EL PASO, Tex. – There’s dog-gone good news for man’s best friend out of the state capitol.
On Wednesday, the Texas House of Representatives passed House Bill 1818 (HB 1818), which prohibits the sale of commercially-raised dogs and cats in pet stores.
The bill encourages Texans to find pets from humane sources like shelters, rescues, and responsible breeders. Most puppies and kittens from pet stores come from inhumane puppy mills.
