Restricted pet sales increasing

California pet stores can now only sell dogs, cats, and rabbits if they come from shelters or non-profit rescue groups. The law became effective January 1. Under the law, individuals are still allowed to buy from private breeders, but stores are prohibited from doing so.

In Great Britain, pet stores are no longer allowed to sell pets. They have banned all third-party sales to protect the animals.
