Please Urge your U.S. representative to support the Pet and Women Safety (PAWS) Act, an ASPCA-supported federal bill reintroduced in the U.S. House of Representatives on March 5.

Boston Bans the Sale of Puppies, Kittens and Rabbits in Pet Stores
History was made on March 2 when the 13-member Boston City Council unanimously passed an ordinance that bans the sale of puppies, kittens and rabbits in pet stores. The bill also bans the sale of these animals on public grounds, in parking lots and outdoor markets. The measure was signed into law the same day by Mayor Marty Walsh. Adoptions of animals from shelters and rescue groups hosted in retail settings will still be permitted.
