AZ Alert: Phoenix City Council to Consider Problematic Definition of “Pet Dealer” TOMORROW (12/18)

 Trouble for our neighbors in Arizona.....
December 17, 2013
The AKC Government Relations Department (AKC GR) has just learned that the Phoenix City Council will consider a proposal tomorrow that would prevent "pet dealers" from selling puppies unless the puppies come from a shelter or nonprofit rescue.
The concern is that the definition of "pet dealer" exempts kennels, which are defined as those who keep or harbor five or more dogs.  It is unclear if those who have fewer than five dogs would be considered a "pet dealer" and therefore subject to this regulation.
Those who reside or participate in dog events in Phoenix are encouraged to consider attending tomorrow's hearing and contacting the Phoenix City Council and respectfully ask them to clarify this proposal to ensure that Phoenix hobbyists with fewer than five dogs are not included in this ordinance.
