Toronto Bans Sale of Puppies and Kittens at Pet stores

This is excellent news.

Toronto City Council has banned the sale of puppies and kittens at all city pet shops.
The majority of these pets come from Puppy and Kitten mills, where there is in-breeding, serious health problems, poor socialization, poor treatment and care and they are forced to live in very small cages.

If you are looking for a pet - Adopt from your local shelter or humane society. In most cases they will be fully vaccinated, dewormed and Spayed or Neutered.
