No, a pet store is already legal in all 50 states, and most jurisdictions require licenses for retail sales. However, in the US, some pet stores have licenses to sell their products to people with disabilities that allow them to engage in activities that are restricted by law. Here’s a breakdown of the pet store license types:
License type(s) General Purpose Pet Store (GPS) Allowing pets to be on the premises Allowed pets to be on the premises but must remain off the premises Allowed pets to be on the premises but must be off the premises Pet stores in a designated area Allowed for dog kennel areas but must not be accessible to customers Pet stores in a designated area Allowed for kennel areas but must not be accessible to customers Pet stores in a designated area with a minimum of 4 dogs Allowed in a kennel and with dogs but not allowed in a main pet shop Allowed in the central pet shop Allowed in the store with a specific number of dogs Allowed in the store with a specific number of dogs but not allowed in a specific pet shop

Why should I be so excited about getting my pet to a pet store?
First, pet owners are the best ambassadors for a pet-friendly world. Having a pet can help a whole community flourish, making everyone more secure. Pets can help keep us all safe from dogs that might want to be around other people, or cats that want to be the only pet living at home. Pets can take care of our aging parents and children, and help us keep the kids active by doing everything from fetching, bathing and walking them to playing fetch with them.
But you’re not just looking for a pet store to buy and sell pets. Pet stores provide great opportunity to get to know your dog. You can visit a local pet store, meet one of the staff or learn something new about your dog! Pet stores provide a place where you can meet your dog’s new best friend, and you can learn about the different kinds (sometimes just one kind) of dogs that live in your neighborhood and their specific breeds.
Pet store owners love it when you see the faces of their animals running around the shop, barking or acting excited to be there. They understand your pets’ excitement at the store as someone has just treated them like family. They love it when you find your dog’s favorite treats or get them a toy
