New Jersey legislation sponsored by Senator Jim Holzapfel and Assemblymen Dave Wolfe and Greg McGuckin that would require pet stores to display additional information about each dog and cat for sale, including the name and address of the breeder was signed into law yesterday by Governor Chris Christie.

"After years of dedication to this legislation, we are pleased this measure to protect the purchaser from buying sick pets for their families is now law," said Holzapfel. "By requiring a pet store to disclose the history at the point of sale, we can give consumers the opportunity to research the breeder and make an informed decision on where to make their purchase.”

The measure requires pet stores to disclose the origins of the dogs they sell and prohibit them from sourcing animals from breeders who fail to meet even the most basic care standards prescribed by federal and state law.
