Cat shelters become unregulated ‘commercial suppliers’ to pet shops in California — 3 Comments

  1. Also in today’s social media world how long do you think a pet store would stay in business if they sold sick animals? Also PETA has been able to shut down pet stores who are abusive and sell sick animals by organizing a protest and putting it all over social media, most recently in NYC, the owners just closed up and left one day. People in my town here in CA forced a pet store to also close up and go away by protesting in front of the store every day, all very legal. The owner decided it was easier to leave than pay legal and court fees. People in CA are very passionate about animals and will take to the streets to defend them from greedy bastard criminal abusing breeders. Other states unfortunately not so much but the tide is changing with declawing bans in CO, NY, NJ, CA.

  2. It is very easy to check the status of a legitimate rescue. Any 501 3 c non profit organization IS registered and IS regulated heavily because of their tax exempt status. It is also possible to check their financials. Will this stop every evil POS who abuses animals and should be beaten within an inch of their lives? No, most laws a criminal finds ways around it because they are criminals. But this law will definitely put a lot of these houses of horror out of business. Sounds like the mill sadists and shithead POS breeders tried to use this propaganda to not get the law passed. And they gave each other a way to get around the law in case their other POS mill sadists did not figure it out. Stop saying this, YOU ARE HURTING ANIMALS AND HELPING THESE SCUMBAGS. THE LAW IS PASSED, SHUT UP

  3. Yeah this is messed up. I actually thought the shelters were regulated, but they’re not. Not yet anyway, and the way things have been going I doubt they will be any time soon. Messed up. The ASV (Association of Shelter Veterinarians) states: “To date, no federal agency or judicial act regulates the welfare and care of companion animals in a shelter environment.” However they, the HSUS, and the ASPCA offer guidelines. There are laws governing, but the remaining problem is enforcement.
