Animals Of The World List

Animals Of The World List Detail
In November of 2009, Last Chance for Animal’s (LCA) Special Investigations Unit (SIU) began working on a joint task force with the LAPD and Voice for the Animals (VFTA), investigating the illegal sale of animals in the Santee Alley fashion district of downtown Los Angeles. This investigation led to an ordinance, signed in September of 2011 to prohibit the purchase, offer to purchase, barter, or receive without cost, live animals on any street, sidewalk or other public place in the City of Los Angeles and carries a fine of up to $1000.
Los Angeles City Council approved a new city ordinance on Wednesday, October 31, 2012, that will ban the sale of mill animals in any pet store in Los Angeles. The ordinance includes dogs, cats and rabbits and institutes a 3-year ban, which, if violated, can incur a misdemeanor count and fines ranging from $250 to $1,000, depending on how many times the offense has been committed. Any dogs, cats or rabbits sold at a pet store must be obtained from shelters or rescues when the ban goes into effect. This ban, which takes effect six months from the effective date (not yet released) will put a huge dent in the demand for puppy mill dogs and help decrease the growing number of shelter animals in Los Angeles. In 2011, approximately 500,000 animals were euthanized in Los Angeles County at taxpayer's expense totalling an estimate of $50,000,000.
