A WIN for cats and dogs :)

A WIN for cats and dogs :)

Normally when there's talk about politics I'm all like:

But I heard some news that made me go like:

Last weekend was the state election in Victoria. And the new Labor government has promised that they will make sure that NO cats and dogs are sold in pet shops UNLESS they're from an animal rescue group :)

So not only will more animals like me get a second chance and a comfy bed and walks and cuddles, but it means that people can be sure that their new friend doesn't come from a horrible puppy factory. (Yup, it's true. Most pet shop puppies come from puppy factories :( See for yourself.)

I reckon this should be the rule in ALL Australia don't you? Maybe you could write to your local politics person and ask them to do the same in your state. I would but ... I'm a dog.

The best news is you don't have to wait for any rules to be changed to be a friend to dogs and cats and help stop puppy factories. By pledging to always adopt, rather than buying from a pet shop, you will be a hero for someone just like me :)
