Where can I get a Lion/Giraffe/Monkey?

By BigCat - Posted on 21 February 2009

There are dealers for almost any animal you can think of.
But BEFORE you worry about finding the animal you want, you need to make sure that the laws in your area allow you to have it, and that you can properly care for the animal.

King County WA--regarding pet business announcements

By Julie - Posted on 15 January 2010

KING COUNTY TO HOLD PUBLIC HEARING AND VOTE ON PET BUSINESS REGULATIONS
** Hearing and Vote on January 21st **
 
The Issue.
The King County, Washington Board of Health has updated proposed regulations for pet-related businesses, which were originally proposed last year and held public meetings on in August throughout the county.  The amended proposed regulations set for hearing on January 21st take the originally proposed regulations, which were written in three sections 1) pet shops and pet food retailer 2) pet daycare, commercial kennels, groomers and animal shelters and 3) permit requirements and fees, and interposes all three rules into one rule for pet shops, pet daycare, commercial kennels, groomers and animal shelters. Regulations for pet food retail shops are also included in this updated version, in earlier versions no language was presented for these retailers just placeholders.
