State inspectors to visit pet stores during holidays
An article at TCPalm.com details plans by the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services to send inspectors in to pet stores this holiday season. The inspectors will be looking to ensure compliance with Florida's animal sales laws in section 828.29, Florida Statutes, aka Florida's pet lemon law. The law imposes a number of requirements on pet sellers and potential buyer's rights if pets are unhealthy. According to the article, those who have questions about the law, are advised to call 1-800-HELPFLA (1-800-435-7352) or (850) 410-0900.
