Pet Stores profiting on puppies and kittens and predatory sales/loans...

While homeless/abandoned animals sit in (and overflow out of) shelters.  IF this this antiquated profit driven business must exist, we can at least hold them to the same standards as Animal Shelters. If Pet Stores really care about animals, they should partner with local shelters to adopt out homeless ones and stop lining their (and horrible breeders with awful track records) pockets on vulnerable young animals. We can and should do better.
