The Companion Animal Protection Society is eagerly awaiting for Gov. Andrew Cuomo to sign A.740-A/S.3753-A. Local governments in New York State will finally be allowed to regulate pet dealers and fight the puppy mill cycle in their neighborhoods. The bill will close a gap in state law that left animals and consumers unprotected. For far too long, municipalities have been unable to fight puppy mills through meaningful legislation.

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.

Others rushed passed us towards the barricades, bravely towards the real criminals, the police–the state.
