When signed into law by Governor J.B. Pritzker, HB1711 will amend the Illinois Animal Welfare Act to stop the sale of commercially-bred puppies and kittens in Illinois pet stores. Illinois will then be the 5th state in the country to tell pet stores and puppy mills their cruelty is no longer welcome.
Regarding the Washington Post article titled Dog Fight, written by Kim Kavin who is seemingly a commercial dog breeding proponent. There are two sides to every story. You need to hear about what it’s like for the dogs that are in the hands of America’s USDA dog breeders.
