Alright souls, listen up,

The Centennial City Council is meeting tonight (January 20th) to have a study session on the law proposed to ban the sale of dogs and cats in pet stores. If passed this law not only takes a big step in the way of shutting down puppy mills, but makes it easier for surrounding areas to adopt the same sort of bans.

It’s easy to think this problem couldn’t possibly be happening here – we don’t see it anywhere right? And we’re such a responsible group as Coloradans; no one would buy puppy mill puppies. Pet stores have gotten really good at fooling people into thinking they are making responsible purchases by using language like “licensed USDA breeders” or “local breeders”. Neither of those statements have any effect on the conditions the animals are raised in. Responsible breeders do not sell to pet stores. Ever.

If you need more heart breaking evidence of what these places are capable of there are links below – or look up one of the Sarah McLaughlin ASPCA commercials, those get me every time.

Here’s the link to sign the petition supporting the law that will be sent to the Centennial Mayor, and City Council members. Take a minute and sign it. Let’s demonstrate what happens when souls speak up.

 

More Information about puppy mills, and what NOT to buy.

Let’s get in action, we can all make a difference. #SIAallday!
