Huntington Beach: Outlaw retail sale of pets

Council move targets animal sales

Ordinance would eliminate sale, resale of dogs and cats in the city, and would make it more dog- and animal-friendly, Carchio says.

"The City Council voted Monday to draft an ordinance that would eliminate the commercial sale or resale of dogs and cats.
Councilman Joe Carchio, who introduced the item, asked the council to consider the ban to keep up with the city's reputation of being animal-friendly. The city has a dog beach and dog parks.
Carchio showed a video to illustrate the deplorable conditions of dogs in puppy mills, where some retail stores obtain the animals to sell."
