Freeport, NY - July 7, 2016 - New York State Senator Kemp Hannon and Freeport Village Mayor Robert T. Kennedy will join dozens of dogs and their companions, along with officials from the the Nassau County SPCA and Jill Burkhardt of North Shore Animal League America, on Thursday July 7, 2016 at 2pm at Hudson on the Mile in Freeport to celebrate the Doggie Dining Bill that was signed into law allowing dogs to dine with their owners or companions at most outdoor cafes. 

 

The new legislation, sponsored by Sen. Hannon, allows leashed dogs to dine in outdoor restaurants, cafes and patios with their owners or companions. The legislation was signed during the winter, when most outdoor eating spots were closed. The world famous Nautical Mile in Freeport is home to hundreds of restaurants and outdoor cafes.

 

Hudson's on the Mile Restaurant is opening a special doggie dining area and will be unveiling the first legal doggie food menu so patrons can enjoy dining with their pets.

 

The new law requires a separate section and entrance for dogs so they do not pass through the establishment and restaurant employees are prohibited from having direct contact with them. Dogs must also be on a leash. California was the first, and now New York is the second, State in the nation to sign a law allowing dogs to eat with companions.  It is an individual restaurant's choice to allow doggie dining. There are over one million licensed dogs in New York State.

 

When: Thursday July 7, 2016 at 2pm

Where: Hudson's On the Mile, 340 Woodcleft Ave, Freeport, NY 11520
