Strengthening Animal Laws for Pet Stores

Please be kind to animals and strengthen all laws that apply to them. Please do not purchase animals from puppy mills or pet store, and don't let your neighbors and friends do that either. Please don't use animals as Christmas presents; they have feelings too and are not something to be disposed of when the joy of a new puppy fades or animal to be tied up or left outside to cry and be alone. Please be kind to animals, they are kind to us, even though we don't deserve it. Thank you.
