The New York State Senate passed a bill to ban the sale of certain animals at retail establishments on Tuesday.
The bill was approved by a vote of 47-13.
If made law, it would prohibit the sale of dogs, cats, and rabbits at pet shops and work with other organizations to “showcase cats or dogs owned by certain entities for the purpose of adoption.”
The bill will now go before the New York State Assembly.
