The Michigan Friends of Companion Animals is a coalition and network of businesses and animal welfare organizations supporting stronger laws and ordinances to protect animals in breeding facilities and families from irresponsible pet retailers. Michigan Friends of Companion Animals is building a coalition of businesses, animal welfare organizations, foster-based rescues, shelters, veterinarians, dog groomers and boarding facilities to:

1. Pass the Large Scale Commercial Dog Breeder Act SB 339, which will help to curb puppy mills in the state.

2. Pass the Humane Pet Acquisition Ordinance in local communities, which will protect families from irresponsible pet retailers.

3. Sign-on pet supply stores to the Puppy Friendly Pet Store program to make an official policy not to sell puppies or kittens.

You can read more about the coalition and how to join by going to their website here or go their Facebook page here.
