Romulus commended for puppy mill ruling


The town of Romulus, New York, has been lauded for issuing a moratorium on dog breeding facilities within its jurisdiction.

The New York State Humane Association and the group Animal Rights Mobilization commended Town Supervisor David Kaiser for pursuing a moratorium on commercial breeding kennels.

“Non-human animals, like human animals, have certain basic interests and, if we consider ourselves humane, civilized individuals, we must — in fairness — respect those interests.”

The town’s Dog Regulation Subcommittee met Nov. 17 and discussed how breeders might be examined by an inspector for dog health. The committee will explore the efficacy of permits and zoning to control and, possibly, eliminate commercial breeding operations. Also of concern are “backyard breeders” and ways to monitor those.

Dog Control Officer Aaron Covert, Seneca County Planner Harriet Haynes and Town Attorney Steven Getman are assisting in the project.
