Update—September 8, 2020: Despite strong opposition from Pasco County constituents, today Pasco County Commissioners voted to adopt a flawed law that unfortunately won’t stop the retail sale of puppies in pet stores.
Pasco County deserves better! A law that clearly prohibits the retail sale of dogs and cats in pet stores—while permitting legitimate adoptions on site—is the only sure way to shut down the puppy mill pipeline into Pasco County for good.
It’s our understanding that the County may consider closing these problematic loopholes in the near future. Join our Advocacy Brigade to stay updated.
