#100Daysofgoodstuff Day 14: Good Dog

FINALLY, a post about puppies, right? Well, looks like New Jersey Senate just passed a bill that should significantly increase the number of rescue dogs adoptions, and curb the puppy mill problem.

From the article:

In an effort to crack down on the use of puppy mills, one state is taking a stand: The New Jersey Senate approved a bill earlier this week that would require pet stores licensed after January 12, 2016 to sell only dogs and cats obtained from shelters and animal rescue organizations. The bill will now head to the Assembly where it will be debated, reports The Record. “These puppy mills have gained a notorious reputation for putting profits ahead of the humane treatment of dogs and cats,” Senator Raymond Lesniak, who introduced the bill, told reporters last December. “Their mass breeding has created inbred health and behavioral problems and the inhumane conditions have left too many of these pets to suffer from neglect and mistreatment.”
One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?
