Pet stores need to be accountable, just like shelters are

The time has come to make the individuals who are making money off of puppy sales, ACCOUNTABLE for what they are doing. Despite the burgeoning sheltering systems in VA, these puppy peddlers are not only making the crisis worse, they are fully free of any kind of care standard. This needs to stop. 

Thank you for making us proud to be a Virginian.
