The bill was unanimously approved by the Nassau County Legislature and will forbid anyone with a history of animal cruelty from purchasing or adopting an animal in the county. The registry now joins the one in Suffolk County which was established in 2010.

The County's Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Detective Gary Rogers stated,

“It’s a great day for Nassau County."

Convicted animal abusers will have five days from their convictions to register. The database will be maintained by the Nassau County Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. The offender's name, photo, and address will be posted on a website and made available to shelters, pet stores, and breeders.

Failure to register could result in a one year jail sentence.
