The Las Vegas, Nevada City Council is expected to consider reversing its pet sales restriction at its Wednesday, November 1st meeting. Area residents are strongly encouraged to contact the Las Vegas City Council to support Bill 2017-40, which would repeal the law prohibiting pet shops from selling or disposing of dogs, cats or potbellied pigs other than those obtained from an animal care facility or nonprofit animal rescue organization.

Last week, the United States Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) Animal Care division announced an extension of the comment period for public input on possible updates to Animal Welfare Act licensing requirements.
