New California law is a start; Florida legislators pay attention

California is a leader when it comes to the protection of animals and even they don't have anything to stop backyard breeders. That could all change with a new law which went into effect on January 1, 2012. Now it is against the law to sell or give away animals in parking lots. Fines can be levied in the amount of $250.00 and it is a misdemeanor. Violators can face of to 1 year in jail and $1,000.00 fine if there is neglect or abuse involved.
Backyard breeders are a scourge on society. Puppies are bred with no lineage, sold with no shots or dumped outside the area if they are not purchased.
Finally someone is coming up with some kind of law, even though it is minor to help combat this problem. Florida legislators? Are you paying attention?
