  • Pet Stores Must Sell Dogs Cats From Humane Organizations Under Proposal FL

    http://saintpetersblog.com/pet-store...burg-proposal/

    Council members unanimously gave tentative approval to an ordinance that would ban the sale of dogs and cats in St. Petersburg pet shops unless they came from humane organizations or rescue groups.

    The item is scheduled for a final public hearing at the July 21 meeting.

    “It better protects pets and it discourages the puppy mill business, which, I think, is self-evident cruelty,” council member Karl Nurse said. Nurse had spearheaded the issue.

    The ordinance is similar to others that have been passed elsewhere in Florida and the U.S. It is designed to prevent the sale of dogs from puppy mills, which, animal advocates say, make money from cruel, inhumane conditions for the dogs that live in them.

    Under the proposal, pet stores, which includes such businesses as grooming parlors, flea markets and pet hospitals, would be banned from selling dogs or cats unless they came from rescue groups or humane organizations. The ordinance would not apply to hobby breeders or home breeders who sell dogs and cats from their homes.........
