This bill prohibits any person from selling, offering for sale, transferring, exchanging, or bartering a cat or dog, or otherwise engaging in a transaction concerning a cat or dog, unless the transaction is a face-to-face transaction. This prohibition would apply to transactions between a breeder or other seller and a consumer who are both in the State, a breeder or other seller in the State and a consumer in another state, and a breeder or other seller in another state and a consumer in the State. The bill also prohibits a pet shop from offering a cat or dog for sale, or obtaining a cat or dog for that purpose, unless the cat or dog comes from with or without payment or compensation of any kind, from a shelter, pound, kennel operating as a shelter or pound, or an animal rescue organization. The bill establishes a penalty of $500 for each violation, in addition to other penalties that may be imposed pursuant to the State consumer fraud law (P.L.1960, c.39 (C.56:8-1 et seq.)), State animal control, dog licensing, and kennel, pet shop, shelter, and pound laws (P.L.1941, c.151 (C.4:19-15.1 et seq.)), or the State criminal code (Title 2C of the New Jersey Statutes).
