Last night (Thursday, March 19), the Palm Springs City Council voted to reschedule consideration of changes to the city’s animal ordinances.
The proposals included restrictions on dog breeding, new and increased fees for dog ownership, new penalties for violating ordinances, and changes to the length the city’s privately-run animal shelter must retain captured animals before it can sell them. Read AKC’s previous alert for more information.
AKC Government Relations will continue to monitor the situation, work closely with the Kennel Club of Palm Springs on this matter, and provide more updates as they are available. For more information, contact AKC GR at firstname.lastname@example.org.
