San Diego, CA, September 15, 2014 - A federal judge in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of California dismissed a lawsuit brought against the Companion Animal Protection Society (CAPS), the City of San Diego, and others, and invited an application for attorneys’ fees and costs.

San Diego Puppy, Inc. brought the lawsuit after CAPS initiated and drafted proposed legislation and then worked closely with the San Diego City Council and other animal nonprofits to pass an ordinance. This ordinance bans the retail sale of pet shop puppies, kittens and rabbits. In 2013, plaintiffs San Diego Puppy pet shop, and its owners David and Veronica Salinas, brought suit in retaliation for CAPS’ efforts to ban the retail sale of companion animals and raise awareness concerning the cruel and inhumane puppy and kitten mills that supply retail pet stores.
