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

  Section  1.  Paragraph  (a)  of  subdivision 2 of section 353-b of the
agriculture and markets law, as added by chapter  594  of  the  laws  of
2003, is amended to read as follows:
  (a)  Any  person  who  owns or has custody or control of a dog that is
left outdoors shall provide it with shelter appropriate  to  its  breed,
physical  condition  and  the climate. Any person who knowingly violates
the provisions of this section shall be guilty of a violation,  punisha-
ble  by  a  fine of [not less than] UP TO TWO HUNDRED fifty dollars [nor
more than one hundred dollars] for a first offense, [and] a fine of [not
less than one] UP TO FIVE hundred dollars [nor  more  than  two  hundred
fifty  dollars]  for a second VIOLATION and [subsequent offenses] A FINE
OF UP TO ONE THOUSAND DOLLARS FOR A THIRD VIOLATION. Beginning  seventy-
two  hours  after  a  charge  of violating this section, each day that a
defendant fails to correct the deficiencies in the dog shelter for a dog
that he or she owns or that is in his or her custody or control and that
is left outdoors, so as to bring it into compliance with the  provisions
of this section shall constitute a separate offense.
  S  2.  This  act shall take effect on the thirtieth day after it shall
have become a law.
