At long last, pet sales on the way out in L.A.
BY GREGORY CASTLE
It’s a great day for animals in the city of Los Angeles! On Wednesday of this week, the Los Angeles City Council (by a vote of 12-2) approved an ordinance that bans the retail sale of dogs, cats and rabbits in the city.
With only a formality remaining before the ordinance becomes law, Los Angeles will become the largest community in the United States to enact legislation that puts an end to the flow of animals to pet stores from puppy mills, the large commercial breeding farms that supply pet stores.

Pet-sale bans waxing, puppy mills waning
By Denise LeBeau
As people become more enlightened about the horrors of the puppy mill industry and their retail interface (pet stores), communities across the country are responding by implementing pet-sale bans. These ordinances generally prohibit the sale of dogs and cats supplied by commercial breeding facilities (i.e., puppy mills). They do not prohibit use of the space to make shelter or rescue pets available.

“On August 6th, the House of Delegates of the ABA [American Bar Association] passed a resolution that calls for breed-neutral dangerous dog laws that focus on the behavior of dog owners and their pets rather than breed, breed types, or breed appearance as basis for laws intended to protect the public from dangerous dogs.”
The dog pictured is Yuma, an adoptable American Pit Bull Terrier/Boxer mix.
Meet Ibis! An adoptable Shepherd/Heeler mix puppy.
BIRTHDATE: September 2008
BREED: English Bulldog/Boxer mix
I LOVE: to lounge around the yard or house, and be near my human family.
I GET ALONG WITH: most mellow, large male dogs, and children 8 years and older.
I WOULD RATHER NOT: live with small dogs, cats, or very young children. I have lots of energy when I’m in a playful mood, and it may be a bit too much for a young child to appreciate!
I NEED: a home with lots of human affection and companionship; I love having people around!
WHAT MY FOSTER MOM LOVES ABOUT ME: Sadie is incredibly affectionate and I love having her around! She is strong, and does pull on leash a little bit, but that is easy to train and correct. She enjoys playing with my dog (a large, mellow male Lab mix), and she definitely seeks out my love and attention. Sadie has a very sweet personality, and I’m sure you’ll see it and fall in love!

Change the future for a beautiful black dog or cat
“Last year’s Back in Black adoption promotion helped find homes for more than 900 black dogs and cats nationwide. And this year, with your help, we hope even more deserving pets will find homes. Black dogs and cats make wonderful companions. But they’re often overlooked for adoption. So Back in Black is all about encouraging people to give them a second look — and a second chance.
You can be a real-life hero to a homeless pet. Change the future for one lucky animal by adopting a black dog or cat during the special Back in Black event! Together we can bring about a time when there are No More Homeless Pets®.”
