语篇导读: 美国旧金山市最近通过立法的形式来保护收容所的宠物们,帮助动物们找到温暖的家。

a law was passed last month in san francisco, california to protect shelter (收容所) pets. the city now requires pet stores to sell dogs and cats from shelters and rescue (援救) groups only and bans① the sale of non-rescue dogs and cats, and puppies under 8 weeks old, by pet stores in the city.

san francisco will not be the first us city to take such a measure. los angeles, san diego, chicago, philadelphia, boston and austin all passed similar laws to help more rescued pets find homes.

“most animal lovers are not willing to keep their family pet in a dirty cage for a second — let alone a week, month or even years,” the san francisco board of supervisors wrote.

“in response, more than 200 cities and counties across the nation have banned the sale of dogs and cats in pet stores.”

each year, shelters across the us take in more than 7 million dogs and cats, according to the american society for the prevention of cruelty to animals (aspca). about 2.6 million of those animals don't get adopted② and are put to sleep.

“there are so many shelter animals that need loving homes,” says the lawmaker katy tang.

meanwhile, most dogs and cats seen in pet shop windows come from breeders (饲养者) who sell them to the stores. many breeders take good care of their animals. but some breeders raise hundreds of animals at a time in dirty spaces. the animals often go without enough food or water, or proper medical treatment.

tang says san francisco's new law is meant to send a message to any breeder who treats animals cruelly.
