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.
