As of 27 September 2011, Silver Lining Kennel and Pic-A-Pet Plus pet stores now also hold Wisconsin license number 268586-DS and have upgraded to become compliant with the minimum Standards of Care specified by Act 90/s.173.41 - WI Dog Sellers Program. These photos and commentary are from June 2008, prior to the passage of Wisconsin Act 90/s.173.41, when Silver Linings was regulated only by the USDA.
