San Francisco Considering Banning Sales of All Pets


A proposal to ban all pets sales in San Francisco is being considered by the city’s Board of Supervisors.

According to those who have proposed the ban, the rational behind it is twofold. It would encourage San Franciscans to adopt animals from shelters and rescue organization, and it would put an end to what animal rights activists claim are inhumane conditions in puppy mills and kitten factories.

The ban would cover all animals — from fish and hamsters to the aforementioned dogs and cats.

Pet store owners are obviously opposed to the measure, as it would effectively cost them their livlihood.

What do you think?  Do the ban’s proponents have a point?  Or is this just a case of good old-fashioned San Francisco craziness?
