Regulation re selling of animals from pet store in VA

Thank you for trying to better regulate pet stores when selling dogs and cats. We would ask that you strengthen this to include having a licensed vet develop protocols for sick animals; increase the civil penalties for lapses in animal care standards and make sure the US Dept of Agriculture’s inspection report is readily available to customers. Thank you, Sara Ford, president AWL
