This week news that West Hollywood will ban pet sales, of all animals that are not from shelters. The City Council voted unanimously Tuesday to ban stores from selling cats and dogs in a move aimed at curbing puppy mills and kitty factories. Pet shops will be permitted, however, to offer animals from shelters. City officials acknowledged the new ordinance would have little bite — no pet stores in the city currently sell animals — but they’re hoping it will have a lot of bark and other municipalities will follow suit.
