(WBNG) — On Tuesday at 7 p.m., the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) will join the Humane Society of the United States, the New York State Animal Protection Federation, Voters for Animal Rights, Companion Animal Protection Society and the Animal Legal Defense Fund for a webinar on the NY Puppy Mill Pipeline Bill.
Everyone is invited to join in to find out how you can help pass legislation to shut down the puppy mill pipeline in New York State in 2022.
According to the ASPCA, out-of-state puppy mills ship their puppies to New York pet stores, where they are marketed as healthy puppies by responsible breeders.
Puppy mills make money by breeding dogs over and over again in cruel conditions, selling large numbers of puppies to pet stores.
This system is possible because in New York State it is still legal to sell humanely raised dogs and cats in pet stores.
The Puppy Mill Pipeline Bill will end the sale of dogs, cats and rabbits to pet stores, making it harder for puppy mills to profit from New York.
The ASPCA suggests signing and submitting a form to send to your state legislators or members of assembly to politely ask for their support.
