Romaine to Push for Anti-Puppy Mills Law

Brookhaven Town Supervisor Ed Romaine will speak during a Suffolk County Legislature meeting next week in favor of a new "Anti-Puppy Mills" resolution, a proposed local law that would ban the retail sale of puppies in pet stores unless they are from an animal shelter or a Suffolk County breeder. 

“This legislation has been a long time in coming and I look forward to voicing my strong support in front of the County Legislature," said Romaine, who co-sponsored a similar resolution in 2011 as a then-legislator, but at the time state law blocked local governments from enacting their own pet dealer laws. "Recently, new state legislation sponsored by State Senator Ken LaValle was signed into law that has paved the way for Suffolk County to pass the new law. I encourage anyone who is concerned about puppy mills to attend the meeting and speak in support of this new legislation." 

The meeting will be held on March 4 at 9:30 a.m. in the Maxine Postal Legislative Auditorium in the Evans K. Griffing Building, Riverhead County Center located at 300 Center Drive in Riverhead.

The current proposed law is sponsored by legislators Jay Schneiderman and William Spencer. 

The general requirements of the law state:

  • No animal shall be offered for sale, trade or give-away by a pet dealer or pet store unless the animal is at least 14 weeks old, is in good health and has been weaned from its mother. 
  • Any animal offered for sale, trade or give-away by a pet dealer or pet store shall have daily access to appropriate amounts of clean, fresh water and clean, fresh food. 
  • Any pet dealer or pet store offering animals for sale, trade or give-away shall provide to the consumer a copy of the most recent inspection report conducted by the USDA for the breeder and/or broker from which the subject animal came.

The law also outlines enclosure requirements including that it shall house only one animal at a time, be large enough for animal to lie, stretch, walk and engage in natural movements and contain a resting pad. Each enclosure must also be tagged with detailed information about the enclosed animal. Any pet dealer or pet store which violates any provision of this law shall be assessed a civil fine of $500 per violation.

Romaine urged anyone who is interested in a new dog or cat to visit the Brookhaven Animal Shelter and Adoption Center. There are many adoptable pets and all adoption, spay and neuter fees have been waived until June 30. The shelter is located at 300 Horseblock Road in Brookhaven. 

It is open Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday from 9:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. (closed Wednesdays), Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. For more information, please call the Animal Shelter at 631-286-4940 or visit www.brookhaven.org/animalshelter.

This would be a non-issue and the Brookhaven Animal shelter wouldn't have an adoption problem if: 1. The island were not crippled by pockets of ghetto dweller type trash (of all races) who indiscriminately allow their pit-bulls to mate and 2. The "canned" photo for this article was indicative of the type of pet you can get at the brookhaven shelter. The current available for adopt at brookhaven is 108 and it's page after page of pit type dogs. It is not my job - for my family - to save dogs bred by these fools, it's my job to get the best possible dog from the best possible breeder in my desired category for my home and family. The reality is Brookhaven Animal shelter IS A "PUPPY MILL" and its "suppliers" - the bulk of them, are ill prepared, uneducated low-life's breeding "pit bulls". Laws are never going to stop this. Only education and understanding will stop this, and unfortunately a lot of folks are unable to comprehend. Any yahoo applauding this attempted action by "Caribbean Ed" - as brookhavenconfucius tags him - is in denial and or unable to see the bigger picture. What is really happening here is an attempt at steering prospective dog owners to the town shelter and that is the economic force driving behind this. We all see how effective laws are at stopping illegal drugs. The other driving force is called grand standing by Romaine, and his next election. He is not a dimwit, he is a savvy politician. This is great press for Romaine, and the likes of April Campbell Quiggle, Marlene Sabba and Rollo Tomasi are all ready to get a hook deep in their mouths and will remember this action. And even if it doesn't pass, Romaine gets a star next to his name. "Oh Eddie is so sweet" "Remember when he tried to stop those evil puppy mills?" "what ever happen with that?" "I don't know." "But, lets vote for him again!" "So Sweet..."

The Town Animal Shelter is a union-dominated, domicile for every Town LOUT, and HANGER ON, that's the mercy of Bill Walsh's CSEA THUGS, and IF, CARIBBEAN EDDY, REALLY, wanted reform, he would hitch his pants up, and CLEAN HOUSE but that will NEVER happen !

Frank, don't forget this OLDIE BUT GOODIE... The Brookhaven Animal shelter is looking for its second director in eight months. Maureen Schneider, hired as director at $75,000 a year in December, did not have her employment extended by town public safety commissioner Peter O'Leary. O'Leary offered no explanation when asked at Tuesday's town council meeting why she was not retained, other than that her six-month probation period recently ended. Yvonne Haynes, an animal control officer at the shelter, was named acting director until a replacement is hired. Interviews for the position will be conducted June 11, town officials said. Former director Dori Scofield stepped down from her $90,000 position in October after two years, saying "budget constraints" had hindered her ability to do her job. "If I had more staff, I could continue to save more lives," Scofield said when she departed. The shelter housed 180 dogs and 67 cats as of last week, Brookhaven officials said. http://www.newsday.com/long-island/towns/brookhaven-animal-shelter-to-search-for-new-leader-1.5417722

What about all the rescue organizations that "rescue" dogs from other states or countries? They ship them north and then put them up for "adoption" for exorbitant "donations"? As a dog trainer I've worked with numerous dogs from Florida, Georgia and Mexico. Most are hound mixes or small/medium mixed breeds that are easy to ship in small crates. Some of these rescue groups have turned rescue into big business and the living conditions for the dogs are often as bad as the puppy mills... but they get away with it because they're "rescuing" the dogs.
Raissa February 26, 2014 at 08:37 AM
Yes, D, specifically North Shore. This bill is long overdue.
brookhavenconfucius February 26, 2014 at 09:02 AM
So you want those proven CROOKS, from the Town to go into business ? They can, barely, run the Town, and stay out of jail.
Marlene R February 26, 2014 at 10:58 AM
To FRANK ESPOSITO: You are so eloquently correct! I did fail to see the bigger picture - and I have been educated! Correctly stated, the shelters do not have a dog that I would want integrated into my family. I have seen the poor dogs who are there. Romaine should have better things to take care of - such as the dilapidated homes still housing too many men - here illegally - within our nice neighborhoods. Thank you for the eye-opener!
Frank Esposito February 26, 2014 at 01:32 PM
Raissa, North Shore (if you mean North Shore Animal shelter) will not be touched by this proposed action they are not under Brookhaven jurisdiction . And furthermore will never be touched because they have friends and misguided supporters in high places. After Karina hit down south and NS started realizing big bucks from the hubs down there it was no stopping them. They built a whole new wing just to accept and house "southern" dogs before moving them into general population for adoption about 5 years or so ago. As for you Marlene Sabba, my hat is off to you for grabbing the bigger picture so quickly and being eloquent and true to yourself in admittance of such. A lot of people can't do that because they "always need to be right". On the face of this push by Romaine it seems like "the right thing to do" but if you look at the deeper mechanisms behind it - it stinks to high hell and the intended result is not going to be the outcome the hook line and sinker suckers falling inline behind "romaine" will expect. This "law" is completely driven by political / town tax economics. Follow the tax money, political ambitions and Cronyism of those running brookhaven and you will have your real reason behind this proposed law.
Joan Fuoco February 26, 2014 at 01:53 PM
Other states have passed laws to this effect....the mistreatment of animals has gone on too long. Too many sick dogs have been sold under the guise of "pet shops".
Raissa February 26, 2014 at 02:38 PM
I gave North Shore as an example, to illustrate your point, Frank. I am not concerned with the impure motives of politicians. If it helps prevent even a small amount of animal cruelty, I will support it. Confucius: About the "Low-lifes" causing the problem: The Hamptons have a huge problem with dogs that are adopted for the summer by wealthy families for the children to play with and then abandoned when they return to the city at the end of the season. These animals are victims of people who are cruel, ignorant, or both. I know: I took in a pure breed thrown out after the blizzard last year -- found frozen into the snow. We have to do what we can for as many as possible. That's why I volunteer at a shelter. I wish there were state laws. Would love to see Sportsman's shut down, for example.
Archie Bunker February 26, 2014 at 03:00 PM
I think some people need to do a little research on how inhumane puppy mills are before they play monday morning political quarterback here. The intentions of this law are meant to be good.
Marlene R February 26, 2014 at 03:57 PM
I agree with the abolishment of puppy mills 100%. They are inhumane and their owners deserve huge fines. So if you don't want a shelter dog due to it's breed where do you go?
Frank Esposito February 26, 2014 at 04:00 PM
Raissa, you are confusing "low-lifes" with with an economic level. Rich or poor the term low-life can run the whole course of that scale. Look at that NFL player Micheal Vic for example and his actions. Also, would any letter of this proposed law have prevented the example you gave of wealthy families dumping dogs after the summer is over in the hamptons issue? The answer is NO absolutely NOT. Raissa, your up front biggest problem is twofold.... 1. not caring about the "whys" and the real reasons behind political actions and 2. thinking too emotionally. Ironically your behavior will not lead to a greater calming of the problem. Please understand I don't mean any of that in a mean way. I would love to see someone with your desire to help and motivation get involved with the real key problems behind issues such as this. Either way I wish you success in your life.
Dog daze... February 26, 2014 at 04:31 PM
Marlene, look for a breeder who is breeding for the good of the breed, not because they can make money selling puppies. Look for someone who is involved in the breed club for their chosen breed, who shows, trains or competes with their dogs, who has a well thought out breeding plan, who knows the genetics behind their dog's lines, who does health testing and only breeds dogs that have passed their health clearances. Here are a few good links. http://www.humanesociety.org/issues/puppy_mills/tips/finding_responsible_dog_breeder.html http://www.humanesociety.org/assets/pdfs/pets/puppy_mills/find_responsible_dog_breeder.pdf
brookhavenconfucius February 26, 2014 at 04:31 PM
NOTHING GOOD has come from ANYONE, in Brookhaven Govt., excepting at a $$$$$ to Tax Payers, or something for the advantage of Town Govt. Stooges ! They don't do ANYTHING for Free !
Frank Esposito February 26, 2014 at 05:11 PM
Marlene pay attention to what Dog Daze just told you. It is very good advice.
Frank Esposito February 26, 2014 at 05:34 PM
Archie Bunker and Marlene R., please tell me what you believe a "puppy mill" is - please define the term in your words - and why they are "so bad" (not that I'm defending them) and then give me the location on long island or elsewhere of these "evil" puppy mills. See, what I'm getting at is this whole puppy mill thing is more about feelings than a real problem and is a an emotional news driven item. There are already laws against animal abuse and cruelty that are enforced against these types of things. You see, people see 3 puppies in a window or crate and start applying all these things that they have no idea or proof of. The real problem is not the "puppy mills" who place profit over dog living conditions. You need look no further than where a place like the Brookhaven Animal shelter gets the bulk of its "unwanted" dogs and cats from. It is private people and family's that buy / get these pets and misuse, abuse and discard them after they can't handle, afford or want the problems they created anymore. What I'm getting at is, the only way out of this is education and enlightenment of owners and prospective owners of pets. They are the real problem and/or cure behind all of this. You can't make laws against private people and their "stupidity" when it comes to owning animals. BUT! I would be 100% behind Brookhaven spending some money on education of the residents. Get on the news and tell them about a website created or do mailings that highlights the unwanted animal problem in brookhaven, and how to be a responsible dog owner etc. Now that will not stop every single knucklehead out there like the Mike Vic's of the world, but it will go a long way to enlightening people and having them "fix the problem" at ground zero. See this gets back the the problem of a women and a mindset like Raissa's. Pay close attention here. Educating the public would cost a bit of money, but writing a law... well that give the town a possible revenue source and creates jobs for "inspectors" and the like. The later only really benefits the town and its coffers and its cronies who suck off the tax dollars. If there was real "caring" on the towns part the best money is on education of the public. But hey, why spend money on education when I can just hit you over the head with a law and take your money and spend it on what I want. If you win the hearts and minds of people through understanding, you need little to no laws governing their actions. As a matter of fact when a "master" leads like that, the people fully believe they are the ones who have accomplished the task and indeed they are. But you see bad "masters" want you to believe they are running the show and you need them in the drivers seat because they need you to keep them vaulted in there higher places. Do you get it now Raissa?
Archie Bunker February 26, 2014 at 06:14 PM
You are sounding like an idiot frank. A puppy mill - commercial dog breeding operation - dog spends their entire life locked in a cage, continually impregnated every 6 mos, sole purpose in existence to to breed breed and breed. No quality of life whatsoever. Inbreeding, no vet care, Lock your wife in a room, and impregnate here every 9 months, never let her out, never let her do anything but wield children and when she can no longer do so, put her down. What a jackass. Oh and this isn't about a puppy mill on LI, its about selling dogs from puppy mills located anywhere on LI
Frank Esposito February 26, 2014 at 06:28 PM
Lets talk about laws a little bit more while we are at it here.... Doesn't anyone here believe most people don't do illegal things / illegal drugs / murder people etc. because there are laws against such things? If so, you deserve to be oppressed by a heavy handed government that sucks the life blood of your labor from you and gives it to someone else or keeps it to enrich themselves and their cronies. You have completely lost your way and your understanding about what is innate in humans. Yep, there are twisted sick people, power hungry people out there it's in our DNA still... for now, and often some people can't suppress it and they rise to disproportionate control, but always, always, the human race on whole rights itself again and gets around to putting us back on track to the greater good. We are headed for such a magical world in the future, but in the meantime we have wars to fight and genocides to commit, brother against brother, sister against sister and people who control weapons and just can't wait to use them . I wish our sick leaders (not all are sick BTW) wouldn't drive us there, but in time this will all wain. Someday way out of our time our people will grow enough to touch the face of that that created us and I'm not necessarily talking about a "God" here so you "god-haters" don't need to get your panties in a knot. Look back over our history here on this planet... yes the same motif plays out between the players over the century's but we continue to improve the greater lot time and time again. We need some really good people to standup and not tune out. Rule of law does not create the mind... mind creates the rule of law among men. Our minds are good and good will be done in the end after all the suffering along the way. But in our lifetime it is possible we may see a new enlightenment and it will be no less as great as our rise from the Dark Ages. Before you cut me off as a fool talking crap I ask you sit back a think about what I've written here. Don't judge what you have read upon first reading.

Kristie M February 27, 2014 at 11:24 PM
Maureen, a real breeder will have the puppies' parents in the home for you to meet. They will visit your home and insist on meeting your family and do reference checks. A loser selling puppies, online or over the Web, is NOT a breeder. Can you imagine shipping a helpless 8-week-old puppy to a store where it can be purchased by anyone with cash or credit? They only sleep at night because they do not care about the dogs, they care about the money.
Frank Esposito February 28, 2014 at 05:28 PM
Hey Archie, if it's not about puppy mills on long island (and really it's not) why are we creating laws concerning "puppy mills" locally? Who in Suffolk / brookhaven will deem the out of county breeders an "unfit" puppy mill? Will Brookhaven send inspectors out of county to inspect, or will they willy nilly just say no, no outside dogs? It appears they are going for the later right?. There is nothing inherently wrong with breeding a dog for sale and selling it elsewhere as long as dog is treated "humanely". Please disagree with me, and strongly - all of you - if you like, but don't lower yourself to name calling. Really what's the point of that? Bottom line is this "law" is about steering customers to local breeders and shelters. Money driven, bottom line and governmental issues and cronyism at Brookhaven shelter (a la Romaine one of the driving forces to the bill). Go ahead step up and help... go bring a pitbull mix home to your family compliments of Brookhaven animal shelter, hey try 2 of them what the heck. I'm sure brookhaven took them in from top notch breeders locally from places like Brentwood, Gordon Heights, and other such areas. I believe they are still charging no "adoption fees" until june 30, but of cause the "bond money" of $40 and $35 is still required (and perhaps a few other hidden fees). And don't skip out on that. It seems to me this law is not going to help the intended focus and mostly result in loss of consumer choice to buy local. Are you people not reading the law as it states? It would ban the retail sale of puppies in pet stores unless they are from an animal shelter or a Suffolk County breeder. And further more is that shelter given an out of county exemption, or will only shelters in suffolk too? And further more what is to stop someone from leaving county for a specific dog or breed - nothing.. so what are we doing here?. Will this stop the flood of unwanted dogs - mostly ill breed pits - from flooding the brookhaven shelter causing financial strain? Hey head on over to http://www.longisland.com/dog-breeders.html that bucket full of puppies looks abusive to me, or maybe not, maybe they like that. But someone should tell that website that picture is clearly in violation of the coming law and they better pull it down. LOL
Frank Esposito February 28, 2014 at 06:06 PM
For those who don't like to read long pieces or for those who hate me so much they can't read too much without puking.... Under this law the county shelters and "local only" breeders will be selling dogs. Do you think the shelters are or will be getting their dogs from educated county inspected breeders - responsible breeders who treated their dogs well? ;-) ;-) Head on over to Brookhaven Shelter and pick up a pitbull mix from Jose from Brentwood and his babies mother.... who had 2 pitbulls... a brother and sister pitbull mix by the way, who just had a litter of 6 because they were too ignorant to spay and neuter. See how that works out for you. Or Bob, from Miller Place who has a pitbull mix - one of Bob's sparring dogs for his 4 other pits over at Jose's basement, that oh, by the way that pit just had a few litters too. See my fellow readers, that is the biggest problem on long island; not some breeder milling and shipping in designer pups from Lancaster PA. The later can be stop by educating the consumer and not new laws. Jose, Bob and Jose's babies mother... well... no law is going to stop their unfortunate ignorance and lack of circumspection. I can't wait for this new law. It is really going to change everything for the better. But if not as usual we can just make another law or add more BS to this one. POWER TO THE PUPPIES! WE ARE COMING TO SAVE YOU! OUCH SORRY ABOUT THAT! We didn't expect that outcome... We had are heart in the right place... We really did.
Kristie M February 28, 2014 at 06:07 PM
Frank, to address a few of your issues, hopefully in a rational manner...first, as Archie said there are not a lot of puppy mills on LI, but every single pet store on LI (and the state) buys from puppy mills, often with multiple USDA violations. Your comparisons to loss of consumer choice has no merit here because of the abuse and neglect at puppy mills. We want small, hobby breeders to do well. These are the good people who care about their dogs, how they are treated and what home they go to. I have two shelter dogs, my cousin drove to CT to pick up a puppy from a home-based breeder there. It was a good breeder -- she did reference and vet checks and insisted on the entire family making two trips to CT to see the puppies. People also come from other places to buys dogs from our local breeders. This will never be criminalized. It is all about the treatment of the animals. High-volume breeders where one couple on farm have 100 breeding dogs and 72 puppies are not in it for the welfare of the animals or the joy of a puppy for a buyer. They move puppies like video games and damage out the bad ones in the exact same manner as inanimate products. The only reason shelters were brought up is because the first Christmas puppy winds up there before New Year's Eve. They are dumped at town and non-profit shelters. They are ignored at home, left in crates all day, offed to friends or relatives once the first pair of shoes is chewed up or people realize you have to train a puppy. There are unethical shelters. They will be addressed, too. Don't think anyone who harms animals for money is getting a pass just because of the label. Pet stores have even started their own fake rescues, which is merely discounted, unsold puppies. It is all shameful behavior and on the radar. Will this stop the flood of unwanted dogs? It will stem the tide. Pet store purchases are often impulsive and as I noted above, the dogs are dumped. Also, while all good shelters spay/neuter, pets store puppies are intact. This leads people to "try their hand at breeding." They wind up with unsold puppies that then go to rescues. Some dogs just get loose or are left to roam and wind up with unwanted litters. Online sales of puppies are also a problem and that is currently being addressed by the USDA. It's a start. The SDA does a terrible job of inspecting commercial breeders and it's 1966 livestock regulations allow for a lot of horror. That said, everything is in steps. At least there is finally some oversight. Again, it all goes back to animal welfare. There are plenty of real breeders, not just puppy factories. They will succeed financially and with the best chance of healthy puppies. There are too many unlicensed breeders who are afraid any regulations will sweep them up. This is not the case. The only breeding anyone would like to see stopped are pit bulls and chihauhas and that is only because we are killing them in droves in our shelters. That is just irresponsible breeding. There are plenty of other breeds to work with. I wrote a blog series on puppy mills for Huntington Patch in 2012. I rge anyone with questions about mills and the pet store puppy mill connection to read them. They are very well researched and I cited all my sources.
Frank Esposito February 28, 2014 at 07:43 PM
Here is an example of the type (not indicative of all, but) one of the many local county "breeders" you will be getting your Brookhaven shelter dog from. True story here... While walking down the street one day, we happen upon a beautiful brindle coat pit-bull mix. My friend and I are approached by dog (we are both very much dog lovers and are more than happy to accept its greeting) and it appears friendly and indeed it was. What does the owner do? He yanks it back by the lead and strikes it with back of lead. We give the owner a "u f'ing jerk look" and continue our walk. Let be honest here, if we called that in it would go nowhere and if we stuck around we would have either gotten into a "fight" with this guy and been arrested ourselves, or he would have left the scene. Either way something non-advantageous and non-productive for us was going to go down. These are the people who are currently and still will be raising the dogs and breeding their pups available at Brookhaven Animal Shelter. These are the fools that will not be effected by this wonderful new law being proposed. These fools and the people who buy dogs and suddenly realize they can't handle the responsibility of owning a pet and turn it into a shelter for a nice traumatic lifestyle change. Those groups are your top breeders for shelters. Now even Archie (commenter here at the Patch) himself, who is very up on all things "puppy mill" can't even locate one "puppy mill" on long island for us. I bet Archie can't even identify a "puppy mill" (you know the bad ones) outside of Suffolk county either ( huh oh no, he is going to call me a bad name again - I just know it, or maybe this time he will find some grammatical error and make fun of that next time because I know for sure his type nearly never reply with something grown from any eruditional sensibilities) . So again, is this law about preventing puppy mills or steering Suffolk dwellers into a narrower band of where you can buy your pets from to the advantage of some other groups. Notice Ed Romaine in this article "urged" (only urged) anyone who is interested in a new dog or cat to visit the Brookhaven Animal Shelter and Adoption Center. Of cause the finial choice is yours and buyer beware right? I wonder how the town indemnifies itself from some of these ill breed dogs and possible law suit? Maybe they only adopt out "adoptable" pets? When you sign after coughing up the adoption "fee" do they have some convenient language in it that covers their butt? This useless - but passable because it tugs on the heart strings of the uneducated and misguided - law will pass and nothing will improve. Also get ready to cough up bigger money for local breeders as they know, unless you are willing to travel / deal with an out of county breeder they got you over a bit of a barrel. "Hey you can buy a slightly over priced mini-pincher form me or go and spend more in travel / transport, etc." "It's up to you dear prospective customer" ;-) The big pushers of this law are guys like Romaine and their troubled county shelters (because of troubled people living in Brookhaven putting great strain on town resources) and I bet you the Long Island breeders association and /or some grouping of fellowship minded folks. And remember by their very function, there is no place less in control of their "breeding" than a county shelter. But of cause this law will go a long way to stopping bad breeders rights? And be sure to head on down to the Brookhaven shelter at Eddie's "urging", as they only select from the best breeders of the bunch and will continue to do so after this law. My God, you people not seeing through the emotional BS fog selling this law to the public are really getting duped. And then to attack me as a "douche bag" and "idiot"? What?! Holy cow, some of you people are really dysfunctional! No offense to cow breeders... sorry there guys.
Frank Esposito February 28, 2014 at 08:02 PM
Archie, I just re-read my last 3 postings... have at it brother.... there are many grammatical errors. So now you can call me a douche bag and an idiot and also make fun of my writing. Oh, I almost forgot.... I also walk with a gimp and have one ear lobe noticeably bent and bigger than the other... just to let you know, in case you want to make fun of that too. Enjoy yourself at my expense brother. I'm more than happy to help you out there. Hopefully that will give you the makings for a great weekend ahead. Happy to help ya out!
Patchogue Snoop March 09, 2014 at 10:00 AM
WOW! As the highway department sinks in a cesspool of drug dealing, corruption, endless OT, no show jobs, collapsing buildings Big Ed the HACK sets his priorities......dogs first...taxpayer a distant second. This hack is just an example of what earned us the name "CROOKHAVEN" he is in it up to his eyeballs!!
