USDA/APHIS has proposed new regulations which, if implemented, will effectively end currently exempt hobby breeding now considered as retail pet sellers. Living under USDA licensing is NOT an option for the average retail seller. The average house cannot be converted to a USDA compliant facility. Breeding stock is not allowed in your home. It does not matter how well you think you care for your animals, Federal regulations are not flexible and do not allow for your own discretion. You must strictly adhere to what the regulations and the federal inspector say are acceptable equipment, care, and husbandry practices.

The rule, designed for large commercial operations, will penalize many hard-working Americans caught up under this regulation who are not operating as true businesses. If required to hold a license, you can be fined by USDA when they come unannounced to inspect your property and you are not present.

Send a strong message to Congress asking them to help stop this rule.

it better. Friends will come and go and it's ufrtntunaoe that it took this to realize the kind of people they were. I have learned so much from you and have changed so much in our house thanks to you. I hope to someday cross paths with you because even though my changes are not necessarily because of medical reasons, I want to thank you. We eat so much better because of everything you have said. I knew I didn't feed my kids right, but seeing the improvements you made and how much healthier your family got and how most of your previous eating habits were exactly like ours, was enough to kick my butt into gear and do better for my family. I thank you.I hope Teagan continues to get better and although he has bad days, I hope most of them are good days, he is such a precious little boy and I couldn't imagine everything you have all gone through and shame on those people for judging. Vaccines or no vaccines, medication or not Teagan is a little boy that needed you to be there for him and fight for him and that you did Lindsay and to hell with all those people that think they know better than you his mother! I would've done the same!
