Dogs, cats, and rabbits at pet stores will need to be sourced from shelters and resuce groups starting in the new year. Capital Public Radio's Sammy Caiola reports as part of our series on new California laws taking effect in 2019.

Farmers have had the last seven years to make enough space for chickens to spread their wings. Capital Public Radio's Lesley McClurg went to the hen house to see how your vote is playing out.
Californians will vote this fall on whethr to strengthen the state's laws governing how fam animals are confined and raised. As Capital Puyblic Radio's Ben Adler reports, the proposed measure that qualified for the November ballot builds on a previous voter-approved initiative - and a separate state law.
