Please help me out.
I am going to guess the majority of you guys know how horrible some pet stores are to their animals, and how it may possibly be better if some weren’t around. Well I am out to make one thing happen, and I do need your help.
The closing of a pet store, or even multiple ones in my area.
no, this does not include the complete closing of them. I’d just like some of the animals there to be taken off the market. The /supplies/ they sell don’t need fed.
The Pet-co in my neighborhood is horrible. When I go there, the animals are all dying or on their way to death. Baby Chinese water dragons are given crickets too big for them (as well as bearded dragons), which resulted in my current rescues toe(s) to be chewed off. There are at least 30 or more Anoles kept in the same enclosure together, dying from MBD from what I have seen. 80% of all the enclosures there are no bigger than a small dog crate.
Before I plan to call them out on their bull, I plan to negotiate with them, honestly. Would you guys be willing to help me out in writing some proper care sheets for people interested in the pets there? There’s so many to do and I can’t do this alone. If you’re interested just send me an ask.
If this store doesn’t agree to go through with making sure educated people buy their pets, then I’m going to try and take them on legally. By working there and getting more information to how their pets are stocked, cared for, shipped, who buys them and much more, I’ll have more evidence against them.
Do you guys have any suggestions for me? Anything helps.
I would contact corporate. I work for PetSmart so I’m not aware of how PetCo works, but I’m sure they are the same and are very strict. I’m sure policies are being broken at that PetCo.
