Leaders in Delray Beach want to make sure dogs and cats you buy in the city don't come from puppy mills.

Tuesday night commissioners are expected to pass rules banning pet stores from selling dogs or cats unless the animals come from shelters or rescue groups.

There is only one pet store in Delray Beach.

The owner of Waggs to Riches says breeders are highly regulated and this law won't impact puppy mills.
