Tuscon, AZ: Tucson City Council Study Session, March 4, 2014
Tucson City Hall

The Humane Society of the United States invites our members and supporters to join HSUS Arizona State Director Kari Nienstedt at the Tucson City Hall during the city council's study session to urge council members to support a proposed ordinance to restrict the sale of puppy mill dogs in pet stores.

Tucson City Council Member Steve Kozachik proposed an ordinance that restricts the retail sale of dogs and cats obtained from large-scale commercial breeders. The new ordinance is designed to increase the placement of homeless pets in permanent homes and decrease the number of animals euthanized in our shelters. Additionally, this will help move the marketplace away from puppy mills toward consumers buying directly from responsible breeders and pet stores holding in-store adoptions of animals that come from shelters and rescue groups. The ordinance is similar to laws passed in more than 45 other cities throughout the U.S. and Canada.

RSVP today to make a difference for pets. Contact Kari Nienstedt at knienstedt@humanesociety.org if you have any questions.
