Regulate pet stores!

 Pet stores have been allowed to get away with cruel and inhumane practices for far too long. They need to be held to a higher standard, not buy animals from mills, and ensure the health of the pets they are selling. Please do the right thing and either ban them entirely from selling cats and dogs, or force them into compliance. We can do better!
