This ban will help crack down on “Puppy Farms” and “Kitten Farms ” Etc. Animal Welfare Minister David Rutley said the ban “is part of our commitment to make sure the nation’s much-loved pets get the right start in life. ”

People wishing to adopt a kitten or puppy now would have to deal directly with a breeder or a re-homing center. They can no longer go to a pet shop or other commercial dealers.

This measure is endorsed by one of Britain’s best-known animal shelters, the Battersea Cat and Dogs Home.

I wonder if and when the United States will do this?
