Kingston approves bylaw to ban pet sales from pet stores

EMC News – It may sound like a strange contradiction – stopping pet stores from selling popular household pets.

But animal welfare advocates are applauding Kingston’s new bylaw that bans the sale of cats, dogs and rabbits unless those animals come solely from shelters or rescue agencies.

“We are a little town but we’re making some big moves here,” beamed Jessica Hellard with the group Kingston Animal Rescue.

“We think it’s the most progressive (bylaw) in Canada and that’s putting Kingston on the map for it.”

With no debate at their July 16 meeting, councillors voted 9-2 to make Kingston one of only a few cities in Canada to ban the retail sale of cats, dogs and rabbits from unsourced suppliers. The measure is designed to put the bite on illegal breeders, eliminate so-called impulse buying of pets, and reduce the city’s pet over-population.  Read More

Dying guardian hopes to find home for two senior dogs before she is gone

Two elderly dogs in the Dallas, Texas, area will soon be losing their beloved guardian who is dying from stage 4 pancreatic cancer.

The dogs’ guardian shared the following plea for her long-time companions:

Jess and Daisy have been with me since they were pups and are absolutely the loves of my life. But I’m really desperate and need your help.

They’re good, good dogs and will give someone countless love and devotion in their waning years. Please help if you can. Thank you.


The dogs, “Jess,” a 14-year-old male, and “Daisy,” a 13-year-old female, have just a few, short months before their person is gone.
