Judge’s ruling on pet rescue pets
A Phoenix, Arizona judge has ruled that all dogs and cats sold in the city’s pet stores must be pet rescue pets. Phoenix has joined about 60 other US cities in deciding that the animals must come from animal shelters and other non-profit organizations.
People in favour of the ruling say that it is doing away with puppy mills and encouraging people to adopt pets. The reasoning is that would be fewer unadopted pets out there.
