New Jersey Ban on Sale of Dogs, Cats and Rabbits in Pet Stores!


A bill introduced in New Jersey late last month has sparked a debate over the sale of dogs, cats, and rabbits in pet stores. The proposed legislation would ban such sales, with supporters arguing that there are already plenty of animals in shelters and private breeders in the state.

They say that a ban would put a stop to commercial puppy mill breeders sending dogs to these stores from out of state. However, store owners say they’ll be forced to close, and people looking for a pet in New Jersey deserve a choice.

Tom Gallo, owner of Pet Center in Old Bridge, said, “It’s required in New Jersey if you purchase a puppy from a pet store, you get a two-week viral warranty and a six-month hereditary warranty. Here at Pet Center, we extend that to three years. What this bill does is repeal those protections for consumers.”

Monmouth County SPCA Executive Director Ross Licitra said, “I support those checks and balances that come in, and I do feel for these people who have the pet stores and pet shops who want to do this – unfortunately, at the end of the day, it is easy enough to get around, and animals do suffer.”

New York will become the seventh state to ban the sale of dogs and cats at pet stores on Jan. 1, 2024. However, there is no word on when this bill, sponsored by New Jersey state Sen. Brian Stack, may come up for a vote.
