CA Shelter Requires Adoptive Pet Parents to Support Gun Control

“If your beliefs are not in line with ours, we will not adopt a pet to you.”




An animal shelter in Thousand Oaks, CA, is requiring would-be pet parents to reveal their views on gun control.

The Shelter Hope Pet Shop decided to “stop adopting out animals to those who oppose certain restrictions on gun ownership,” People reports.

Kim Sill, owner of the shelter, was quoted stating: “We do not support those who believe that the 2nd amendment gives them the right to buy assault weapons. If your beliefs are not in line with ours, we will not adopt a pet to you.”

Sill enacted the policy following mass shootings in Uvalde, TX, and elsewhere.

Amy Hunter, spokeswoman for the National Rifle Association, told NBC News that the policy was an “asinine political litmus test” that “comes at the expense of needy and homeless dogs and cats.”
