    It's pet-oriented, but it's still worth reading it. I know that posting text, particularly a lengthy article, is frowned upon. I'm going to post it anyway because it would be a shame if the article disappeared at a later date.

    Scary part is that they confirmed the ugliness of the bad ones having "increased" such a horrible thing, that is why education and these types of lists need to go out for people to be aware!

    As has been mentioned on this and other threads, the lack of oversight and regulation on both the state and federal levels and the few limited restrictions in place (and not followed) simply put out the welcome mat for those that see this as an easy scam. The only way to stop it is to report those found and work on local and state regulations. Proof of fiscal responsibility, ability to care for animals, volunteer or paid staff availability etc along with the already existing regulations regarding reporting of income, registration with the state etc would be places to start.
