In Baldwin, Long Island, staff members with the Nassau SPCA seized 11 puppies on Monday from a locked and unattended pet store. As of Monday afternoon, officials were unable to make contact with the store owner, and it appeared as if the puppies had been left inside alone for an unknown period of time.
The sign for the pet store had recently been removed and paper covered the windows where puppies in their cages previously could be seen from the sidewalk.
According to Abc7NYNews, three customers who had recently purchased puppies from the store ‘Puppy 4You,’ had their puppies die a few weeks later. One woman purchased a Maltipoo for $1,500; that same afternoon the puppy had been coughing. The woman took the puppy to their veterinarian where he was diagnosed with pneumonia and deemed “unfit for sale.” Sadly, after more than $4,000 in veterinary bills and a broken-hearted child, the puppy died.
Another person purchased a Golden Doodle puppy for $2,000 whose multiple health issues discovered shortly after the purchase also died. Report after report alleges thousands of dollars spent at veterinarians to try and save the sick puppies.
The people who purchased the puppies were not given refunds. The store is not licensed in Nassau County or with New York State.
According to the Nassau County SPCA, the seized puppies were rushed to the organization’s veterinarian hospital partner.
