To the editor: The Times is correct to support a state bill to ban pet stores from selling cats, dogs and rabbits bred for that purpose. (“That puppy in the window may have come from a bad breeder,” editorial, July 5) When I worked as a veterinary technician in a public animal shelter near San Francisco, I was appalled at the constant flow of animals that were dumped there every day.
