New Pet Protection Laws Signed In Dutchess County


(Hyde Park, NY) -- Two new pieces of legislation to prevent animal cruelty are signed into law in Dutchess County.

County Executive Marc Molinaro and County Legislature Chairman Gregg Pulver signed the two laws Tuesday at the Dutchess County Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals in Hyde Park. The two resolutions were unanimously approved in a bi-partisan vote of the Dutchess County Legislature at its August board meeting. One resolution establishes an animal abuse registry, and the second establishes canine tethering regulations relating to shelter and weather conditions.
