Toronto may follow Richmond on pet ban

Richmond's pioneering pet bylaw restricting the sale of dogs and rabbits at pet shops has inspired Toronto city council to consider something similar.

Toronto council will vote on restricting pet store sales to dogs and cats sourced from shelters, humane societies and certified breeders only.

If it passes at a June 14 vote, Toronto will become just the second Canadian city to restrict animal sales in pet shops. Toronto’s licensing committee recommended council pass the bylaw.
