It finally has happened, a major accident with dogs being transported. Had this come under laws currently on the books regarding transports of animals, this may not have happened.
Are you the one who put these dogs on a transport to a country who still sells shelter dogs to research? Are you the one who sent these dogs to a country where 1 out of 3 citizens believe in eating dogs? Why didn't this Canadian 'rescue' pull from their own shelters, Canada has a pet overpopulation problem as well.
These 'rescues' in California don't know who they are dealing with, they don't know where these dogs end up and they don't care. They are with No Kill and the motto is outta sight, outta mind.
Pulling up regulations for transporting cargo in California, even if you aren't being paid, you are considered a commercial vehicle if you transport cargo especially for others. You need a commercial license. These regulations about securing and checking your cargo make complete sense. If the transporters did this, there might not have been an accident and dead animals.
