ITEX  Donations Needed to Promote Backyard Breeder and Puppy Mill Legislation!

Animals Need Your Support!

LA Pets Alive is Sponsoring a Law to Stop Backyard Breeding. 

Finally, Much Needed, Enforceable Legislation

Is Craigslist (and other websites) Fueling The Backyard Breeding Epidemic?

With Animal Shelters and Rescues overflowing with adoptable pets, forced to compete with Backyard Breeders that don’t comply with regulations and operate without overhead.

Despite Craigslist rules prohibiting the selling of animals, annual estimates of 15 million “pets for sale” ads are published nationally on hundreds of websites.   

 Insufficient pressure on Facebook, Craigslist and other sites allow Backyard Breeders, Puppy Flippers, Mills and Scammers go unchecked.

While many animal welfare organizations support the end of Backyard Breeder ads, they have been largely ignored. 

In the past Legal and Public pressure on Craigslist has forced them to end their “erotic” and “adult” services.

The proposed law is designed to hold backyard breeders and those that enable them accountable. 

It’s a tax on all pets for sale advertisements with transparent registration.

Would Backyard Breeders pay taxes and complete comprehensive  registration , providing Identification, Location, Vaccinations and Health information?

The simple answer is that they WILL NOT COMPLY! 

That’s 100% completely expected!

 No Tax=No Ad,

No Registration=No Ad,

No Ads=No Sales,

No Sales=No Profits and 

No Breeding

Websites or Publications would be prevented from accepting ads without Paid Tax and Registration and (checkable) Permits. 

Large civil penalties will discourage Websites and Publications from accepting untaxed and unpermitted ads. Private enforcement is also a possibility.

 This petition is only the first step in implementing the law. Please show your support,
