JUPITER, FL — Final reading of an ordinance to ban the selling cats and dogs from pet stores to prevent customers from buying pets from puppy mills is scheduled for a vote at Tuesday’s town council meeting. There are no pet shops in the town that sell dogs and cats.


Legislators may also vote to adopt the Protect Our Pets Act, whose intent is to ensure that dogs and cats are treated humanely and that no dogs sold or bred locally are the products of puppy mills.
