California: One More Step to End Sales of Puppy Mill Animals

Posted on September 25, 2017


UPDATE: California bill AB 485 passed the Senate and is on Governor Jerry Brown’s desk. AB 485 would require that all cats, dogs, and rabbits sold in stores come from rescue organizations, not commercial breeding facilities.  This bill would make California the first to pass such a law on a state level.

If you’d like to read the full text of AB 485, the bill is posted here.


We need you to call Governor Brown today and urge him to sign the bill.  Please call him at (916) 445-2841 and simply say:

Hello! I’m a constituent from [Your City] and I want to urge Governor Brown to sign AB 485 to protect both animals and consumers in California from the puppy mill industry. Thank you for your time.

You can also send an email to or a fax to (916) 558-3160.
