    I know I've been there before and I was really disappointed, I hoped that they would have some nice crabs there but...I guess not. I went there looking for good crabs and all I got was disappointment. It was very disappointing.

    I have been there before too and the conditions of the hermit crabs tank were horrible. They had very little sand and of the 5 tiny dime sized crabs that they had in there 3 were dead and out of their shells. I took my girls out of that store so fast, I didn't want them seeing the dead crabs.

    People these days -sighs- I truly believe people should not be allowed to work at Pet places without actual knowledge about the animals they are trying to sell. Its frustrating going to pet places, ask them how to care for the pet and the employees not know anything about the things they are selling..I think I'll actually write these guys a letter -.-

    I know this was posted a couple months ago, but I had a problem with pet supplies plus and I emailed corporate and they got back the store right away! If you have a problem with them contact them! Its kind of a local business (it started in mi). The problem was taken care of within two days!
    One person makes a difference =]

    I didn't even have to finish reading the whole story to know what you were talking about.

    It's a known fact; Pet stores DO NOT take care of their pets.

    It's very sad, and hopefully they will stop and take a look at the damage, maybe someday.

    Go to the store and talk to them. It usually works better. I'm working on the petsmart near me. I've tried two people and nothing has happened yet though.:( I prefer to talk to people on the internet but usually you can get more things done when you can give them the long list of things they do wrong and answer any questions a lot faster.

    All the Pet Supplies Plus stores that I've been to in Florida are wretched. :mad: Most of their crabs have missing limbs that have fallen off somewhere in the tank and was left there by employees!:eek: Many places that sell hermit crabs often only offer the crabs painted shells so they can raise their prices for "fancy crabs..." :mad:

    They are horrible. I'm not impressed with anything of theirs. I've looked at their fish, and like so many other pet stores, they carry tatooed fish. Yes... fish injected with dye. PetSmart and Petco also care these fish- the brightly colored neon pink, green, and yellow fish. They're actually zebra striped danios injected with dye. Horrible! Not a big fan of any place that would mutate/mistreat animals to make an extra buck.

    I didn't even have to read the whole story to know what what you would say.

    It's a known fact; Pet stores DO NOT take care of most of their pets.

    Honestly I don't think spamming their mailboxes with mail will do much, it's a nationwide company, which means they wouldn't close even if you sued them.

    That's so horrible! :( Those poor hermit crabs! Does Petsupplies plus have an e-mail? I heard PetSmart is really bad, too. Why would they dye those fish? One, it's so cruel, and two, those fish look much more beautiful without the dye!
    Although it may seem like all pet stores do not take care of their pets, a store called Pet Goods is the exception to this rule! All of the animals there seem happy and well-treated. The hermit crabs actually got the proper care! They were in a glass 20g with eco earth, lots of climbing toys, fresh and salt water, and lots of extra shells. I don't remember what they fed them, but the hermit crabs seemed really happy and healthy! This is where I got Crusty and Sky.

    Yes I agree. Every pet store mistreats pets I think. Even the reptiles. I just say that the tank you keep your animal in should be at least twice as big as the one at the pet store.
