There's a pet store that I drive past every day called Happiness Is Pets and the walls are lined with tiny cages full of puppies. I've seen picketers/protesters out front a few times, but the place has been in business for years. I'm not in the City of Chicago, but if this passes there, hopefully it will spread to the suburbs. I'm all for the responsible breeding of pets, but these pet stores don't get their animals that way.
