The West Hollywood City Council unanimously approved an ordinance to ban the sale of cats and dogs Monday evening. However, although some are saying it's final, the city, per law, must vote and approve the ordinance a second time at its February 16th meeting, when it is expected to pass. The period between the first and second votes allows time for people who have a legal reason to contest the ordinance to file an action in court. The ban seeks to eliminate the demand for puppy mill and kitten factory bred companion pets.
