Animal Cruelty
There is no limit to the animal cruelty that some people are capable of. In a Las Vegas pet store something shocking occurs and if it weren't for the pet store's sprinkler systems, all of the dogs and puppies in this pet store would have died.

Police say the woman is actually the owner of the store.

Shocking video shows a man and a woman entering a pet store - and then man sets the store on fire. Watch WSB Atlanta to see how the puppies were saved --> WSB News

It is very important to transport and move your dog safely, effectively, and comfortable. Using professionally built and "Made in USA" dog boxes is very important!
