Petland To Sue Grove City Over Puppy Mill Ordinance
The pet store chain Petland says it will sue Grove City over a newly-passed ordinance restricting the sale of dogs from puppy mills. Petland executives call it an "anti-business" measure. It forces Petland to buy dogs from only animal shelters and rescue groups, instead of high-volume breeders. The chain recently opened a store in the city, prompting animal rights activists and others to push for the legislation.
