Headlines City Council Votes Against Requiring 4-Year Warranty for Pet-Store Dogs and Cats Published 2 years ago on June 20, 2018 By PETS+ Staff Share Tweet It passed other protections instead.

On one side were pet shop owners and on the other were advocates who only want the businesses to offer rescue animals.
