Animal lover Lea Michele teamed up with The Humane Society of the United States to encourage Governor Cuomo to sign a bill designed to help fight puppy mills in New York State.

The “Glee” star wrote in her letter to Cuomo, “As a lifelong New Yorker and a recent dog owner, I couldn’t be more delighted that our great, progressive state has considered large scale commercial puppy mills — breeding factories where female dogs are constantly impregnated and forced to live in cages in their own excrement – an unnecessary cruelty that deserves local oversight. I proudly support your signature on A.740a/S.3753a!”

Brian Shapiro, N.Y. state director for The HSUS, explained, “The bill would grant local governments the ability to regulate puppy mills and declare these conditions illegal. We urge all New Yorkers to call Governor Cuomo and ask him to sign this bill into law to better protect animals living in New York State.”

Thankfully, you don’t have to be a television star to act as a hero to the countless victims of puppy mills. You can also urge Governor Cuomo to sign the bill. As The HSUS notes, “With only weeks left in the legislative session, we urgently need Governor Cuomo to sign a game-changing bill that gives local governments and citizens more ability to regulate puppy mills in their communities.”
