Hello. I'm writing to ask that VDACS please strengthen its proposed standards of care for pet shops. Pet shops should be required to engage a licensed veterinarian to develop protocols for the care of animals in their custody and they should face the same civil penalties that animal shelters face if they violate state law. Thank you.
