Humane Society International urges councils to ban retail dog sales

In a powerful statement to the world, the Humane Society International is encouraging all cities to ban the sale of dogs in pet stores and praises Richmond, BC councillors for having the courage to make the first step towards a puppy-mill free world.

“We hope that councils across Canada will do likewise and ban the commercial sale of puppies through pet stores.”  ~ HSI

Furthermore, while Richmond Council has been criticized by some for their methods of banning instead of regulating the pet sale industry, the HSI has made it clear that banning was not only the ethical thing to do, it was the right way to stop puppy-mill sales.
