San Francisco is one of 200+ cities fighting against mass-producing puppy and kitten mills that supply many major pet store chains with animals. As many already know, puppy and kitten mills are often fraught with abuse and neglect.

People can still purchase puppies and kittens from breeders directly, but the law requires that any pet store must sell dogs and cats (and puppies and kittens) that are obtained from animal shelters, Humane Societies and registered rescue organizations. This will eliminate the demand for animals from puppy and kitten mills and offer more space and possibilities for adoption for homeless pets in need.
