ILLINOIS LAWMAKERS PASSED A BILL THIS WEEK TAKING AIM AT PUPPY MILLS. 

 

THE MEASURE SAYS ANY CATS OR DOGS SOLD BY PET STORES IN ILLINOIS MUST BE FROM ANIMAL CONTROL OR A SHELTER, NOT A BREEDING MILL. THESE MILLS MASS PRODUCE ANIMALS WHICH ARE KEPT CONFINED IN SMALL CAGES AND OFTEN SOLD WITH DISEASES SAYS SENATOR LINDA HOLMES OF AURORA.

 

 

PET SHOPS WOULD BE PROHIBITED FROM SELLING DOGS AND CATS FROM INHUMANE MASS COMMERCIAL MILLS UNDER THE LEGISLATION. IT’S A PRACTICE THAT NEEDS TO END SAYS SENATOR LINDA HOLEMS OF AURORA.

 

 

IF THE BILL IS SIGNED INTO LAW, PET SHOPS WILL ONLY BE ABLE TO SELL ANIMALS FROM LOCAL CONTROL OR SHELTERS. THE PUBLIC WILL STILL BE ABLE TO PURCHASE A PET FROM A PRIVATE BREEDER.
