    A bill coming up for a vote in the California Senate could help shut down the puppy mills that supply retail pet stores. AB 485 would require that all cats, dogs, and rabbits sold in stores come from rescue organizations, not commercial breeding facilities. Bills like this are picking up speed nationwide, and in California alone, more than 30 cities have similar laws, including Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Sacramento. This bill would make California the first to pass such a law on a state level.
