WARRANT ARTICLE 14
Amend the General By-Laws to ban the sale of mammals, birds, reptiles, and amphibians in pet shops within the Town
This article would ban the sale of mammals, birds, reptiles, and amphibians in pet shops within The Town. Importantly, it only applies to pet shops, not breeders or animal shelters. It would, however, allow pet shops to partner with animal shelters in order to display animals for adoption, so long as the pet shop does not make any income off of the adoption of said animals. As such, this bylaw will foster the more humane treatment of animals within The Town: not only by shifting the market away from inhumane shops that source animals from irresponsible breeders, but also by encouraging consumers to source animals from responsible breeders, and animal shelters.
