Carlsbad City Council votes to ban retail pet sales

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - Carlsbad became the largest city to take a stand against puppy mills on Tuesday when the City Council approved a ban on the retail sale of dogs and cats from commercial breeders. 

The ban would not apply to the sale or adoption of cats and dogs from non commercial breeders which include those who sell cats and dogs that were bred and reared on their premises, public animal shelters and animal rescue nonprofit organizations.

Carlsbad currently has one pet store that sells dogs and cats from commercial breeders.

The ordinance goes into effect 30 days after adoption.

CBS News 8's Richard Allyn reports from Carlsbad with the details of the ban.
