Rye Brook, NY is the Latest to Pass a Law Banning the Sale of Commercially Bred Dogs and Cats

At the August 23, 2016 Public Hearing, the Village of Rye Brook unanimously passed a law banning the sale of commercially bred dogs and cats.
Rye Brook became the 5th municipality in New York State to pass this ground-breaking law initiated first by Mamaroneck, NY.  Similar to Mamaroneck, Mt. Pleasant, and Harrison, the Rye Brook law allows 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.”
