The law mandates that all dogs that are sold in pet stores must come from a shelter. Phoenix joins about 60 cities in the US with laws like this.San Francisco follows the lead of Los Angeles, San Diego, Chicago, Philadelphia, Boston and Austin, which all have similar measures, along with the ban of the sale of animals under eight weeks old. Mimi Bekhechi, PETA’s director of international programmes praised the vote saying, “With this vote, San Francisco has proved itself to be the city of love for millions of dogs and cats in desperate need of homes. Pet shops’ greed fuels the cruel commercial breeding industry that keeps female dogs and cats prisoner inside filthy wire cages – whose only purpose is to churn out litters of inbred puppies and kittens who are then taken away from them, transported hundreds of miles, and sold.”It is a common misconception that pet store dogs come from reputable breeders. The reason many people probably believe that is because it is what many pet store staff members tell customers. However, reputable breeders don't sell dogs to pet stores. They want to meet the future owners of their puppies to ensure that they are going to responsible, loving people. That is part of being a breeder and working to enhance and grow a dog breed.
