City of Encinitas bans sale of puppy mill animals

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – The topic of selling pets produced by commercial breeders or so called “puppy mills” within the Encinitas city limits was a vital topic discussed during the area’s city counsel meeting on Wednesday.

The city is moving forward with the plan to enforce the banning of selling animals from “puppy mills.” Under the ordinance, only dogs, cats, and rabbits from rescues or shelters will be allowed to be sold in stores. 

The city joins Oceanside, San Diego, Chula Vista, and almost 80 other cities across the country to enforce the ban.
