WASHINGTON -- Animal lovers may need to add pets to the growing list of what can’t be purchased in the city of Los Angeles. The Los Angeles City Council will soon consider a motion to ban the retail sale of dogs, cats, and rabbits in city pet stores; a decision is expected in the coming weeks. The Pet Industry Joint Advisory Council (PIJAC) is mobilizing the industry to take action against the ban by creating online resources to assist retailers in getting the word out.
