Conversation on Illinois' "puppy lemon law"

A new law in Illinois gives pet owners a remedy if they buy a sick dog from a pet store. But the so-called "puppy lemon law" got us thinking: what happens to those sick puppies after they're returned to the store? Illinois Public Radio’s Brian Mackey called one of the groups that supported the legislation, the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. He spoke with Vicki Deisner, Midwest legislative director for the ASPCA about the puppy lemon law and several other new animal-welfare laws in Illinois this year.
