Target: Martin J. Walsh, Mayor of Boston
Goal: Thank city for banning pet stores from selling commercially bred dogs, cats and rabbits.
Thanks to the Boston City Council, which voted unanimously on the matter, pet stores can no longer sell commercially bred dogs, cats, or rabbits. The ordinance, nicknamed the “puppy mill bill,” is active throughout the city.
Apparently, no pet stores within the city sell commercially bred animals, however a few other stores that do were planning on expanding into the city.
This is a big step in the right direction. More than 120 other cities have enforced a similar ban and Boston is now joining them. Sign this petition to thank the city of Boston for protecting animals.
Dear Mayor Walsh,
Recently, the Boston City Council unanimously voted to ban the selling of commercially bred dogs, cats and rabbits. The ordinance, nicknamed the “puppy mill bill,” is taking a strong stance against puppy mills. It is encouraging to see such forward thinking and progress, and we hope that more cities will follow in your footsteps.
Thank you for taking this measure to protect animals. The animals and I greatly appreciate your efforts.
[Your Name Here]
