It was only 4 days ago I posted about Gucci banning the use of fur from their apparel line, and now the state of California has passed a law that requires all pet stores to sell only shelter and rescue animals, this will hopefully put an end to mass breeding, although the law won’t actually take effect until 2019.
I personally encourage everyone to adopt from shelters/rescue centers I think people have this misconception that the majority of the animals in shelters are “old, sick or vicious”. And as for families who are specifically looking for puppies let it be known, shelters DO have puppies but because they are in high demand they are usually the first to get adopted. We adopted Mila who was 3 at the time (she’s now 4) and not only does she still have the energetic vibe and playfulness of a puppy she was already house broken (no potty training here) and gets along with other animals. Many people surrender their animals for various reasons and I try not to prejudge her previous owner but in all honesty I can’t help but think “why would anyone give you away?!” she’s healthy, never aggressive, loyal and loving and just an overall great companion, and right now there are plenty more animals in shelters waiting to find a home,family and a best friend that can give them the love they truly deserve.
