Breaking news: On December 12, St. Paul city council members will vote on adopting a humane pet store ordinance that prohibits pet stores from selling dogs and cats acquired from puppy and kitten mills. It’d continue to allow stores to host adoption events with animal shelters and rescues. In 2017, Roseville was the first Minnesota city to adopt a humane pet store ordinance, and this spring, Eden Prairie became the second.
Wanna help St. Paul become the third? Here are three ways to help:
- If you’re a St. Paul resident, you can email your city council members letting them know you live in St. Paul and that you support the Humane Pet Store Ordinance.
- Share this article with friends and family to build awareness and support.
- Attend the final vote with Animal Folks, Humane Society of the United States, and Animal Humane Society at St. Paul City Hall, 3:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 12.
