Finally, two other issues often arise with pet sales: pedigreed companion animals and pets purchased over the Internet. The most famous dog registration association, the American Kennel Club, informs readers on its website that a dog’s pedigree does not in and of itself guarantee good health. Buyers of pedigreed dogs are still protected under UCC and state laws governing the sales of pets. , some states make it an additional crime for sellers to knowingly misrepresent a dog’s pedigree or registry. law and some states make it necessary for sellers to provide registration papers upon the sale of pedigreed dogs. Failure to adhere to state and contract laws governing the sale of such pets may entitle the purchaser to rescind the contract. (For a more detailed discussion of the sale of pedigreed dogs, .)

Since the DogBreeders and Sellers Law went into effect in 2011, the Wisconsin Department ofAgriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection (DATCP) had been working tirelesslyinspecting and licensing dog sellers, as well as conducting follow-upinspections and investigating complaints. YOUR help is needed, though: if youhave reason to suspect that any unlicensed breeder is selling more than 25 dogsa year, or are concerned about the conditions in which a breeder/ seller/shelter/ stray hold facility is keeping dogs,! PLEASE NOTE:This form and complaint process are intended for investigation of dog breeders/sellers and other Act 90 licencees only. If you have witnessed animal crueltyin general and wish to report it, please see our page. Allcomplaints will be investigated. With the public's help, DATCP has been able toprosecute at least one notorious "scofflaw" breeder who went"underground" to avoid upgrading her facilities in compliance withthe Dog Breeders and Sellers Law.Legal issues concerning the sale of pets start with two questions: is there a specific sales contract that sets out certain terms of the sale and are there any state laws governing pet sales? Contract law will always apply to the sale of companion animals because the purchase itself constitutes a contract. A seller offers a dog or cat for sale, a buyer accepts the offer, and then pays the seller a determined sum of money. If the seller is a merchant (discussed below), then a buyer of these “goods” has some additional rights if the pet is unfit in some way. While distilling the purchase of what is essentially a new family member down to contractual obligations may seem calloused, it is important for buyers to understand the process. Companion animals, while loved by their owners, have no independent legal status in this country and instead are governed by contract and commercial transaction laws. In fact, due to their unique and valued status, many states have added further laws that protect buyers of companion animals and regulate the pet industry. This Pennsylvania statute comprises the state's Dog Purchaser Protection law. The law mandates disclosure of a dog's health history by a seller (defined as pet shop operator or other individual who sells dogs to the public and who owns or operates a kennel or pet shop licensed by the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture or the United States Department of Agriculture). If, within ten days after the date of purchase, a dog purchased from a seller is determined, through physical examination, diagnostic tests or necropsy by a veterinarian, to be clinically ill or dies from any contagious or infectious illness or any parasitic illness which renders it unfit for purchase or results in its death, the purchaser may exercise one of the described statutory elections.(1) A seller shall provide a purchaser of a dog with a health record for a dog at the time of sale. In addition, the seller shall provide to the purchaser a health certificate issued by a veterinarian within twenty-one days prior to the date of sale for the dog or a guarantee of good health issued and signed by the seller. The health record supplied by the seller shall set forth the following:
