Deputy Presiding Officer Jay Schneiderman and Legislator William Spencer, M.D. will hold a press conference on June 3, 2014 to discuss proposed changes to a local law regulating pet shops and pet dealers. They will be meeting with members of various animal advocacy groups, including Companion Animal Protection Society (CAPS), and pet store owners to show support for the amendment before it reaches the floor for a final vote on Tuesday. The Government Operations, Personnel, Housing & Consumer Protection Committee already unanimously approved the bill on May 28. The bill will be the first of its kind in New York State, following a recently signed state law authorizing municipalities to adopt stricter local regulations for pet dealers.
The most important provision in Introductory Resolution 1047-14 prohibits pet shops from purchasing animals from questionable breeders with violations on their most recent USDA report.

When: Tuesday, June 3, 2014 at 9:00 AM
Where: Suffolk County Legislature; William H. Rodgers Building; 725 Veterans Memorial Highway, Hauppauge 11788

Summary:
On April 30, 2014, CAPS held a cocktail party at the Seaport Hotel and World Trade Center to celebrate the launch of our “Models Against Pet Shops and Puppy Mills” ad campaign in all of the MBTA commuter trains and at 20 stations in Boston. Even though I had to share the spotlight with ALL of my bratty brothers (Spencer, Wylie, and Oliver), that didn’t stop me from being CAPS’ fabulous spokesmodel. I had so much fun! Hopefully, Mother will be organizing more cocktail parties in the near future.
