"Aurora Ward IV Councilman Charlie Richardson said he would like to end the practice of puppy mill animals being sold to Aurora pet stores. The proposed ordinance, which Richardson said is meant to prohibit the sale of dogs and cats from large scale breeders or “puppy mills” in pet shops in Aurora, would limit where pet shops or dealers could purchase a cat or dog to sell in Aurora. Under the ordinance, a shop or dealer could only purchase a cat or dog from an animal shelter, a private nonprofit humane society or a nonprofit animal rescue."
