SAN DIEGO — A proposal to ban the retail sale of dogs, cats and rabbits in pet stores and other commercial establishments in San Diego is scheduled to be considered Tuesday by the City Council.

The proposed amendment to the municipal code would make it “unlawful for any person to display, offer for sale, deliver, barter, auction, give away, transfer or sell any live dog, cat or rabbit in any pet shop, retail business or other commercial establishment located in the city of San Diego, unless the dog, cat or rabbit was obtained from a city or county animal shelter or animal control agency, a humane society or a nonprofit rescue organization.”

Pet stores would need to keep certificates that identify the sources of their animals and make them available to animal control officers, law enforcement, code compliance officials or other city employees.
