(Long Island,NY) Orchestrating for Nature (LION) is hosting a 2-hour peaceful protest and educational demonstration outside of Worldwide Puppies and Kittens in Bellmore on October 12, 2013 in order to urge Governor Cuomo to sign A.740a/S.3753a, a bill that would allow local municipalities to regulate pet stores. This event will be attended by and is endorsed by two national organizations and several local organizations ranging from Manhattan to Brookhaven.

In 2009, Governor Cuomo came out against Worldwide Puppies and Kittens for ripping off the public and selling seriously sick and dying dogs and cats: http://www.newsday.com/long-island/nassau/pet-store-must-repay-for-selling-expensive-sick-puppies-1.1375480
Today, Worldwide Puppies and Kittens is still in business and up to the same cruel antics, ripping off their customers and selling dogs from the Hunte Corporation, the largest dealer of puppy mill dogs in the world.
Right now, A.740/ S.3753, a bill that would allow local municipalities to regulate pet stores, is sitting on Governor Cuomo's desk just waiting to be signed. This bill has the potential to stop this terrible abuse.
Come join us in asking Governor Cuomo to finish what he started and to sign S.3753 on Saturday, October 12 from noon until 2 pm!
