Animal advisory group wants supes to take down puppy mills 

The Commission of Animal Welfare and Control, The City’s lead advisory council on animal issues, wants the Board of Supervisors to draft legislation barring the sale of dogs and cats at pet stores.

At its meeting on Thursday, the commission could take action on drafting a (non-binding) recommendation that the Board of Supervisors adopt an ordinance stopping the sale or transfer of dogs and cats at companion animal stores.

The legislation would mirror similar measures in Hollywood and other California communities, according to commission documents. The ordinance would specifically target “puppy mills”— housing tracts where young animals are forced to live in cramped conditions until a buyer for them is found.
