Over 1000,000 dogs and cats roam and die in the streets of Puerto Rico.  Every hour 800 are killed in shelters because there is no space and no one adopts them.  Facebook has MANY pages where the selling of animals is allowed without having the required permits to do so by Law.  This has given way to terrible violations and puppy mills of dogs and cats that only suffer.  When these animals are of no use to their owners or get sick, they are thrown away into the streets.  This worsens the overpopulation problem that rescuers face everyday without any help from the government.  Alejandro García Padilla, you have the power to put a stop to these unethical and illegal practices.  The Law 154 has to be amended NOW to include these Facebook pages. 

"Ever occur to you why some of us can be this much concerned with animals suffering? Because the government is not. Why not? Animals don't vote."
