Lorianne Pagano never knew about puppy mills. Her first experience with puppy mill dogs was the hardest. In 2003, her husband purchased for her a little Brussels Griffon puppy from a pet store in Amityville, NY. They were delighted with their new

New Yorkers! You need to write your Senators and ask them to support this bill. If you don’t know your senator, here is a handy link to the New York State Senate for you to Find Your Senator.

They want to hear from you! Call, email, write, call, email, write, post on their facebook, call, email, write – you get it. This is important. Wanna put a dent into the puppy mill and pet dealer operations for the State of New York? Start calling. This bill will go nowhere if the residents of New York don’t start peppering their senators for support. And that includes all New York rescue organizations and their volunteers.

What's horrible about puppy mills is that if you refuse to purchase dogs from pet stores, you're punishing living, breathing creatures; however, if you do buy them, then you are supporting the mills and encouraging them to continue their horrendous practices. It's a terrible catch 22 that really needs to be fixed on the federal level.

The best way to show legislators that animal protection is an important issue, is for animal advocates to communicate with their elected officials.
Legislators do care what constituents (voters) think about issues. After all, elected officials generally want to be re-elected, and that means adequately addressing matters important to their constituents.

Please contact your state senator and state representative and ask that they support the following bills.

Hope the shutdown of 'puppy mill' breeders can be accomplished.

Thank you Cher. It's hard to believe that after all the campaigning against and bad press that's been spread over years and years, puppy mills are not only still around but seem to be on the increase. More legislative protection for animals is badly needed.

How come I have not heard of this before! Wrote to my senators and looking into attending the June animal advocacy... if anyone is interested there is a Humane Lobby Day April 18th in Albany, NY sponsored by HSUS. You can lookup info on their website or FB page.

I totally support ending the existence of puppy mills and understand the idea behind returning puppies but honestly I am pretty sure I could not bring a puppy back to a store because s/he was sick. I don't go into pet stores because I don;t like them but also because I can not stand to see the puppies there. I hope that this law, if passed, will help though. I do not live in NY so can not sign but something must be done.
I am sorry for the death of Charlemagne and all the other dogs who die because of the greed and cruelty by puppy millopwners.
