"City pet stores will now promote adoption of rescued animals instead of profiting from breeder-supplied cats, dogs, and rabbits. The Los Angeles City Council recently voted 12–0 to ban the commercial sale of all non-rescued cats, dogs, and rabbits. A temporary ban on bred animals was in place in the city since 2013 and set to end on June 30. However, on April 20, council members voted to reinstate the ban permanently. The ordinance encourages city pet stores to hold adoption events for rescued animals and instead make their profits from companion-animal supplies. This legislative change is in response to animal-activist groups such as Puppy Mill Awareness that have successfully petitioned municipalities such as Mount Pleasant in New York to adopt puppy mill bans."
