New Braunfels, TX will convene a meeting of the Animal Services Advisory Board tomorrow, March 3 at 6:00pm to discuss options and recommendations for the development of an ordinance to regulate the sales of dogs within commercial animal establishments. This ordinance could limit pet choice and consumer protections for New Braunfels area families seeking a dog that fits their needs and lifestyle.

Retail pet sales bans/ restrictions limit consumer protections and choice, while doing nothing to actually help dogs.  A better solution is to consider broad consumer protection and cruelty laws that hold all accountable who sell or transport dogs and continuing to allow pet stores to source from all humane sources including from licensed breeders.
