Oppose Law in CA re “Rescue/Shelter” Only to be Sold…

April 6, 2017  THIS IS FROM naia…………..

ACT NOW to stop the outsourcing of dogs in California!

Congratulations California Lawmakers! {PD note……….WTH HELL no!!}

With AB 485, you would outsource the supply of dogs available to California consumers to the least regulated and poorest selection of dogs available to future pet owners. Rather than pet stores selling dogs bred by inspected and licensed breeders, you would prefer they sell unwanted strays coming from countries like Mexico and Korea, where diseases and parasites run rampant.

All the while, instead of solving problems at the source, California ships its own unwanted dogs to other states. Other states resent the irresponsible way California deals with their dog surplus.

AB 485 will require all dogs, cats, and rabbits offered for sale at retail to be obtained solely from the unregulated source of public and private rescue, and not from breeders. While hobby and show breeders might think they are immune, if this bill succeeds, they very well may be the next target. Not only that, but the floodgates for rescue imports will be opened, endangering the pet and even human population. For much more on this atrocious legislation, click here.

Please Take Action NOW and bring California lawmakers back to reality!

TAKE NOTE– FORCING ALL OF SUCH ANIMALS TO BE SOLD FROM ONLY NON PROFIT SOURCED ENTITIES IS VIOLATION OF THE COMMERCE CLAUSE EVEN IF IT’S IN ONE STATE, SINCE THE NON PROFITS WILL BRING IN ANIMALS FROM OUT OF STATE BUT NO ONE ELSE IS ALLOWED TO DO THE SAME THING?  DO WE REALLY THINK THAT PETLAND, IF IT HAD STORES IN CALIFORNIA, WOULD ALL SHUT DOWN?
THAT DOESNT EVEN MAKE SENSE BECAUSE THE SOURCE IS FROM OUT OF STATE, AND ONLY A NON PROFIT CAN DO IT?  ONLY THE NON PROFIT CAN BRING IN ANIMALS AND SEND THEM OUT TO PEOPLE WHO WANT THEM? NO TAXES GO TO THE STATE.
THE ALLEGED “RATIONAL BASIS” FOR THIS BULLSHIT IS JUST THAT–BULLSHIT.

ANYONE WHO KNOWS RESCUE KNOWS THAT IT WILL ONLY MAKE PEOPLE BUY THEIR ANIMALS FROM ELSEWHERE, AND MAYBE EVEN MOVE OUT OF CALIFORNIA, WHICH
IS BECOMING LOS ANGELES EVERYWHERE. DISGUSTING.
ASK ANY ATTORNEY YOU KNOW. IF THEY AGREE IT’S OK, THEY ARE ANIMAL RIGHTS.
