Proposed Regulations for Pet Stores

Municipal and nonprofit animal shelters in Virginia are held to high welfare standards.    

Please upgrade and strengthen the proposed VDACS regulations so that for-profit pet stores be held to at least the same standards of care in order to protect animals and consumers alike.
