I work for Petsmart and although I don’t like that we get animals from mass breeders in our defense we DO NOT send back any animals we recieve that are sick.. We treat them and adopt them out. All animals get veterinary care and are well taken care of… Maybe our store is different from others but our procedures are to treat and care for the animals as if they are our own…

OKay Hi all I worked for Petsmart for 3 years as a petcare specialist and I did as well deal with the same things that happened in this video A lot of petsmart employee’s are lazy and sometime don’t even medicate or feed and water the animals daily. I know this because I was granted Lead of the whole department and I would constantly have to go behind people just to make sure the animals have proper water and were medicated as far as seeing a vet we did take all of our animals In the Knoxville TN to a vet but it was the employee’s who did not do their job and for the betta’s I do agree I was heart broken to see these little guys like that. Also something that wasn’t shown is how most of the fish came down with parasites such a ICK and rotten mouth and it would circulte through the system I can vouch for the Petsmart in Knoxville that for the most part they did the best to help them but when I worked at other stores I can tell you most animals went un treated. I don't like chain stores like petsmart.

The USDA is currently investigating Holmes Farm, and Petco claims to have broken ties with the farm, YET THEY REFUSE TO NAME THEIR 'NEW' SUPPLIER ! Unfortunately, however, places like this are the rule and not the exception when it comes to farms that supply pet stores with smaller animals like rabbits, hamsters, and guinea pigs.

Petsmart and Petco have the power to help stop this horror by making it a storewide policy that the only animals available in their stores come from shelters and rescues. The ramifications there of would be incredible! A policy like this at the largest pet store chains in the country would strike a huge blow against the puppy mill and animal trafficking trade. And Petsmart and Petco could give homeless dogs, cats, rabbits, and guinea pigs a chance to find a forever family.

Please sign this petition to urge Petsmart and Petco to help put heartless breeders out of business by only selling animals from shelters and rescues. nimals crammed into filthy, crowded plastic bins stacked into shelving units like old bank statements. Living beings deprived of water for days or even weeks. Sick and injured animals denied veterinary care. Emaciated, severely dehydrated animals desperate for water. Animals cruelly killed by being gassed or frozen to death. We’ve seen it time and time again at dealers that sell animals to pet stores, and now we’ve seen it again at Reptiles by Mack, a reptile mill in Xenia, Ohio, that breeds and sells frogs, lizards, turtles, and other animals to pet stores across the country, such as PetSmart.nimals crammed into filthy, crowded plastic bins stacked into shelving units like old books.

That's just it. I so much wanted to talk to my about things, but were afraid too because of the negative reactions in my store. I was getting so frustrated about what was doing on and didn't say anything, but they felt that, and then they fired me over a 30% coupon I let someone use. Was with the company almost 11 years. I have been so disappointed in PetSmart. I don't like where they are headed. It's all about money, not the customers. They treat you like crap. I understand about the speciality department also. I am stress free and alot happier, and will not buy anything from them. When they fired me, my students stop shopping there also.
