City Council Votes Against Requiring 4-Year Warranty for Pet-Store Dogs and Cats




It passed other protections instead.

The city council in Naperville, IL, voted “no” on a measure that would have obliged pet stores to provide a four-year warranty on cats and dogs they sell, the Daily Herald reports.

In the proposal’s place, the council passed an ordinance that makes other changes to animal control in the city.

Addition of the “hereditary and congenital” warranty requirement was an attempt by the council members to establish common ground between two opposing groups, Councilman John Krummen has said. On one side were pet shop owners and on the other were advocates who only want the businesses to offer rescue animals.

Some animal advocates have long pushed for a ban on animals from “puppy mills,” but the council did not take that step.

The ordinance passed by the council adds safeguards against pets being left out during inclement weather and obligates pet shops to promote microchips, according to the Daily Herald.
