One big news happened in California.
Now you can no longer buy small animals that were kept by breeders.
This news was introduced so that people would focus more on buying animals that lived in shelters.
Often the owners of animals treat them very badly. They don’t take care of them, they don’t feed them as much as they need, they are always dirty, which affects the animals very badly. In addition to adult animals, it also has a bad effect on the cubs that are born.
Careless owners are now forced to change their behavior towards animals.
Kitty Block said that they are doing a very good job with this, because puppy mills have fewer and fewer opportunities to sell. This statement was made by Kitty to The Dodo.
By the way, she is the acting president and CEO of the Humane Society of the United States.
This big change will make future pet owners take very good care of them.
