Proposed bill to ban the sale of animals in stores in Spain

article  BA

THE Spanish government is considering banning the sale of animals in pet stores.

article-2552741-1B3A374600000578-947_634x420PSOE, Podemos, and Ciudadanos are proposing that people acquire their pets through catalogues from breeders with proper legal permits rather than buying them from a store.

The law is meant to prevent the impulsive purchase of pets that is thought to contribute to the alarmingly high pet abandonment rate in Spain.

Opponents of the proposal cite the negative effects such a law would have on small businesses and pet stores.
