Nevada city considering ban on store-sold pets

South Lake Tahoe has moved one step closer to banning the retail sale of dogs and cats by pet stores.

The Nevada city’s planning commission recommended approval of the proposed ordinance on a 4-1 vote Thursday, according to the San Jose Mercury News. It now will go to the City Council for consideration.

Supporters say the ordinance would allow the city to do its part to combat puppy mills—high-volume breeding facilities considered inhumane by animal welfare organizations such as the Humane Society of the United States, which says most dogs sold in pet stores come from puppy mills.

If approved, the ordinance would give stores that sell dogs or cats two years to phase out that part of their business.

Good heavens! Somebody break out the “suddenoutbreakofcommonsense” tag. This could actually work.
