A CAPS Investigation: California Pet Shops Selling Fake Rescue Dogs
A CAPS investigation reveals that California pet shops are using fake rescues to circumvent a new state law: The Pet Rescue and Adoption Act. The law prohibits pet shops from selling puppies, kittens, or rabbits unless the animals come from shelters or rescues. However, two fake rescues, Bark Adoptions and Pet Connect, have popped up, acting as passthroughs between puppy mills and pet shops. CAPS goes undercover to expose the fraud.
