LAS VEGAS (AP) - The Las Vegas City Council is banning the sale of animals from so-called “puppy mills,” or breeders who raise a large number of animals for sale, often in unpleasant conditions.

KSNV-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1THvZiB ) that the council on Wednesday approved the ordinance that stops pet stores from selling puppies, kittens and piglets obtained by puppy mills.

Existing pet stores will have two years to comply. They will have to sell animals from shelters, rescue operations, or humane societies.
