Ban needed

Doggie World debacle prompts Langley City to consider ban on pet stores.

The City may also look at new regulations for current pet stores with respect to the welfare of the puppies and keeping records as to where their puppies are coming from, said the SPCA.

“The City has moved very quickly on this and we are immensely pleased. It is our hope to present two bylaws for council’s consideration at their Jan. 25 meeting. If it passes, this could be a trickle effect for other municipalities,” said Marcie Moriarty, general manager of cruelty investigations for the SPCA.

The SPCA official opposes the sale of animals in pet stores. In a recent statement, Langley’s animal shelter recommends that if people wish to buy a puppy instead of a shelter dog, they should ask for full disclosure documents about the dog’s background and temperament.
