Around 4 MILLION cats and dogs are killed every year in American shelters alone. There is no reason we should allow breeding when there are so many animals that need good home. I am petitioning that cities and states across America pledge to stop over breeding. Since this will be fought by those who breed cats and dogs for a living, we should enact a law for only so many breeders per state (determined by that state) to continue breeding under strict guidelines including but not limited to a very large fine per year, which will go to the shelters, and a restriction of how many cats and dogs they breed. The breeders will be responsible for insuring they go to good home, or will be fined.
