maybe it seems like we're all on the california bandwagon lately, but the state has been making amazing strides in animal rights legislation.
west hollywood recently enacted an ordinance prohibiting all sales of dogs and cats in pet stores. however, they are permitted to offer adoptable animals from local shelters.
at madcat, our mantra is that we don't sell animals - in america, five million dogs and cats die each year just because they don't have human addresses. we're all about supporting local rescue.
