New York State has won its battle against an East End pet shelter. Attorney General Eric Schneiderman says his office won a temporary restraining order against Precious Pups in Calverton, closing it down.
He says it bans the not-for-profit pet shelter from offering any dogs for sale or adoption.
Schneiderman says his office received numerous complaints from people who got dogs from the shelter and say the animals were given a clean bill of health by the facility, but were actually sick. The facility’s owner denies the allegations and claims the dogs were healthy and had been checked by a vet.
