The owners of two pet stores made their first appearance in Reno District Court to face charges of Practicing Veterinary Medicine Without a License.

The attorneys for Michael Schneider and Leilani Tau-Schneider informed Judge Scott Freeman they would be filing a writ of habeus corpus. Judge Freeman then entered not guilty pleas for Schneider and Tau-Schneider.

Schneider is facing four counts of Practicing Veterinary Medicine Without a License. Tau-Schneider is three counts of Practicing Veterinary Medicine Without a License and one count of Felony Torturing and/or Killing an Animal.

The couple owns Puppies Plus on South Virginia Street in Reno and Puppy Love on Sparks Boulevard in Sparks. The Reno City Council is holding a special meeting on Thursday, September 19, 2019 to determine if the business license for Puppies Plus should be revoked.
