Thanks to A.740-A/S.3753-A, municipalities like New York City will be able to enact ordinances banning the retail sale of pet shop puppies, kittens, and rabbits and requiring stores to offer only shelter or rescue animals for adoption. CAPS' New York director is already working with legislators in Suffolk, Nassau, and Westchester counties to draft ordinances.
CAPS, along with other animal advocate groups, worked hard to get this bill through the NYS legislature. Local communities demanded the ability to regulate pet dealers in their backyards and A.740-A/S.3753-A is the answer. Assemblymember Linda B. Rosenthal and Senator Mark Grisanti demonstrated their commitment to animal welfare by making this landmark bill possible.

San Diego is the 32nd city to ban the retail sale of puppy mill pets. The new pet store ban will restrict retail stores from selling animals from potentially irresponsible breeders. The new law now requires retailers to work with city or county animal shelters, human societies and nonprofit rescue groups in place of puppy mill breeders. Pet stores will be required to have documentation for each pet.
