The Chicago City Council approved a puppy mill ordinance 49-1!!
We wanna know who that foolish "1" was!
No matter, Chicago puppy stores aren't allowed to sell pets that come from puppy mills!
That's so amazing!

Now, the only animals who can be sold at pet stores have to be from rescues and shelters!
No more for-profit animal breeders can peddle their pets in Chi-town!
Pet store owners are afraid it'll put them out of business, but there should be more than enough rescued animals to go around.
We're so glad they've made this monumental move. We can only hope other cities follow suit!
Cough, LA, cough cough.
