The bill, penned by Assembly member Linda B. Rosenthal, will strengthen the oversight of pet dealers across the state and ensure that their animals are being kept in healthy and safe conditions. The new law will allow local governments to require that the animals sold in pet shops be healthy, spayed or neutered, and do not come from puppy mills.
