Senator Grisanti Continues Push for Stronger Animal Cruelty Laws by Urging Governor to Sign Bill Tha

Senator Grisanti Continues Push for Stronger Animal Cruelty Laws by Urging Governor to Sign Bill Tha

Senator Mark Grisanti (R, I – Buffalo) today has renewed his call for a crack down on puppy mills by urging Governor Cuomo to sign into law Bill S.3753, which would allow forward-thinking local governments to regulate commercial pet breeders and pet stores.

The legislation addresses the ineffectiveness of New York’s “Pet Dealer” law, the proliferation of unregulated dog breeders in the state and the pet industry’s complicit support of inherently cruel, out-of-state puppy mills.

“New York State appears to be the only home-rule state in the country that explicitly prohibits its towns and cities from regulating commercial pet breeders and pet stores,” Grisanti said, backed by area leaders in the fight against pet abuse. ”I am calling on the Governor to pass this piece of legislation so that New York can effectively regulate puppy mills, and put an end to abusive breeding techniques.”

Adopt a Pet: Victoria

BUFFALO, N.Y. - This week Suzanne Laba from the Buffalo Animal Shelter and Sarah Watson brought Victoria to the Saturday Daybreak studios. Victoria is a gorgeous long-haired white kitty who sadly is missing one eye.

Victoria came to the shelter with a ruptured cornea that unfortunately was never treated. She went directly to the Buffalo Small Animal Hospital for treatment, and was then brought home by Watson as a foster pet.

Her owner put ointment into Victoria's eye five times a day for two weeks, however it was no use and the eye could not be saved and a decision was made to remove it.

Victoria is a very loving, low key cat. She is easy to handle, is very photogenic, and is a "perpetual purr machine".

If you are interested in adopting Victoria, you can email Sarah Watson here.
