New York Attorney General Urges Passage of Anti-Puppy Mill Regulations

The New York Attorney General’s Office has sent a letter to the state’s municipalities and county governments urging them to pass pet dealer/puppy mill regulations within their jurisdictions. Brian Shapiro, New York state director for The Humane Society of the United States issued the following statement:

“Dogs and cats bred for the commercial pet trade are often raised in neglectful, substandard conditions and we encourage New York’s cities, towns and counties to pass legislation regulating pet dealers in their local communities. This is a great opportunity to take advantage of the Attorney General’s offer to help draft sound, enforceable laws that protect our pets and consumers. We applaud Attorney General Schneiderman’s continued commitment to protecting the welfare of animals in New York State.”
