It took protesters from the Companion Animal Protection Society (CAPS) 13 months, but "Store Closing" signs appeared in Puppy Parlor's windows on 1/18. Have protestors' efforts - to educate potential victims of the risks of buying a sick puppy mill puppy from this establishment - been successful? Has Puppy Parlor realized their animal abuse, animal cruelty, and consumer fraud is not welcome in Lisle? Evidence suggests the answers to these questions are, "Yes." In time we'll know for sure.

Albany, N.Y. - On Thursday, January 9, 2014, Governor Andrew Cuomo signed A.740-A/S.3753-A or the “puppy mill bill” into law. The new legislation, which the New York State legislature passed last summer, will allow local governments, like New York City, to enact stricter laws regarding pet dealers. Municipalities in New York will now be able to pass ordinances like those sponsored by the Companion Animal Protection Society in California, Illinois, and Florida.
