MAMARONECK, N. Y. -- Mamaroneck officials are holding a public hearing Monday night to gather feedback on the proposed regulations on village pet shops that, if approved, could be the first local ordinance banning the use of puppy mills in the state, according to lohud.com.
The proposed law would require pet shops in Mamaroneck to only sell dogs and cats from rescue shelters or rescue groups, rather than commercially bred animals. But since there is some debate on whether this potentially precedent-setting regulation could stand up in court, some officials want to take deliberations slowly,says lohud.com.
The public hearing is scheduled to take place during the 7 p.m. Board of Trustees meeting today at the villagecourtroom, 169 Mount Pleasant Ave. Visit the website for details.
