Default ASPCA Advocacy for California law

Dear California Advocates,

California Assembly Bill 1122 would prohibit the sale of animals on roadsides and in parking lots. Many of these animals are bred and raised in poor conditions and sick at the time of sale—and since dogs and cats sold in this manner usually are not spayed or neutered, they contribute to the pet overpopulation that leads to tens of thousands of homeless animals being euthanized in the state each year.

If passed, this humane legislation will:
- eliminate the profit motive from people who sell sick animals, and
- protect consumers from unscrupulous breeders.

The bill contains language that exempts adoption events run by humane societies and legitimate animal rescues.

AB 1122 has already passed the California Assembly and moved to the Senate for consideration.

What You Can Do
The California Senate Public Safety Committee is expected to hold a hearing on AB 1122 this Tuesday, June 23.

It is critical that you contact the committee’s members before Tuesday to let them know that AB 1122 matters to Californians like you and you want them to support it.

Visit the ASPCA Advocacy Center now to email the entire committee and ask them to do all they can to get AB 1122 passed.

Here is the link for the ASPCA's advocacy section to lobby for animals (including California ban): http://www.aspca.org/fight-animal-cr...y-for-animals/

Thank you, California, for taking action for animals.

Thumbs up re: ASPCA Advocacy for California law

Here here. Although I myself have never seen animals for sale on the road or in parking lots, it would be good to create a law that prohibited it so that perhaps it would become a less common occurrence, though then again street vendors and pushcart vendors are also technically "illegal" and they still roam everywhere.
