Michigan ends pet shop inspections, but are they needed?
The Michigan Department of Agriculture is no longer regulating pet stores and riding stables, a move that saves the state about $150,000 a year, but one that advocates contend endangers animals.

We can't all be dependent on the state for our every need. We must start to look out for ourselves, at least a little. Look things over a bit before you purchase a pet, how hard is that? The state is in trouble, yet many aren't willing to help at all.

This is unbelievable. These so called pet shops are selling puppies for $599.00 and they are from puppy mills. These puppies are neglected and abused. How would you like to be in a cage no bigger than you with no water or food, no heat, in your own feces, and walking on wire. Yes its very hard on that pet. This is going on all through michigan. Pollywood pets at gilbrater trade center in mt. Clemens is just ONE example!!!

This is truly an outrage that pet stores are forcing people with guns, knives and other weapons to purchase these pets. They are forced to view decrepit dying animals in smelly cages and even buy extra supplies on their way out. Where are pet owner rights anyway?
