Leading industry organizations join forces to overturn pet sale ban

Four industry organizations have joined together to support a pending lawsuit that challenges the prohibition of the sale of cats and dogs by pet stores in Phoenix, AZ, in hopes of preventing this ban and the passage of future bans. 

The American Pet Products Association (APPA), the Pet Industry Joint Advisory Council (PIJAC), the Pet Industry Distributors Association (PIDA) and the World Pet Association (WPA) have collectively donated $125,000 to support the lawsuit brought into the U.S. District Court in Phoenix on behalf of Phoenix pet store, Puppies 'N Love. 

"Bans of this nature often punish stores and breeders who sell quality pets and breeds that are unavailable in shelters, and these restrictions threaten our industry," said APPA President and CEO, Bob Vetere. "By working together to help overturn these types of bans, we can use this opportunity to establish better standards for both breeders and pet stores."
