History was made this Fall in Illinois. Villa Park became the first town in the state to pass an ordinance banning most sales of dogs and cats within its borders. Villa Park may be the first, but there are many towns now considering a ban as well. Pet shops will undoubtedly find it more difficult to open new stores, expand to new towns, perhaps even to remain in the buildings they already occupy. For the sake of puppy mill dogs (and all pets for that matter) - the time has come.
