassion in Legislation also supported the change. 

Group founder and president Judie Mancuso visits, with PETA's Lindsay Dadko.
