This definitely is a step in the right direction: as long as there still are pet stores selling live animals there needs to be some strong regulations where these animals come from.
“Great news! Gov. Terry McAuliffe has signed legislation that will prohibit Virginia pet stores from acquiring dogs from some of the worst puppy mills in the nation. The new law will also crack down on unregulated sales of dogs and cats at flea markets, parking lots and rest stops.
HSUS Virginia State Director Matthew Gray said, ´We applaud Governor McAuliffe and the Virginia General Assembly for enacting real, tangible protections, not just for puppies, but also for all Virginians who are seeking to add a dog or cat to their family.´”
Thank you to all who supported this new law.
Thank you for spreading the word on animal awareness!
