  • We have to stop animal cruelty. It is VERY serious. We know dogs suffer and they suffer tremendously in the hands of animal abusers.

  • Stopping puppy sales almost sounds “Un American.” Local breeders could become certified to an acceptable standard. Some limitations as to how many are bred locally. Pressure should be put on Albany to do similar state wide legislation and, to outlaw interstate trafficing.

    As to our shelters, yes, people should try their local area shelters first. When they adopt more dogs, then the supply and demand side of retailers that sell puppies will force their inventory levels down.

  • Mills are at best slave camps where animals exist for the profit of people. we are better than this. every animal bred in a mill is one more that will never make it out of the shelter… that is unless that mill animal is later bred. then its many many animals that will never make it out of the shelter. is this why we domesticated dogs and cats ? so that we can abandon them in shelters, breed them for profit, and torture them in mills ? please pass this ban !!!

  • i get what your saying but people are not checking the shelters first. they are checking the shops and being lied to about the conditions at the breeding facilities and sold hugely expensive animals with health problems due to inbreeding and severe lack of health care at the mills. local in home breeders that are licensed are currently held to specific standards and DO NOT sell to pet shops to resell the animals.

  • Please support this ban. No matter what you hear, this will not affect REPUTABLE breeders, as they do not sell to pet stores. 99% of pet stores dogs come from revolting puppy mills. This is a FACT. This trend is gathering momentum across the country and stores selling puppies will eventually have to go humane or go away.

  • Animal abuse (large-scale commercial breeding), pet overpopulation/the killing of millions of innocent family pets and consumer fraud are all “Un American.” Nothing in the Constitution provides for any of these things. The bottom line is, it’s inhumane for dogs to be caged up for life churning out puppies. Only puppy factories can fill the demand at pet stores and still profit, that’s why these bans are necessary.
