Breaking news! Today, the Boston City Council unanimously passed the Puppy Mill Bill sponsored by City Councilor Matt O'Malley, who worked tirelessly for this result. Mayor Marty Walsh has now also signed off on the measure, which prohibits pet shops in Boston from selling cats, dogs, and rabbits, and prohibits the sale of these animals in public parks, roadsides, and sidewalks. This ordinance is the first of its kind that has been passed in Massachusetts and we hope it won't be the last!
Could you please take one minute to send an email to your city councilors (you can look them up here) personally thanking them for passing this ordinance?
