Albany County, NY, has created legislation requiring a registry for convicted animal abuse offenders, 16 years of age and older. First-time offenders will appear on the registry for 10 years and will be banned from buying, adopting or having possession of an animal during  those ten years.  Animal shelter, pet stores or breeders must check this registry prior to adopting out or selling a pet.  See this article for additional information:

Thank you people of Albany, NY.
