Pet Store Regulations

The Commonwealth of Virginia has an opportunity to step in and protect animals by providing the same regulations as provided for shelters. Please extend the same protections to pets in retail settings as we do pets in shelters. This is an easy one, legislators. Please choose compassion and oversight to protect pets regardless of where they come from. Thank you.
