Banning sales of pets in pet stores

The Richmond Animal Protection Society, who I don’t hear about very often, has announced that they are attempting to stop the sale of pets in pet stores.

The society is pushing for a ban on the sale of all dogs, cats and rabbits by pet stores in Richmond. Meanwhile Richmond City Hall is examining tighter restrictions on pet stores.

I think this is a great move, even if it only serves to draw attention to the terrible irresponsibility of buying and selling animals.

The city councilors of Kelowna should really consider something like banning pets from pet stores instead of hiring people to shoot rabbits.

Will people be able to adopt pets from shelters at the pet stores instead?

Johnathan, I have no doubt that is the case.
