Public Meeting on Puppy Mill Bill - Riverhead - 4/29/14

Wednesday April 23, 2014
Suffolk County Legislator Jay Schneiderman will soon present his Suffolk County Pet Dealer Bill. Although New York State will not allow a full ban on the retail sale of companion animals, this bill will make it more difficult for pet dealers. If you support this bill which will ease the existence of dogs in puppy mills, you should come to the public meeting on Tuesday, April 29, 2014 at 9:30 a.m. at the Riverhead Legislative Auditorium - Suffolk County Legislature, Evans K. Griffin Building, 300 Center Drive in RIverhead, New York.

For more information, please call (631) 852-1700.
