Roadside Selling of Dogs is now Illegal

We really need to thank Councilman Strickland who introduced this ordinance. If you want to email and thank him email him at Jim. Strickland@memphisTN.gov So now you can't see dogs being sold at WalMart or on the side of Germantown Parkway without the police being able to issue a fine. They will be charged $50 per animal, court cost, no business licence fees and zone violation fees. This is a huge victory for animals since all of our shelters are overcrowded and these people no longer can make a quick buck. Thanks to everyone that wrote letters and supported this ordinance.

Wow! This is awesome! I wish that was a law here. I cringe when I see vehicles selling puppies.

That's great news. Now if the police enforce it is another story.
