Class B Dealers Selling Innocent Lives By Vicki Katrinak In 2009, AAVS’s education department Animalearn released its “Dying to Learn” report, which exposed the use of random source Class B dealers to obtain dogs and cats for education. The report included details on animal welfare violations committed by the dealers, as well as the numbers of animals they sold and their yearly profits. Since then, AAVS has continued to monitor these animal dealers, and their numbers are dwindling. Momentum is now on our side, and it is time to shut down all random source Class B dealers, forever.
