NY Puppy Mill Bill Vote - Take Action to SHUT DOWN Puppy Mills!

State lawmakers are considering ending the retail sale of dogs, cats and rabbits in New York pet stores, which would shut down the puppy mill pipeline for good. On Monday the New York State Senate Agriculture Committee will be VOTING on this bill! They need to hear from New Yorkers like you today.  By passing this legislation we can shut down the puppy mill pipeline and ensure that animals from shelters are adopted at New York shops instead of enriching cruel breeders. 


Right now, there are over 2,000 puppies for sale in New York pet stores. Most of these dogs got there through a pipeline of out-of-state breeders and middlemen who ship animals from puppy mills to stores in our communities. Puppies sold in pet stores typically come from commercial breeding operations known as “puppy mills” that are designed to prioritize profit over the well-being of the animals. In these operations, dogs often spend their entire lives in wire crates without adequate shelter, veterinary care, food or socialization. We have a chance to make history by ending this cruelty! 


If you live in New York, please make a quick phone call TODAY to your NY State Senator and Assemblymember, urging them to support and sign on as co-sponsors of  S.1130/A.4283 to keep cruel, out-of-state puppy mills from profiting in New York. The bills are sponsored by Senator Michael Gianaris and Assemblymember Linda Rosenthal.
