This is a draft of an application to legally advertise an animal for sale under our proposed regulation. It is designed to discourage or ELIMINATE a backyard breeder or puppymill operator from placing an animal(s) for sale ad. In order to place an ad, the applicant would be required to be completely transparent by registering and providing a corresponding sales tax number.
The enforcement mechanism is that penalties would be for ACCEPTING ads from unregistered pet sellers.
We expect very few if anyone will comply and that means there would be practically NO permits issued for animal sales. We do expect compliance with the law by reputable websites or publications that will no longer be allowed to accept unregistered advertisements.
We welcome feedback on this proposed application designed to deter or ELIMINATE “Pets For Sale” advertising by those operating in the underground economy.
NO SALES TAX NUMBER AND REGISTRATION = NO ADS, NO ADS = NO SELLING, NO SALES = NO PROFITS, NO PROFITS = MUCH LESS BACKYARD/PUPPYMILL BREEDING!
