Animal Welfare


I’m completely opposed to animal selling business because people have a tendency to care about their own profit. They don’t care about animals well-being. That yields to abuse, neglect and exploitation. Animals are not merchandise. Please, prohibit all kinds of businesses that involve animals. Please, ensure animals well being. They were created for us to enjoy. It is our responsibility to take good care of them. They don’t need the suffering that human beings can cause.

Thank you.
