The Broome County Humane Society, The Humane Society of the United States and several other animal advocate groups have issued statements praising a new Puppy Mill ban in New York State.

January 10, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo signed the legislation giving municipalities the power to create their own laws regulating the pet industry.

Local officials say the new law will close gaps that made it hard to shut out irresponsible breeders while not harming legitimate breeding operations.

The ordinance says local laws must be as strict as the state’s restriction but cannot ban selling dogs and cats that are raised and cared for in a safe and healthy way.
