Reason AB 2743 is Necessary
Eight local governments in California have recently banned the practice of cat declawing, recognizing the practice as inhumane. A search of rental listings throughout California, however, shows a number of properties with landlords and managers requiring that potential owners will be considered only with declawed cats. Declawing can often have unintended consequences for property managers, physical complications for animals, and emotional and fnancial consequences for pet owners.

Deborah Howard is soft-spoken and affable, hardly what you'd expect from a woman knee-deep in the fight to defend against cruelty to dogs- and all companion animals - in puppy mills and pet shops throughout the country. In fact, CAPS, the group she founded in 1992, is the only national nonprofit organization focused solely on that mission, and I found out soon enough that this big-smiled woman means business.

SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- In San Francisco, where cats and dogs are officially called companions not pets, there is now a proposal to ban their sale.
The Animal Welfare Commission wants to prevent pet stores from selling dogs and cats, as well as smaller animals including hamsters, rats and chinchillas. Banning the sale of dogs and cats in the city is largely symbolic since few stores actually do, but they are selling the small animals and many eventually wind up at city shelters.
