Give him a paw. Thanks to Gov. Jerry Brown, the Golden State is now the first in the U.S. to require that all pet stores sell adoptable dogs, cats and rabbits from shelters and rescue groups. Assembly Bill 485 was signed into law this month, and, as a dog owner and an animal lover, I’m so pleased to live in this progressive state. Learning about rescue dogs pulling victims to safety after last month’s Mexico earthquake, I say it’s high time we all rescue our furry four-legged friends in need.
