New York could ban retail sale of dogs, cats across the state

For sale no more.

New York could be one step closer to banning retail pet shops as soon as 2021. A bill proposed in New York State Senate would prevent dogs, cats, or rabbits from being sold in a retail environment in New York.

Deputy Senate Leader Mike Gianaris said Monday that the state would join Maryland and California and hundreds of municipalities nationwide that have taken a stand to outlaw sales of those pets, according to CNYCentral.

They note that the Humane Society, and New York State Animal Protections Federation both support the legislation.
