Commissioners Vote Unanimously To Ban Unregulated Pet Sales

On Sept. 20, the Fulton County Board of Commissioners UNANIMOUSLY passed an animal ordinance that prohibits the sale of dogs, cats, and domestic rabbits in transient, outdoor locations (such as parking lots and roadsides) in unincorporated Fulton and encourages municipalities within the county to pass the same ordinance.

Fulton County joins four other Georgia jurisdictions that have passed this ordinance: Athens-Clarke, Forsyth, and Hall counties and the city of Gainesville. These lawmakers understand that responsible breeders do not sell their litters to passersby in parking lots and roadsides.

The new Fulton County ordinance banning the outdoor sales of dogs, cats, and domestic rabbits contains the following resolution urging all Fulton cities the adopt the measure: "WHEREAS, the Board of Commissioners also finds it necessary to encourage each of the cities within Fulton County to adopt similar ordinances, banning pet sales at outdoor locations."
