Yay for Hollywood!!!!

Yesterday the city of West Hollywood approved an ordinance to ban the sale of cats and dogs in pet stores. Here is a link to LA Times article.

http://www.latimes.com/news/local/la...,7786261.story

There is a pet store in my town that sells dogs and cats. It is heartbreaking to go in to the store. I know many people who have bought pets from there and so many of them have health problems. I am sending the article to my councilwoman today. Hopefully, my town will follow the lead of West Hollywood.

I wish they would do that in my town. We have a Shake-a-Paw on a very heavily trafficed corner. They probably pay the town quite a bit of tax revenue. My cousin has gotten dogs from them, and they have all had some kind of health issue.

Michele,

Find out who your city councilman is and send them an email. I just sent an email this morning to my councilwoman and she replied immediately. She indicated that other residents had similar concerns and she would add it to the meeting agenda. Good luck.

That's fantastic news!
Hopefully other states/provinces follow this as well.

Wish we could have that in all the 50 states!! Too many pet shops on the East Coast that sell puppies.

Best, Poornima

Great especially for that area- I hope it spreads to the surrounding areas as well! With the bad economy the one near me shut down

I feel so bad for the puppies in pet stores too. Yet I still sometimes can't help but go in to look at them. It's kind of like not being able to help looking at a bad accident while you're driving on the freeway. I see you live in Newport Beach.....I sometimes go into that pet store in Fashion Island [despite my husband's or mom's pleas to not go in] and I end up feeling so badly for all those adorable puppies looking at me with their sad eyes.

Hooray for WeHo! I'm extra happy because that's where I live
