NY Pet Shop Dumps Dying Puppies Who Cost Too Much

PLATTSBURGH — The Northern Puppies sign came down late this week and was replaced with a new one in the window that reads “Critter Hut Pet Shop.”

It also advertises a sale — up to 75 percent off on everything in the store, which is located in Plattsburgh Plaza on Cornelia Street.

But signs no longer call it a “going out of business sale,” as was promoted a few weeks ago when the Northern Puppies sign remained in place.

Then, in August, Staley’s husband, Michael, dumped 24 puppies from the shop, many of whom were sick, in various locations in the woods around Clinton County.

He told the Press-Republican he did so because he couldn’t afford the veterinarian care for them.
