California Residents: Please Support AB-485
California residents are asked to contact their state legislators to ask them to support AB-485, which, if passed, would “prohibit a pet store operator from selling a live dog, cat, or rabbit in a pet store unless the dog, cat, or rabbit was obtained from a public animal control agency or shelter, society for the prevention of cruelty to animals shelter, humane society shelter, or nonprofit rescue or adoption organization that is in a cooperative agreement with at least one private or public shelter, as specified.”
This bill will be incredibly important in the fight to save animals from euthanasia, by forcing pet stores to only offer rescued animals–including rabbits–to the public.
Please contact your representative in the Assembly and also the sponsor of the bill, Assemblyman Patrick O’Donnell, and voice your support of AB 485 today.
