Good job, Irvine: City Council bans sale of dogs and cats!  »


Last night the Irvine, Calif. City Council passed some amazing legislation: They banned the sale of dogs and cats, rodeos, and animal circuses! Irvine has us all beat, California! Money quote:

Society is “moving toward a more thoughtful and conscientious approach to animals,” speaker Claire Kim said Tuesday night. “This ordinance responds to the spirit of our times.”

It totally is! It totally does! Next for the city: Mandatory spay/neuter laws, which the council decided to further study.

Three cheers for Irvine!
