Urge Dallas City Council to Protect Public Health & Safety of Texas Consumers

Texas citizens should be extremely concerned that the Dallas Mayor and Dallas City Council Members would consider making biased opinions become law, forever targeting legal, licensed business owners and prohibiting a business model that makes access to purpose-bred, health-tested pets for consumers who prefer to purchase their pets from a retail pet store.

ORDINANCE TO BAN THE SALE OF PUPPIES AND KITTENS SOURCED FROM

LICENSED BREEDERS IS BEING CONSIDERED BY DALLAS CITY COUNCIL IN TEXAS!


This ORDINANCE is a biased piece of legislation which lacks credible data and verifiable statistics to back up its claims.


  • Texas citizens should be extremely concerned that the Dallas Mayor and Dallas City Council Members would consider making biased opinions become law, forever targeting legal, licensed business owners and prohibiting a business model that makes access to purpose-bred, health-tested pets for consumers who prefer to purchase their pets from a retail pet store.


  • Legislation that promotes a "pet sale ban" is really a coercive mandate that pet stores comply with the animal rights organizations' demand that pet stores source their puppies and kittens from UNREGULATED, UNLICENSED, AND UNINSPECTED rescues and shelters while also removing consumer choice.
  • The CDC reports that approximately 1 million dogs have been imported for resale by 501-C3 "Non-Profit" shelter and rescue operations in 2019 alone. These animals have been proven to have a lack proper health clearances before being brought into the US, and have been imported into the U.S. such diseases as brucellosis, rabies, screw worm, several Asiatic tick species that cause disease in cattle, distemper, and multiple variations of influenza viruses.
  • This Dallas ORDINANCE imposes a very serious threat to the public health and safety of Texas citizens by MANDATING the sale of animals from an unregulated source, while banning legal, licensed sources of pets to sell.

This DALLAS ORDINANCE advances the animal rights agenda to create a monopoly on sales from state-sponsored shelter-rescue pets over pets from breeders in the private sector.  


  • This ORDINANCE is not about protecting Consumers. There are sufficient laws already on the books that protect Consumers from fraudulent sales tactics.
  • This ORDINANCE is not about protecting animals. There are more than enough laws and regulations surrounding the care and welfare standards of breeding animals all over the country.
  • This ORDINANCE is about attacking small business, and is yet another attempt to create a monopoly for Shelters and Rescues in the state of Texas.
Please take a moment to send EACH MEMBER OF THE DALLAS CITY COUNCIL an email to OPPOSE this proposed ORDINANCE to impose a rescue mandate which puts Texas citizens at risk of safety and public health concerns.
