Selling pets, who can and who can’t? You can’t sell this but they can. In this instance, it’s our neighbors to the west, California. On October 13th the governor signed AB 485. This bill means no dogs, cats, or rabbits will be allowed for sale at pet stores unless the animals are sourced from rescues or shelters. Sounds like a good thing, unless you own a pet store. Pet stores are held to higher standards regarding sanitation, record keeping of an animal’s history from breeder to consumer and veterinary records. If the goal is the best treatment of an animal why not have all entities that deal in pets follow the same standard? If the goal is to stop the mistreatment of animal breeding, why did the powers that be stop at dogs, cats, and rabbits? Why are birds, reptiles, amphibians and fish not included?
