Whenever an application is made for a license to do business in the City and County of San Francisco, or a renewal of such license, and the business is a pet shop, a circus, an animal exhibit, or an enterprise which maintains animals in the course of business, the Tax Collector shall, before issuance or reissuance of the license, notify the Director of Animal Control. The Director of Animal Control shall promptly and within a reasonable time ascertain whether or not the owner of the animals is in conformity with the provisions of Article 1, Chapter V, Part II, Municipal Code (Health Code), and notify the Tax Collector of his findings. If the owner is in conformity with such provisions, the license may be issued; but if the owner is in violation of said Article, the license may not be issued or reissued until the condition causing the violation has been corrected as determined in a subsequent inspection.
