Summary:
Orange County mega-developer the Irvine Co. has decided to stop renting space to stores that sell cats and dogs. Other animals, such as birds, fish and reptiles, weren't included in the decision.

 

"Effective immediately, the Irvine Co. will not lease space in any of its centers to tenants that intend to sell dogs or cats," spokeswoman Erin Freeman said in an email. "The Irvine Co. will honor its existing contractual commitments with Russo's until the expiration of current lease terms."
