New State Law Bans the Retail Sale of Dogs, Cats, and Rabbits

Governor Hochul has signed a bill banning the retail sale of dogs, cats, and rabbits.

The law goes into effect two years from now.

Advocates say the bill will stop the abusive puppy mill-to-pet store pipeline.

They say these animals have health issues from poor breeding and can cost families thousands of dollars in veterinary care.

The law still allows pet stores to charge rent to display pets for adoption.
