This will subject them to state regulation for the first time. These owners then seek to sell pets as quickly as possible and house their animals in unsafe and unsanitary conditions without adequate food or care. The number of licensed pet dealers in NY has declined almost 40 percent over the past five years showing just how troublesome this loophole really is.

Just days after the deadly protests in Charlottesville, Virginia this past weekend, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo (D) signed legislation that would increase penalties against those who make false bomb threats against community centers.

The bill would require not-for-profit shelters to pay a $100 registration fee and abide by state documentation and vaccination requirements for the import of dogs and cats into NY. NYSDAM will also be given additional authority to review and craft necessary regulations to govern these organizations.

"This is a public safety bill", Sen.

"We're seeing more and more of this and this is one way for us to be able to crack down on those bad actors", Post said. We now have little to no information about the animals that are being brought into the state and this will help us get a handle on the situation.

The governor signed Monday, saying it's now more important than ever to stand together against bias and hate. "This will now bring NY in line with the many other states across the country that have already put into place basic registration requirements".

This legislation was in direct response to the significant number of bomb threats called into Jewish Community Centers in NY and across the country. "The ASPCA commends Senator Boyle and Assemblymember Zebrowski for their efforts to improve animal protection laws in the state, and we thank Governor Cuomo for signing this legislation".

A growing number of people around NY have adopted pets from shelters or rescue organizations only to find out later they had diseases as a result of overbreeding or unsafe living conditions.

State Sen. Phil Boyle (R-Suffolk County), who sponsored the bill, said the number of licensed pet dealers in NY has declined by almost 40% over the past five years while many new not-for-profit shelter and rescue organizations have sprung up offering similar services.

"So this will protect the consumer, this will protect those that want to rescue animals and most importantly this will protect the animals".

Current law authorizes the Department of Agriculture and Markets to oversee and regulate municipal animal shelters and any entity serving in that capacity under contract.
