Legislation Passed To Protect Animals, Consumers

Assemblywoman Nicole Malliotakis (R,C-Brooklyn, Staten Island) issued the following statement on the passage of Assembly bill 697-D:
June 6, 2012

The recent passage of this bill, of which I am a co-sponsor, is good news for animals and consumers alike. By improving living conditions and increasing exercise and health requirements for animals owned by pet dealers, our furry friends will be protected from the sub-standard arrangements many animals are subjected to. In addition, this ensures that pet buyers will be purchasing happy, healthy pets to join their families. I applaud my colleagues in the Assembly for seeing this common-sense bill through.

***Note: The bill will now be delivered to the Senate***
