Allow Home-Based Pet Sitting in Gainesville!

Target: The Plan Board of Gainesville, FL, USA
Sponsored by: Bruce Baber

Bruce Baber has been attempting to regain the ability to sit dogs in his home at 1713 NW 7th Ave., Gainesville, FL since April 29th, 2010.  A City Code forbids the keeping of animals other than one’s own pets in a residential neighborhood within Gainesville.  The City Commission, on July 21st, 2011, voted 4-3 to approve the proposed code change, but there is still opposition, and the matter will have to be approved by the City’s Plan Board, and voted on, once again, by the City Commission.  Therefore, it is very important that the City perceives that there is continuing support for Bruce, and thus, support for the dog loving citizens of Gainesville, many of whom would like to similarly serve dogs and their owners, and provide for themselves in this time of extreme economic hardship.  Please help Bruce regain the ability to perform his valuable and much needed service and enable others to do so, too.  Go to: to get the full story.

    Sounds like he will become a legal dog hoarder?
    If not, let him be licensed, insured and regulated like a normal kennel operation!!!!!
    Just like people selling flowers on the corner, no regulations, no insurance, no licenses, no overhead costs???
    He will help place legal business out of operations!!!!
