Require Virginia to increase standard of care for pet shops

Recently I learned through PETA that several pet shops in Virginia are not showing potential buyers any paperwork unless they made a purchase of an animal beforehand. Theo practice is unacceptable and could lead to potential abuse of animals. You must require all pet shops to make animal paperwork available upon request.
