Stricter Regulations for pet stores

Please pass stricter regulations for pet stores. Stores involved in acts of cruelty should be closed permanently. Stores should have regular inspection. Animals should have regular veterinary services. Stores should have the same requirements as animal shelters. 
Stronger regulations protect animals and consumers.
