The law, which primarily applies to dogs, cats and rabbits, means that pet stores can no longer sell animals that were commercially raised in "puppy mills" or "kitten factories", according to the New York Times. Instead, the animals available at California pet stores will have to be rescue/shelter pets that are in need of a home. CA is the first state to ban sales of puppies from puppy mills.
The new law takes effect January 1, 2019. From that day on, pet store operators will be prohibited from selling any live dog, cat or rabbit in a pet store unless the animal was obtained from a public animal control agency or shelter, American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals shelter, Humane Society shelter, or rescue group.
The law does not prevent owners from purchasing animals from breeders, but they can not be sold via pet stores and breeders will have to sell to owners directly. But some argue that the new legislation will impact their business, especially if they own a pet store.
The new requirement is expected to help reduce the cost of operating animal shelters, which now costs about $250 million a year to house and kill dogs, cats and other animals. "We're talking about the commercial breeders that are pushing through 300 to 3,000 dogs a year". "They just want to start fresh with a puppy, and this law makes it very, very hard".
The American Kennel Club is opposing the move, saying it will increase the likelihood that people purchase pets that are not a good match and end up leaving them in shelters.
