Local Law #7 of 2016
(Passed at December 6, 2016 Full Meeting)
A LOCAL LAW AMENDING THE PUTNAM COUNTY CODE BY ADDING A NEW CHAPTER
115 ENTITLED “ANIMAL PROTECTION”
Be it enacted by the Legislature of the County of Putnam as follows:
Section 1.
A New Chapter 115 of the Putnam County Code entitled “Animal Protection” is
hereby added to read as follows:
ARTICLE I
Animal Cruelty Registry Law
§115-1. Legislative Intent
Animal cruelty is a serious problem, resulting in the abuse of thousands of animals each
year in the United States. While New York State has criminalized the cruel treatment of
animals, animal abuse continues to occur in Putnam County and throughout New York
State. Studies show that people who have abused animals in the past are likely to do so
in the future and that there is a near 100% recidivism rate for certain types of abuse such
as animal hoarding. Furthermore, individuals who abuse animals are statistically more
likely to commit violent acts against humans and a strong correlation has been
established linking individuals who abuse animals with incidents of domestic violence.
The Putnam County Legislature finds that it is in the best interest of Putnam County
residents to establish an online registry identifying individuals residing in Putnam
County that have been convicted of an animal abuse crime and prevent these individuals
convicted of animal cruelty from adopting, purchasing, or otherwise obtaining animals
from any animal shelter, pet seller, or other person or entity involved in the exchange of
animals by adoption, sale, or other means. Therefore, the purpose of this law is to
establish an online registry of individuals residing in Putnam County who are convicted
of animal abuse crimes.
§115-2. Definitions
A. “Animal Abuse Crime” shall mean the commission of the following
enumerated crimes against an animal:
(1) Animal Fighting, as defined in the New York State Agriculture and

Proper Sustenance, as defined in A.M.L. §353;
(3) Aggravated Cruelty to Animals, as defined in A.M.L. §353-a;
(4) Abandonment of Animals, as defined in A.M.L. § 355;
(5) Failure to provide proper food and drink to Impounded Animals, as

§360;
(8) Interference with or Injury to certain Domestic Animals, as defined in

York State Penal Code §242.10;

directly to the consumer animals born and raised on the breeder’s
residential premises.
G. “Animal Shelter” shall mean any public, privately owned, or not for profit
organization including, but not limited to, any duly incorporated humane
society, pound, animal protective association or animal rescue group
which maintains buildings, structures, or other property for the purpose of

§115-3. Creation of Animal Cruelty Registry
An online registry shall be established containing the name, residence information, and a

been convicted of any animal abuse crime, as defined in this Article. The Putnam County
Sheriff is hereby authorized, empowered and directed to collaborate with the Putnam
County Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, Inc. (PCSPCA) to establish and
maintain an Animal Cruelty Registry (the “Registry) for such individuals in Putnam
County. The Registry shall also contain links to other county Animal Abuse Registries
that are available, or as they become available in the future, in the State of New York,
with such other county registries to be used as informational resources by Animal
Shelters, Pet Sellers, Pet Dealers, or other persons or entities located in Putnam County
when they shall sell, exchange or otherwise transfer the ownership of any animal. The
PCSPCA shall receive all fees associated with the registration as the cost of maintenance
and administration of the Registry. The Registry shall be publicly available on the
PCSPCA website.
The Registry shall contain the required information about each Animal Abuse Offender
for a period of ten (10) years following his or her release from incarceration; or if not
incarcerated, from the date of entry judgment. Persons who are convicted of subsequent
animal abuse crimes shall remain on the Registry for ten (10) years following their most
recent conviction. Upon notification to the Putnam County Sheriff’s Office of a
successful appeal of a conviction of an animal abuse crime by any individual who had
been required to register pursuant to this local law, the information for that individual
shall be removed from the Registry within five (5) days following said notification.
§115-4. Registry Requirements
A. All Animal Abuse Offenders who reside in Putnam County and who are

E. Every person required to enroll in the Registry must pay a fee of fifty ($50)
dollars to the PCSPCA upon initial registration and every January
thereafter at the time of their registration update. These funds will be used
to pay the administrative and maintenance costs of maintaining the
Registry. The PCSPCA may waive part or the entire registration fee where,
because of the indigence of the person, the payment of such fee would
work an unreasonable hardship on such offender, his or her immediate
family, or any other person who is dependent on such person for financial
support.

County who moves into Putnam County must enroll in the Registry within
