Attorney General Letitia James says Shake A Paw will pay $300,000 to approximately 190 customers who they illegally and knowingly sold sick puppies to at locations on Long Island.
The attorney general's office says Shake A Paw will be required to change its business practices as the result of an investigation that found Shake A Paw kept dogs in inhumane conditions and sold critically sick puppies, which in some cases died days or weeks after purchase.
“New Yorkers who purchase a dog are seeking loyal and loving additions to their families. Unknowingly buying a sick puppy can be downright heartbreaking,” said James. “Not only did Shake A Paw’s owners treat the dogs in their care despicably, they defrauded their customers by lying about their health, leaving many families stuck with expensive veterinary bills."
The attorney general's office says it will distribute the money to impacted customers.
