NY Attorney General Eric Schneiderman had launched a new program aimed at protecting animals from fighting rings, puppy mills and being sold by retail operations.  According to the AG’s website, the initiative will work through civil and criminal avenues to target animal cruelty as well as unscrupulous” sales of pets and other animals, striving to bring the perpetrators of these and other animal crimes to justice.” 

Stacy Wolf, vice president and chief counsel of the ASPCA’s Humane Law Enforcement and Legal Advocacy Department, says, We are thankful to Attorney General Schneiderman for his persistent leadership in combating some of the worst forms of animal cruelty.”
