Los Angeles is the latest city to ban pet stores from selling dogs, cats, and rabbits from breeders and puppy mills. Why is this fantastic news for animals? Every year in the U.S., 6 to 8 million dogs and cats end up abandoned at animal shelters. This new measure will require pet stores to adopt out animals from shelters instead—giving hope to homeless animals in Los Angeles!
Don’t live in L.A.? You can still help homeless animals by urging people never to buy dogs or cats from pet stores or breeders and only to adopt a furry friend from a shelter if they’re really ready for a serious commitment.

Hello! My name is Nina, and I am a musician-in-training, and I play 7 instruments. I am a liberal, an LGBT activist, avid reader, composer, singer, and poi spinner. I am vegan, and a strong supporter of animal rights.
I have always lived in Los Angeles but my family and I went to Mexico for my parents wedding. So we came back to LA. I don't like LA but were here already what can I do unless I move out and find my own housing. I have always liked animals and it was til I was like about 14 when I learned about tests they do on animals and I began to explore animal cruelty because I was interested it in it. I have watched videos that just broke my heart so that's why today I'm doing all I can to not buy anything that has harmed an animal and I'm vegetarian .
