sold here. >> so let's take care of the ones that are in the neighborhood. >> reporter: the new law states any pet store selling an animal has to post which rescue or shelter it came from. so there isn't any question in pedigree. >> i think it's a good thing because there's a lot of dogs in the shelters that people give away because they thought it was going to be a good fit for their families and it's not. >> reporter: although many of these owners bought purebred animals, they say they aren't offended by the law. you can still buy from a breeder, but this law helps give more exposure to the animals left behind who truly need a home now. >> those are the first dogs that get put to sleep and they need a lot of help. so that's a really good idea. >> reporter: the hope is next time you're picking up pet food you may pick up a new pet and give another pup a chance to run free. >> if you love dogs, then you'll do the right thing. >> reporter: this rule was signed into law back in october of 2017, but it didn't take effect until today simply so that pet stores all across the state could have time to
