Attorney General Cuomo Obtains Restitution For Pet Owners Tricked Into Paying Thousands Of Dollars For Sick Puppies By Long Island Pet Store
MINEOLA, N.Y. – Attorney General Andrew M. Cuomo today announced that his office has obtained at least $35,000 in restitution for consumers who were deceived by a Bellmore-based pet store into purchasing sick animals.
Worldwide Puppies touted itself as specializing in selling, in addition to larger puppies, high quality teacup and toy size puppies, such as Yorkshire Terriers, Chihuahuas and Shih-Tzus. The average prices of the animals range between $1,500 and $2,500 each. After receiving multiple complaints, the Attorney Generals Office conducted an investigation into the pet store, located on Sunrise Highway in Bellmore and found it violated the states Pet Lemon Law, by selling pets that suffered from serious illnesses despite the companys guarantee that the animals were in good health.
In a series of outrageous and cruel deceptions, this company lied to customers who thought they were buying healthy pets to bring into their families homes and lives, said Attorney General Cuomo. Instead, those customers suffered not only the heartbreak of watching an animal suffer, but also thousands of dollars in veterinary bills to bring their pets back to good health. The actions of Worldwide Puppies have caused numerous New York families to endure both significant emotional and monetary distress, and I am proud to say that my office has put a stop to their despicable practice of selling sick pets to unsuspecting new owners.
