  THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND  ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section  1.    Subdivision  1  of  section  402 of the agriculture and
markets law, as amended by chapter 110 of the laws of 2012,  is  amended
to read as follows:
  1.  The  name  and  address  of  the  person from whom each animal was
acquired. If the person from whom the animal was obtained  is  a  dealer
licensed  by  the  United States department of agriculture, the person's
name, address, and federal dealer identification number. If  the  person
from  whom  the  animal was obtained is a dealer licensed by the depart-
ment, the  person's  name,  address,  and  state  dealer  identification
number.  In  the  case  of  cats,  if  a cat is placed in the custody or
possession of the pet dealer and the source of origin  is  unknown,  the
pet  dealer  shall state the source of origin as unknown, accompanied by
the date, time, and location of receipt. Notwithstanding the  provisions
of  this  subdivision, no pet dealer shall knowingly buy, sell, exhibit,
transport, or offer for sale, exhibition, or transportation  any  stolen
animal.  No  pet dealer shall knowingly sell any cat or dog younger than
eight weeks of age. NO PET DEALER SHALL SELL ANY BIRD AT RETAIL THAT HAS
NOT BEEN FULLY WEANED; PROVIDED, HOWEVER, THAT A  PET  DEALER  MAY  SELL
SUCH BIRD IF:
  (A)  DISCLOSURE IS MADE BY THE PET DEALER IN WRITING TO THE BUYER THAT
THE BIRD IS NOT WEANED;
  (B) THE PET DEALER PROVIDES TRAINING TO THE BUYER ON PROPER HAND-FEED-
ING OF THE BIRD OR HAS A REASONABLE BELIEF THAT THE BUYER POSSESSES SUCH
KNOWLEDGE; AND

                      [ ] is old law to be omitted.
