Animal Abuser Registries in New York StateNew York counties are beginning to create and post online animal abuser registries. NYSHA is providing links to those counties that currently maintain an online registry of persons convicted of animal abuse in their county. NYSHA will add links to other counties as they pass laws to set up registries and post them online.
