This law will guarantee that dogs and cats from cruel puppy/kitten mills will no longer be sold in the City of West Hollywood.
Congratulations! Thank you all so much for sending your support letters to the West Hollywood City Council. Tonight, the ordinance to ban the sale of dogs & cats in pet stores (except shelter animals) passed unanimously. This law will guarantee that dogs and cats from cruel puppy/kitten mills will no longer be sold in the City of West Hollywood.
The audience was packed with supporters, and several speakers and Council members noted the historic nature of the evening. Thank you all so much for your support! We are told from the council that your quick response via the overwhelming amount of support emails led them to this unanimous vote. They received emails from not only local and state supporters but also from groups and individuals from Washington to New York and even the United Kingdom (a shout out to Border Collie Rescue-UK). Thank you all, your activism is truly amazing.
