The Path Ahead for Pet Welfare & Licensing

Marisa Heath at Canine & Feline Sector Group reveals that the legislation should cover a wide range of different businesses, including
the supply chains, wholesalers, consolidators, breeders, franchisees, home vendors, very small single-branch pet shops and the huge public-facing chains.
