San Francisco Pet Stores Can No Longer Sell Animals That Aren't Rescues

According to the SF Gate - Pet stores in San Francisco can only sell rescue animals under new legislation passed on Tuesday by the city's Board of Supervisors. 

The board unanimously voted to amend the health code "to prohibit pet stores from selling dogs or cats not obtained from animal rescue organizations or shelters." The amendment will also prohibit "the sale of puppies or kittens under eight weeks old."

In an editorial for the SF Examiner, District 4 Supervisor Katy Tang explained that the ordinance is "designed to bring attention to and halt the inhumane and deceptive practices of large-scale breeding operations.

Very very cool!
