New Jersey senate passes a new law that requires the pet stores to only sell rescue animals!
The New Jersey senate has just passed a bill that hopefully will have a significant impact in the future. It is about how pets are purchased and should help to crack down the cruel puppy mill industry.
There are more that 10,000 puppy mills in the United States of America today. They produce more than 2.4 million puppies every year. Less than 3,000 of those puppies pass the United States Department of Agriculture regulation.
Around 3.9 million dogs ends up in shelters every year. 1.2 million of them is put to sleep every year. How sad is that?
“These puppy mills have gained a notorious reputation because they put profits ahead of the humane treatment of the dogs and the cats,” says Senator Raymond Lesniak who introduced the bill. “Their mass breeding has created health inbred problems and behavioral problems. The inhumane conditions that these pets live in have left too many of these pets to suffer from neglect and mistreatment.”
