Higher Standards for Pet Stores

Dear Madam or Sir:

     Personal experience convinced me that COMMERCIALIZATION of animals leads to abuse, because MONEY is involved .

     Therefore, I ask that you PLEASE RAISE STANDARDS OF CARE for all pet shops (and also breeders) to protect sentient pets from harm and exploitation.

      Thank you for caring .
