Provides that pet shop operators may offer a dog, cat, or rabbit for sale only if the pet shop operator has obtained the dog, cat, or rabbit from an animal control facility, animal shelter, animal care facility, kennel, pound, or training facility operated by a subdivision of local, State, or federal government or a specified animal rescue organization. Provides that a pet shop operator shall not offer for sale a dog, cat, or rabbit that is younger than 8 weeks old. Provides that a pet shop operator shall maintain specified records of each dog, cat, or rabbit sold. Provides for civil penalties for each violation of the provisions.
