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.

While I was out running this week, I saw a man walking a puppy, he was coming towards me. I knew right away the dog was most likely from a mill. It was the cutest thing you have ever seen and I had to stop for both reasons. The puppy was “party” colored, fluffy, spunky and adorable.
