Conduct of Pet Stores


Being a person with conscience, I feel compelled to ask that the proposed Regulation of Pet Stores which sell Dogs and Cats (or Puppies and Kittens) be Strict and of at least the same Standards which are applied to Shelters.  Unless penalties are severe, Stores will simply ignore the Regulations.  The MAIN concern of these Stores is to make PROFIT, NOT the WELFARE or ORIGINS of the Animals they sell.   Thank you for your consideration.
