Support Florida Bills S.0470 & S.0674 sign now

I strongly support S 0470: Relating to Purchase of Dogs & Cats and S 0674: Relating to Licensing Pet Dealers.

I am very concerned about dogs and cats that are sold through pet dealers in the State of Florida. But more importantly, I am concerned about consumers in the State of Florida who are consistently being misled and ripped off by dishonest pet dealers.

Because of a provision in the current law, pet dealers can have every customer waive his or her right to return their dog or cat for a congenital or hereditary disorder not disclosed at the time of purchase. There is also no provision or penalty if a pet dealer does not provide the promised registration papers. S.0470 will close these loopholes, providing better consumer protection.

S.0470 will also require that every dog or cat sold within the State be accompanied with an Animal-Purchase Disclosure. This will make it harder for dishonest pet dealers to mislead customers about the health of their animals or where the animals came from, an all too common practice.

S.0674 will require that every pet dealer be licensed in the State of Florida and be inspected at least once annually. When interviewed, Florida Attorney General Charlie Crist recently said, Having an inspection that just makes sure pets are treated humanely -- even in a store -- how would you oppose that? Or why would you oppose something like that?"

If you have not already done so, please cosponsor this important bill and do all that you can to ensure it passes this year.
