San Francisco Plans to Reward Pet Stores that Don’t Sell Pets

San Francisco Plans to Reward Pet Stores That Don't Sell Pets

In June, San Francisco’s Commission of Animal Control and Welfare recommended that the city ban pet stores from selling pets. Unfortunately the recommendation has made little headway and the Commission is investigation new ways of highlighting businesses that only sell food and accessories. According to a new proposal, the city would issue official signs to all pet stores in San Francisco that do not sell live animals. The sign would be placed prominently on the storefront, reminding customers that those businesses have chosen not to engage in that controversial practice.

“The idea would be to highlight and reward the pet stores who have chosen not to sell live animals,” said Ryan Young, the director of the Animal Commission to the San Francisco Examiner.

Representatives for the Pet Industry are opposed to the proposal, claiming that it would unfairly condemn all pet shops.
