Little Shop Of Horrors, Puppy Mill Parlor in Lisle. The back room is filled with dogs in cages that never go outside. Ever. The screaming alone in this place would make any person’s skin crawl. I heard it just last week when a kid, oh around 15 years old, had the back door open. Imagine how scared the dogs are. How much blood has been wiped up in that back room? How many dead dogs have been in that back room? They have scary days everyday. Everyday is a nightmare. Everyday is worse than yesterday. Everyday is Halloween for them.
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.
