Puppy mills might have their days counted as Chicago joins the list of U.S. cities trying to ban the sale of animals raised by professional breeders.

The Companion Animal & Consumer Protection Ordinance proposal by city clerk Susana Mendoza would only allow city and county shelters, humane societies and animal rescue facilities to sell cats and dogs. The rule aims to decrease the number of euthanized strays at shelters and also alert the population of the way in which breeding puppy mills operate.

“They’re kept in very confined, tight quarters where they can’t even move around,” said Mendoza. “They are in their own excrement. They’re not cleaned. They get no exercise. … It’s completely inhumane. It’s a travesty.”

Mendoza tweeted a link for Chicagoans to sign the petition favoring her proposal, which will be put to a vote on February 26. If the measure is approved, Chicago will join 40 other cities that have already banned the sales of puppy mill animals including Los Angeles and Phoenix.
