A bill is advancing in the New York Assembly that would require all USDA Class A dealers to purchase municipal dog licenses, among other requirements.

Current law requires that dog owners in cities with populations over 2 million must obtain dog licenses and have their dogs vaccinated against rabies if the dog is over 4 months of age. If ownership changes, then the municipality must be notified within 10 days.  Assembly Bill 720 clarifies that these laws, along with the state’s dangerous dog laws, also apply to USDA Class A dealers. 

Assembly Bill 720 has passed the Assembly Agriculture Committee and is pending in the Rules Committee.  In 2015, the bill passed both of these committees and was ultimately held in the Assembly Ways and Means Committee.

If you wish to comment on this legislation, you may contact the Assembly Rules Committee.  A complete roster may be found here.
