It is illegal to sell, trade, barter, or give pets away without a permit, regardless of where you're trying to sell them.
If you want to sell your pet, please apply for a Litter Permit, as well as a Seller’s Permit. The assigned permit number must be added on to any advertising (this includes online markets like Facebook and La Pulga), notices or displays for sale. You are also required to ensure the babies’ well being and needed vaccinations by giving a health guarantee to any buyers.
Without a permit number, our officers have legal authority to confiscate your pets. Citations from Animal Care Services (ACS) can net hefty fines up to $300 each and state jail time for more heinous violations.
If you see any form of illegal sales taking place, there are multiple ways you can file an anonymous report.
