INDIANAPOLIS — A new bipartisan bill in the state house aims to curb puppy mills while helping animal rescue services in the process.

House Bill 1160 will bar pet stores from selling dogs or cats unless they come from a shelter or rescue facility. The push for the law comes as some area shelters are seeing surging intake numbers.

The bill was authored by Democratic State Representative Chris Campbell and co-authored by Republican State Representative Tom Saunders.

Representative Saunders says the bill has yet to reach a committee.
