HACKENSACK, N.J. — A pet store owner charged with leaving 67 dogs crated overnight in van outside his Paramus store and his brother had their hearing in Hackensack postponed again on Thursday.
The judge gave brothers Vincent and Leonard LoSacco a new trial date of July 21 but warned against further delays.
After surrendering his Paramus business license last month, Vincent LoSacco moved the remaining dogs to his Emerson shop on Kinderkamack Road -- where he offered them for sale at half price — and into the hands of a local animal rescue organization.
Investigators said Leonard LoSacco picked up the crated puppies and drove them to Paramus in April.
Complaints filed by Paramus authorities were be consolidated with 134 counts of animal cruelty against each of them filed by the Bergen County SPCA, LoSacco's attorney said last month.
