Dog auctions in Ohio need to be banned!

Dogs sold at auction live in deplorable conditions. Often these dogs live in cages for years where they are stacked on top of each other. The urine from the dogs on top fall below to the dogs beneath them.   

By the time these dogs reach auction they have been bred over and over again. These dogs churn out puppies to be sold at pet stores, on the Internet or at the dog auction in Farmerstown, Ohio. Why is the state of Ohio allowing these auctions to continue? Auctions have been banned in Pennsylvania since 1982. It is time for Ohio to ban these auctions as well.
