Mary Cummins, Animal Advocates, it’s illegal to sell animals on the street in Los Angeles


Did you know it’s illegal to buy OR sell animals in public areas in L.A.?  Apparently not many people do, but it’s time they did.

Recently, thanks to the generosity of the Found Animals Foundation, the first bilingual signs advising the public of these prohibitions were posted in the popular Downtown Fashion District where illegal sales of bunnies, chickens and other animals have been an ongoing problem for years.  LAPD advised us where they thought the signs should be posted.  More signs will be posted at the beach in Venice in the near future, another location where illegal sales take place.

Getting the word out is important because the illegal pet trade can only thrive when there are willing buyers.  Help us by spreading the word about these laws and by letting us know if you see animals being sold in public locations (date, time, exact location and kind of animal). In order to try to stop these abusive practices we need everyone’s cooperation..

Thank you,
