If you’re a California resident, we’re asking you to contact state senate representatives today to ask them to support AB-485, which, if passed, would prohibit pet stores from selling rabbits, cats, and dogs. Rabbits, cats, and dogs would still be available for adoption in stores through rescue groups or shelters.
This bill will be incredibly important in the fight to save animals from euthanasia, by forcing pet stores to only offer rescued animals to the public. You can read the whole bill here:
 The Senate votes on July 17th.
Please call these Senate representatives today!

If AB-485 passes this Senate committee, it will go to the Senate for a general vote. It will require the Governor’s signature to pass. You can find out more information about this bill on Social Compassion in Legislation’s website: socialcompassioninlegislation.org/pet-rescue-and-adoption-act
