      What a sad story... I can't believe there are still no basic regulations for breeding facilities with less than 11 females for example. From time to time I get shocked by finding out things like this. It's good that there are people who want to make a change. Thanks!

      We appreciate your efforts in getting breeders to adhere to minimum humane animal treatment standards. Another challenge I see is to get these standards enforced when passed. These wonderful animals deserve to live happy fulfilling lives. We will support efforts such as yours. Thank you!
