There really is no excuse to allow this to continue. Each of us can work in our communities to raise awareness for those who live under a rock. Sometimes all it takes is a couple of phone calls. If you see a pet store, check it out, how are the animals treated, where do they come from? From some reason, we don't have a single pet store operating in this town. Not anymore.
