A Tennessee Department of Agriculture inspector has suggested that the license for The Pet Company store in Hamilton Place be suspended.
Inspector Joe Burns re-visited the store a week after more than 30 animals were removed due to unsafe conditions.
The store received 43 citations that contained 90 violations during a June 15 inspection in which the McKamey Animal Care and Adoption Center confiscated dogs and an assortment of rabbits and hamsters.
A hearing is taking place today in Chattanooga City Court to examine the violations and determine whether the animals should be returned to the store or stay with McKamey.
