PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL:
To limit the number of animals under
the care of any one person or business in order to help curtail the abusive treatment that dogs and cats sometimes receive from pet dealers and breeders.
Currently, New York law does not limit the number of animals a breeder may have. Some breeders have hundreds, and even thousands of animals. The conditions in which such animals live are often very poor. Such animals lack proper food, water, shelter, and veterinary care. Some animals live their entire lives within a cage, loosing the ability to walk. A common term for places that use abusive
dog breeding practices is "puppy mills."
This legislation limits the number of dogs or cats that have intact sexual organs and are over the age of four months that a breeder may
own at one time to fifty. The effective date of one hundred eighty days gives owners ample time to comply with the amended law. However,
should a breeder be in violation of the new law, this legislation provides that a police officer or certain agents or officers may take
possession of animals kept in violation of such law and the offspring of such animals, provided a proper warrant is issued by any magistrate
authorized to issue warrants in criminal cases.
The goal of this legislation is to limit the number of animals used for breeding in order to help ensure that dogs and cats will be treated more humanely by pet dealers and those who are breeders, and that people who purchase dogs or cats will receive a companion animal that is healthy.
