Senator Grisanti Continues Push for Stronger Animal Cruelty Laws by Urging Governor to Sign Bill Tha

Senator Mark Grisanti (R, I – Buffalo) today has renewed his call for a crack down on puppy mills by urging Governor Cuomo to sign into law Bill S.3753, which would allow forward-thinking local governments to regulate commercial pet breeders and pet stores.

The legislation addresses the ineffectiveness of New York’s “Pet Dealer” law, the proliferation of unregulated dog breeders in the state and the pet industry’s complicit support of inherently cruel, out-of-state puppy mills.

“New York State appears to be the only home-rule state in the country that explicitly prohibits its towns and cities from regulating commercial pet breeders and pet stores,” Grisanti said, backed by area leaders in the fight against pet abuse. ”I am calling on the Governor to pass this piece of legislation so that New York can effectively regulate puppy mills, and put an end to abusive breeding techniques.”
