"From now on pet stores in California sell only dogs, cats and rabbits unless they come from animal shelters or rescue groups. The american state is the first in the country with the legislation – which are aimed at the controversial breeder whose activities are likened to factories."
"A great victory for our four-legged friends. So, said democrat Patrick O'donnell, who sits in California's lower house of parliament, when the state's governor Jerry Brown in October signed the new legislation is now in force."
"It means that it is then the turn of the year is illegal for shops to sell dogs, cats and rabbits that don't come from omplaceringshem, or that have been saved by the organizations, reports the media in the united states."
"It was already earlier local prohibition in California against the sale of animals from unregulated breeding establishments, which is usually likened to factories for kittens and puppies. But there is therefore now illegal in the entire state – and store owners who violate the law and which can not show the paper at the origin of the animals at risk of $ 500 (4 500 sek) in fines."
"However, it is continued to be allowed for people to buy dogs or cats directly from breeders."
"In the state of Maryland will the year 2020 be illegal for pet stores to sell dogs and cats but allows them to host adoptions. But the next act, which was signed in april, has not affected the business of Charm City Puppies in Columbia."
"– We have actually the hurt on puppies because of the holidays, " says deputy store manager Ashley Lawson to The New York Times and adds that they will fight against the law because not everyone has the opportunity to adopt, especially if they are looking for a particular race."
"– We believe that everyone should have a choice."
