San Francisco passes new pet store law, pet stores can only sell rescue animals! - Doggies Care

Good news for dogs and cats as well as animal lovers! San Francisco passed a law to ban the sale of non-rescue dogs and cats at pet shops in efforts to eradicate inhumane puppy breeding operations.

The city will also ban the sale of animals under eight weeks old. “Most animal lovers are horrified at the thought of keeping their beloved family pet in a dirty wire cage for a second — let alone a week, month or even years.

Yet, that is the fate of many animals at large-scale commercial breeding operations across the nation, including the mothers of many puppies and kittens sold in pet shops,” the San Francisco Board of Supervisors wrote in an op-ed piece in The San Francisco Examiner.

“In response, more than 200 cities and counties across the nation have banned the sale of dogs and cats in pet stores.”

District 4 Supervisor Katy Tang, who sponsored the legislation, also called on the US Agriculture Department to reinstate information on its website documenting animal cruelty cases, which was removed earlier in the month.

The city of San Francisco currently has no known pet shops selling dogs and cats. Katy Tang stated the measure will allow the city’s Animal Care and Control Department to prevent future shops opening.

“While there are no known pet stores currently selling dogs and cats in San Francisco, we should all be concerned that one could open at any time, and without this legislation, our Department of Animal Care and Control has no way to stop them,” stated Tang.

San Francisco is not the only US city to implement this measure, which will also ban the sale of animals under eight weeks old. The other cities include Los Angeles, San Diego, Chicago, Philadelphia, Boston, and Austin who will enforce a similar legislation.
