Great news! Gov. Pritzker will sign this bill into law on Friday, August 28. Thank you to all who took action to make this lifesaving measure a reality.


If enacted, HB 1711 will help put an end to the suffering of countless animals in substandard breeding facilities and reduce killing in Illinois shelters by shrinking the retail market for milled pets — while increasing adoption opportunities for homeless dogs and cats.
