Hudson is looking to pass some of the strictest animal protection laws in the province.
They include restrictions on the selling and breeding of animals and steep fines for animal abusers.
If passed, the law would prohibit the sale of all animals, and only let pet stores advertise animals that are up for adoption.
It's hoped the move will discourage animal mill owners, who often breed cats and dogs with little regard for their well being.
Animal rights activist Ewa Demianowicz supports the law.
"It stops the problem at its source," she says. "The puppy mill owners have less places to sell their stock, so they're breeding less."
But the law will affect all breeders, not just illicit ones - something Demianowicz considers a positive.
"People looking to breed dogs will need a permit, so there's another level of protection and restriction," she says. "It covers the whole spectrum of reproduction and breeding and sales."
Anyone caught abusing an animal can face a fine beginning at $2,500 for a first offence and ranging up to $7,500 for a third, as well as civil and criminal charges.
