Save New York’s Pet Stores
While no one is favor of supporting illicit operations who get dogs and kittens from unlicensed puppy mills, there are many honest and respected ethically-run pet stores that could soon be out of business due to a fringe segment of animal rights groups. A bill is on its way to the New York State senate that lumps these legitimate pet stores in with the puppy mill sellers. Please learn more and consider signing this petition.
