"On Oct. 11, 2010, Richmond City Council passed first, second and third readings of a new bylaw that would prevent puppy mill operators and puppy brokers from distributing puppies through pet stores. The city is now in a public consultation phase before the bylaw is brought back to City Council for final approval in November."

If you live in Richmond, or anywhere in BC, please write in to the Richmond Mayor and Council and the Richmond newspapers (links in the article link at the top of this post). This would be the first time any jurisdiction in Canada has banned the sale of pets in pet stores, and would be a huge step forwards for animal rights in Canada.

This a great step, every time I go to a pet store I feel so depressed. The worst thing are the birds though.

Hopefully more people will go to shelters!

San Francisco is trying to do this too! I'm not sure what the deal with it right now is though, they keep having meetings about it and then nothing happens.
