Greenacres to ban sale of dogs, cats from pet stores
Palm Beach Post Staff Writer
Citizens may lose the right to buy pets from pet stores in the City of Los Angeles before the end of the summer of 2012.
An overwhelming vote by the Los Angeles City Council has directed that a pet ban be considered and an ordinance drafted. The Council will vote on whether to adopt the ordinance once a draft is complete and a proposal made to the Council.

We believe it is illegal to keep banning pet stores and pet sales, on the basis of “rehomed rescue” saves lives. It’s pretty much an AR lifestyle belief being FORCED upon the public at large–eliminating competition and sales in commerce.
Los Angeles Ban, San Diego et al, Continue to Run Pet Stores Out of Business
If you think about it, banning sales of pets and then claiming that “selling or giving away” outside is “animal abuse” under the new current law pushed by the ARs, means that only rehomed, rescued or shelter animals are SELLABLE and any commercially bred pet is NOT sellable.
A commercially bred pet being outlawed (which lack definition but could mean as that defined under USDA kennels/APHIS)–means that selling something which is LEGAL is being outlawed. APHIS is Federal law and even if a commercial kennel is legal, selling a pet that was “commercially” raised is called illegal by the Animal Rights. Next thing will be to outlaw the sales of the food products which were “commercially” bred, “commercially” raised, or “commercially” slaughtered. After that, “commercially” advertised, “commercially” labeled, “commercially” packaged. Yeh, we see it all coming down.
Anything done commercially having to do with an animal, pet, or sales will be illegal in time. Hobby breeders that buy INTO this line of thinking are signing their own demise.
