A national animal rights group has launched an investigation into the newly opened I Heart Puppies shop in Corona del Mar.
The store, which opened Friday, may have puppies for sale that come from “an egregious violator of the Animal Welfare Act,” said Carole Davis, West Coast director for the Companion Animal Protection Society. She declined to say how she obtained her evidence, but she said it includes undercover video footage of the breeder’s facility and “is not hearsay.”

Legislation introduced by Majority Leader Jon Cooper (D-Lloyd Neck) would ban the retail sale of puppies from puppy mills, thus compelling pet stores in Suffolk to sell only dogs that come from animal shelters, rescue organizations or responsible, county-based breeders that can show the puppies' mother is on the premises.
Violators would be fined $500 or $1,000 per puppy, according to a draft of the legislation.
