The Township Council was expected to pass a resolution supporting banning the sale of dogs and cats From “Puppy Mills” and “Kitten Mills.”

The council’s action stems from a six-count complaint filed in July in Superior Court in Bergen County against the owner of Just Pups pet store on Route 10 alleging that he misled customers about the health of puppies sold from his stores in East Hanover, East Brunswick, Emerson and Paramus; refused to reimburse customers for puppies that died or required veterinary care and committed dozens of other consumer protection violations.
