HB 5386: Restricting the cruelty pipeline into Connecticut

Connecticut has an important opportunity to pass a bill that benefits consumers, is humane for animals, and puts Connecticut’s 14 pet shops in sync with the best practices of our state’s more than 100 pet stores. A bi-partisan amendment to House Bill 5386 is an immediately necessary measure that would restrict the pipeline of out-of-state puppies being imported from commercial breeders/puppy mills and sold in pet stores. It could also help the many homeless companion animals of all shapes, sizes, and breeds that are languishing in our shelters.
