I am an animal activist from Guam (a U.S. Territory). Laws regarding animals is a topic dear to my heart. While I am not currently in the pet industry, I whole-heartedly pledge and support rescue causes. I would like one day to start my own non-profit, perhaps even an organization that pushes for better animal legislation.
