Hermosa Beach considers ban on dog, cat sales

March 23, 2010 12:00:00 AM PDT
The city of Hermosa Beach is considering a ban on dog and cat sales at local pet stores. The city council will consider the proposed ban Tuesday night. It's not believed any pet stores in the city currently sell dogs or cats.West Hollywood approved a similar ordinance last month. The West Hollywood City Council approved the measure in a move aimed at curbing puppy mills and kitten factories.

If Hermosa Beach approves a similar ban, the city would still allow veterinarians to arrange for pet adoptions in the city.
