Montgomery Co. bill would ban stores from selling puppy mill dogs

The Humane Society is calling for new legislation that would require pet stores to sell animals from rescues and shelters only.

MONTGOMERY COUNTY, Md. (WUSA9) -- There is a new push to end puppy mills in Montgomery County.

The Humane Society is calling for new legislation that would require pet stores to sell animals from rescues and shelters only.

If the bill passes, the county would follow in the footsteps of dozens of other jurisdictions that already have similar laws.

Council president George Leventhal says that right now no retail stores in the county are selling dogs or cats from puppy mills. The bill is intended to prevent such sales in the future.
