Puppy mills and pet shops

I think any store, private breeder, or animal shelter should be held at the highest standards of care for all animals. Private breeders should go through a registering process and puppy mills and pet shops should have regular inspections and policies to adhere to. Heavy fines should be imposed for any facility violating those procedures.
