Lagana & Pinkin Introduce Bill to Ban Sale of Puppy Mill Puppies at NJ Pet Shops

Bill was Inspired by Story of Paramus Pet Shop which was Shut Down After Dozens of Puppies were Found in Near- Freezing Van Outside Shop; Similar Conditions Found at East Brunswick Shop

(TRENTON) – Hoping to bring an end to the terrible conditions faced by dogs raised in puppy mills, Assembly Democrats Joe Lagana and Nancy Pinkin have introduced a bill that would prohibit pet shops in New Jersey from selling dogs obtained from puppy mills.

The bill is in response to the controversy surrounding Just Pups, a puppy store in Paramus that was shut down earlier this month after 67 puppies were found unattended in a van behind the shop. The puppies had arrived from the owner’s breeding kennel in Missouri. According to police, it was 38 degrees in the van, and some dogs had no food or water and were covered in feces.
