UPDATE 10/4/2013 @ 11:00 AM
I am very proud to say that Shakopee City Council has unanimously passed a Pet Store License Ordinance for the City of Shakopee! This license has stricter cleanliness requirements and gives more ability to handle and/or shut down pet stores that are not treating animals humanely.
The ordinance passed with no changes. Thank you to the business owners and concerned citizens for your hard work and help crafting an ordinance that protects animals but gives latitude to companies to conduct business!
Thank you and have a great day!!
