NV: Protect Washoe County pets and consumers

Urge your representatives to enact a retail pet sales ordinance.

The Reno City Council is considering a lifesaving proposal that would prohibit new pet stores from selling animals sourced from commercial breeding mills.

If enacted, this proposal will help put an end to the suffering of countless animals in substandard breeding facilities and reduce killing in area shelters.

TAKE ACTION: Encourage your city/county leaders to support a ban on retail pet sales.

Urge your representatives to enact a retail pet sales ordinance.

Recently, the owners of two Washoe County pet stores were indicted on felony charges involving animal cruelty and illegal veterinary practices.

In response, the Reno City Council is considering a lifesaving proposal that would prohibit new pet stores from selling animals sourced from commercial breeding mills.

If enacted, this proposal will help put an end to the suffering of countless animals in substandard breeding facilities and reduce killing in area shelters.

North Las Vegas, Mesquite and more than 330 cities and counties have already passed laws to ban the retail sale of puppies from inhumane breeding facilities. It's time for Reno and Washoe County to do the same.

Please prohibit irresponsible pet sales

Dear [Decision Maker],

As a resident of Washoe County, I respectfully urge you to enact an ordinance to prevent pet stores from selling dogs, cats and rabbits sourced from inhumane breeding mills.



North Las Vegas, Mesquite and more than 330 other cities and counties (as well as two states) have already passed laws to ban the retail sale of pets from inhumane breeding mills. It's time for Washoe County to do the same.

Thank you in advance for considering this fair and effective measure to protect pets, consumers and taxpayers.

Sincerely,
