"The sale of cats, dogs and rabbits in pet stores fuels the poor breeding at puppy, kitten and bunny mills. We must end the puppy mill to pet store pipeline now. My bill, A.6298, will prohibit the sale of dogs, cats and rabbits in pet stores, and instead allows pet stores to make space available to shelters to display animals for adoption."

Puppy with Rare Skin Disease

Tiny Layla was found as stray in appalling condition, her skin was raw, she had almost no fur and she was obviously very uncomfortable. After weeks of tests and trying various medicines, we got the awful news that Layla was suffering from a rare skin disease.

Help Chubbs Fight Liver Disease

Chubbs is a 28 pound, 9 year old cat abandoned in an overcrowded kill shelter. But Shelter Chic saw even through the cage bars how much love Chubbs had to offer - he actually reached out through the bars of his cage, grabbed his rescuer and would not let go!

Sabrina's Road to Recovery

Sabrina is a five-year-old pit bull recently pulled from a kill shelter in New Jersey. In most ways, she’s the perfect dog: even-tempered, loving, good with kids, dog-friendly, and great with new people!
