IL: Help stop puppy and kitten mills

In August 2021, Illinois enacted important legislation to stop pet stores from selling puppies and kittens sourced from inhumane pet mills. This was a great step forward to protect consumers and make Illinois a more humane state for our companion animal friends.

Yet, several unethical pet stores have decided not to comply with this lifesaving policy and are using a loophole in the law to continue profiting from the sale of pets from breeding mills. 

Fortunately, there is new legislation pending in the legislature that would close that loophole; Senate Bill 1230 would ensure pet stores could not sell puppies or kittens from inhumane breeding mills.

TAKE ACTION: This important bill has already passed the state Senate and is now in the House. Please send a personalized message to your Representative today and urge them to vote YES on SB 1230.
