In addition to the Puppy Mill Pipeline bill, Governor Hochul also signed the Companion Animal Care Standards Act for Shelters and Rescues (S6870-Addabbo/A6246-Paulin) which will raise the standard of care for homeless companion animals across New York, Return to Owner (S8973-Hinchey/A9296-McDonald) which will allow Animal and Dog Control Officers return a dog to its own in the field rather than bringing the dog to the local shelter and a bill banning Homeowners Insurance Discrimination based on the breed of dog one owns (S8315A-Gianaris/A9284A-Glick). This bill closes a loophole that insurance companies thought they found to deny coverage.
