CALVERTON - A Riverhead judge has decided the fate of dogs being sold by an East End animal rescue.

The judge ruled that animals already at Precious Pups of Calverton can stay, but the shop cannot sell or transfer animals while the case remains in litigation.

As News 12 has reported, the facility was temporarily shut down after complaints by customers who say they were duped into adopting sick dogs.

The attorney general says Precious Pups has been involved in “fraudulent” practices. However, the group denies the charges.

The defense attorney tells News 12 that the ruling shuts down the rescue group and leaves six people unemployed and several volunteers out of work. 

The judge ruled that any deliveries of dogs must go to other no kill shelters. The roughly 80 dogs at the facility can stay, but cannot be adopted.

Both sides are due back in court on Sept. 10.
