West Hollywood, California – October 18th, 2017   LIVE coverage of the historic news conference celebrating California’s new animal rights law: The Pet Rescue & Adoption Act! It says dogs, cats & rabbits offered in California stores must come from shelters & rescues, NOT puppy mills! The hope is this will spread nationwide, putting an end to puppy mills everywhere! Social Compassion In Legislation sponsored the bill with Assemblymember Matt Dababneh. #janeunchained

It was held at Healthy Spot in West Hollywood, a compassionate pet store that advocated for the bill.
