Things are a changin’ … for animals in need

Things are changing for animals all over North America as more pet stores are converting to a more humane business model instead of selling animals.

Petland in Pittsburgh will no longer be selling puppies.  See their story below.

Petland to sell animals from shelters and …. Puppy Love

Furthermore, a city in Australia has strengthened its laws to prevent children from purchasing animals and to provide more power to RSPCA inspectors to shut down puppy mills.  See New Victorian….

Finally, in a rural part of California, the fight against puppy mills is starting with education.  See Puppy in pet store window may be from puppy-mill.

A special thank you to Lisa from Small Animal Rescue Society (SARS) for sending me some of these great articles.
