Pet stores in the West Village have instituted a policy banning customers from purchasing pets while intoxicated, according to DNAInfo.com.
Le Petit Puppy and Citipups on Christopher Street are surrounded by bars and clubs, whose patrons often saunter into the pet shops after a few drinks.
Both stores refuse to let customers pay or play with puppies if they’re inebriated, due to bad experiences with returned animals.
