Ban on Roadside Pet Sales...
There is a Harris County ordinance banning the sale of animals on the side of the road. Like the City of Houston, Harris County has passed the same ordinance banning the sale of puppies or pets on the side of the road. Many of these pets were sitting in the sun with no water, and many were not healthy. Please be sure that no matter where you get your pet, you have it checked out immediately by a veterinarian. Do not expose your other pets to a new pet before it has gotten a clean bill of health. You should ask whoever you buy your pet from, for a grace period to get the pet examined, and if there is a problem you can return the pet and get your money back.
If you see roadside sales, please inform the sheriff's department.
