Westchester Puppies & Kittens Claimed That Animals For Sale Were “Home-Raised” And From “Certified Breeders,” Rather Than Large-Scale Commercial “Mills” 

WESTCHESTER – Attorney General Letitia James today announced a settlement with the owner of a Westchester pet store that was falsely advertising and claiming that it specialized in the sale of high quality, responsibly-bred animals. In reality, the store sold animals that were bred at large-scale commercial “mills.” Pursuant to the settlement, Deborah Koehler, owner of Westchester Puppies & Kittens in Hartsdale, New York, is prohibited from making false representations about the quality of the breeders and kennels from which she obtains animals for sale. She will also pay a civil penalty of $7,500.
