Ok, I LOVE THIS!
California made history Friday by passing a law requiring all pet stores to sell rescue animals!
Taking effect in 2019, all dogs, cats and rabbits sold in California pet stores must be obtained from shelters, rescue groups or animal control agencies. For every animal in violation of the new law, pet store operators will be fined $500.
According to the ASPCA, approximately 6.5 million animals enter shelters around the country every year. Shelters reportedly euthanize 1.5 million of their animals annually.
