The Los Angeles City Council has proposed a measure that would ban commercial breeding of cats, dogs, rabbits and chickens in the city, outlaw the sale of commercially bred pets in retail stores and charge the city's Department of Animal Services with arranging frequent adoption drives for shelter animals. "It will help us reduce our pet overpopulation problem, and it will save us a significant amount of money," said councilman Paul Koretz, who introduced the measure.
