Your help is urgently needed to express SUPPORT FOR – AB 485 and prevent retail sale of pets from BREEDERS.
Nationally each year, millions of shelter animals are euthanized; and many of these animals may have begun as sold for profit retail pets – bought at pet shops or directly from breeders – because per the ASPCA – tragically, only about 20% of people actually adopt pets from shelters, and the staggering majority of 80% of people are still going to pet retailers and “adopting” a pet by purchasing their chosen puppy or kitty or other animal. The animals supplied to pet retailers are coming from for-profit animal breeders.
Meanwhile, at least 70 million animals continue to be abandoned or homeless; and all the while breeders and pet retailers go on ignoring the current surplus of animals and continue to breed and supply more animals for profit retailing. Many breeders may be reputable and care for the animals they breed – but still, they are ignoring the reality of their oversupply of pets – is costing pets by the millions their very lives. And worse still, many breeders are subjecting their breeding animals to inhumane conditions and treatments; as well as discarding animals once they are through breeding them, or are otherwise deemed unprofitable.
WHAT CAN HELP SOLVE THIS PROBLEM?
Of course, what is needed is for people to continue to be educated to adopt and save a life – by adopting a pet from a shelter instead of purchasing a pet from a retailer. But, another way to help mitigate the very real crisis of pet overpopulation – is with expressing our SUPPORT FOR – AB 485 Pet Rescue & Adoption Act. This will prevent the retail sale of pets from breeders; which of course would directly ensure more pets from shelters find homes and a whole lot more animals lives are saved.
WHAT YOU CAN DO TO HELP:
Please support AB 485 Pet Rescue & Adoption and BAN retail pets by BREEDERS – and help end the FOR PROFIT RETAILING of pets and help prevent the massacre of surplus animals that end up euthanized each day in California.
