The Burbank City Council's decision to draft an ordinance to ban the sale of puppy mill dogs in pet stores made me proud to be a resident here. However, it is appalling that the council wants to write in an exemption for one store. The communities abutting Burbank's city limits have already become humane. Glendale and Los Angeles both have banned the sale of mill animals. By allowing this grandfathering, Burbank will remain a centralized pocket of inhumanity - all because one business has claimed that they, unlike every other pet store in the surrounding cities, simply cannot keep their business alive by adopting this new policy.

Puppies and kittens are lifetime commitments, not gifts or toys to be played with for a short period of time and then tossed aside, disregarded or replaced by the next latest and greatest “thing.” This is what happens when these adorable little balls of fur and fluff are purchased as presents and it is easier than ever to buy a pet in a store or online. With just one click, a life can be purchased. Internet sales tragically have become a major forum for puppy mills to sell directly to the public without any regulations.

Budah and Bunny are a bouncy, bonded pair that must be adopted together. Budah is a spunky all-black mini satin rabbit who is medium in size. His girlfriend is a large, beautiful brown bunny with charming white spots. They are learning how to use the litter box. Budah may seem a bit shy, but happily interacts with humans when Bunny is around. Bunny is very outgoing, loves attention and is quite curious. Budah and Bunny would be happy to be your only pets, but can be placed in a home with children and other pets.
