Mt. Pleasant, NY also passes puppy mill ban law!

On March 22, 2016, Mount Pleasant became the 2nd municipality in New York State to ban the sale of commercially bred dogs and cats.  Following Mamaroneck’s ground-breaking law, Mount Pleasant used the same language in their law allowing for Pet Stores to sell dogs or cats that were obtained only from “…an animal shelter or a humane society located in the County of Westchester, or a nonprofit rescue and humane organization registered with the New York State Department of Agriculture.”

Here’s the Law:
