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.
