No big surprize here. Petland is hands down the worst. They also treat their fids like crap.

I'm glad to see the Humane Society is doing their best to make Petland be held accountable. It's so wrong that puppy mills even exist! There would be far less of them if places like Petland didn't give them business!

Petland seems to be the worst chain store by far when it comes to animal treatment. I cannot tell you how many different times I have seen stories about cruelty in Petland. Our local Petland closed down last summer, and boy was I glad. They had a caique in there that looked ill as could be and was in a parakeet size cage. I felt so bad for the birds that were there, it broke my heart!

Do ya wanna make a difference?
Its easy, cost nothing other than a piece of paper and a envelope and a small fraction of time.

Dear store manager,
I stopped into your store today to check on the animals under your care.
I checked the water to assure it was clean and if the animals had the proper food.
I checked there living conditions to see if they had enough room.
I basically checked everything to assure the animals were being properly cared for.
I have made note of my findings and will be returning to your store in a few days to check on the animals again.

Sincerely

____________________________



Place the letter in a envelope and seal it, write store manager on the envelope.
Its up to you, either hand it to an employee or the Manager.
Sign it if you wish, it would be better if you did, but not nessasary.

I do this often, keeps them on there toes....and "It Works".

My wife, is not as nice as I am, Pet store managers actually cringe when seeing her in there store.

YOU CAN HELP,YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE

I have never seen a petland store, hope this closes them down once & for all.

BW I like that letter I'm going to cut & paste it to my file to save for future use, thanks.

The difference between kids and parrots is that it's funny when a parrot talks back.
