Pet store regulations

Wouldn't it be wonderful if no stores could sell pets?!  So many of these small animal purchases are spur of the moment, without consideration of the long term commitment.  The idea that the suppliers of these animals aren't even held to inspection standards is incredible.

Please make regulations that limit the sale of animals through pet stores.
