About a year ago, the Clark County Commissioners established a law prohibiting the selling of small animals in shops. It became operative on December 20th.

The goal of the regulation is to stop the illegal breeding of dogs and to clean up the local animal shelters, the majority of which are constantly overflowing with stray and abandoned dogs and cats.

Commissioner Michael Naft was the one who supported the bill. According to him, the County is willing to assist with any animals that shopkeepers may still have in their establishments.

According to Naft, it will assist in placing them through the NSPCA or nearby shelters.
