What a great victory for animal rights.
I don’t know if you have walked through any of our shelters lately, they are overflowing with pets who need homes. I hear the well meaning message from rescue groups “don’t buy a puppy until all animals in our shelters have homes.” While this is well meant it doesn’t address the root of the problem. We must put puppy mills and backyard breeders out of business or we will continue to fight a losing battle against the overpopulation in our shelters.
Many of you who know me know I think less government is better. However government should stand up for those who cannot stand up for themselves. That would include the elderly, children, and animals.
Obviously the laws that we have on the books right now either are not being implemented or just don’t work. It is time to make some changes. Good job New York, the state of Georgia could take a list lesson on this one.
