NYC Law that can protect pet owners who had their pets for three months when your landlord tells you pet has to go or else!
NYC Keep your pets with you in a loving humane environment legally even when your landlord says no!
It seems that there has been an increase in pets released to New York Animal Care Centers because their landlord won't allow the pet to remain on the premises. As a result, many pet owners broken-heartedly feeling they have no other recourse have taken their furry family member to the local Animal Care Center because they have an open door policy and many no-kill shelters are full!
What's tragic here is the shelter they release them to are kill shelters and what's even more tragic is there's a law to stop this from happening. I have seen many owners released pets with landlord issues wind up on the at-risk list to be killed and many are in fact killed. I'm sure this is not what owners in these circumstances expected to happen to their beloved animals. (This law is also referred to as Grandfathered in.)
Sadly at this time,
I am here to inform you that you may have a legal way to keep your pets and not be evicted if you do.
