An improvement for animals in California pet shops

Published 02/05/08

An investigation into 64 California pet shops, conducted by API in Spring 2007, revealed significant area of animal neglect. In October, Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger signed Assembly Bill 1347, the Pet Store Animal Care Act, which imposes stricter standards for the daily care of all animals sold in stores, not just cats and dogs. As Born Free USA united with API’s Monica Engebretson explains, inspections are “complaint-driven, so it requires concerned citizens to call attention to the stores.”
