Urge state legislators to support Victoria's Law.

Great news! The state legislature is considering a lifesaving, bipartisan bill that would prohibit pet stores from selling dogs, cats and rabbits ― unless they come from shelters or rescue groups.

If enacted, Senate Bill 44 ("Victoria's Law") will help put an end to the suffering of countless animals in substandard breeding facilities and will help reduce killing in our shelters.

Americans have made it clear that they do not support puppy and kitten mills. That’s why Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, and more than 300 other cities and counties ― as well as the entire states of California and Maryland ― have already passed laws to ban the retail sale of pets sourced from commercial breeding facilities. Now the state of Pennsylvania is poised to do the same.

Please take action today by urging your representatives to support Victoria's Law.

Thank you for speaking up for animals. Together, we will Save Them All.


  • Your State Senator or Senators

Dear [Decision Maker],

As a proud resident of Pennsylvania, I respectfully urge you to support Senate Bill 44 ("Victoria's Law"), which will restrict the retail sale of inhumanely bred dogs, cats and rabbits, many of whom end up in our overcrowded, taxpayer-subsidized shelters.

I urge you to protect pets, consumers and taxpayers in Pennsylvania by supporting Senate Bill 44, Victoria's Law.
