The city of Burbank, California appears to be joining Los Angeles and other local cities in banning pet stores from selling pets that come from breeders. In fact, the Burbank law, which if it receives final approval in a few weeks, goes even further than the Los Angeles law in that it prohibits the sale of animals from both commercial and hobbyist breeders.
The Burbank City Council voted 4-1 to give initial approval to the ban that would cover the retail sale of dogs and cats. If/when finalized, the law will provide for a 6-month transition period to allow pet store owners to make the necessary adjustments.
