Gusciora Bill to Strengthen Penalties for Pet Shops, Revise Animal Cruelty Law in New Jersey Clears Assembly Panel(TRENTON) - Legislation sponsored by Assembly Democrat Reed Gusciora and Raj Mukherji to increase fines for pet shop violations and revise current law concerning animal cruelty was recently approved by an Assembly panel.
"Animals should be treated humanely while in the care of pet shop owners and waiting for adoption," said Gusciora (D-Mercer, Hunterdon). "Unfortunately, some pet shop owners do not abide by the law. Stronger penalties will send a message to pet shops that violate the animal cruelty laws will no longer receive a slap on the wrist."
