YouTube - PETA: PetSmart Pet Providers & Animal Cruelty Hermies may not be mentioned, but if these animals which are typically valued higher than sea and beach creatures, just imagine what petsmarts that get hermies do. If you want to help me and others stop this, please, sign this- People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA): The animal rights organization and or call- 1-800-738-1385, extension 2518 and request they stop selling animals because of the cruel conditions and that you will not but from petsmart if this continues. If i can do it, who feels uncomfortable talking on the phone even with friends and is mortified of strangers, you can, too! (if you're worried about a bad reaction, don't be. The people that answer the phone don't really care about petsmart or what you have to say, but they are forced to take your message and send it out. Make sure you hear them typing, if not, request that they write out the message. But they're nice and do not get defensive at all as long as you're polite.) If you're worried about losing your animal/hermie provider because of this, just think- is thousands, even millions or more of innocent lives of all kinds worth the convience of a close-by shop for your unnecessary needs? i think if anyone wants to call themselves and animal/hermie lover, you should be willing to save as many lives as possible. Instead of getting animals from a place like petsmart where the more you buy the more they torture, choose shelters and pounds- where no matter what, the influx of poor animals will not change whether you go there or not, and these animals are killed if not bought, and and another note, are usually cheaper. I do not wish this to be upsetting to anyone by thinking i am attacking them. I just want to help, and i think you guys do, too. Oh, be careful with the video, it may make you sick. P.S.- i know many people are PETA-haters because PETA can be too extreme. I agree. But not everyone dresses up as chickens and shoves pies in Ronald McDonald's face. Take a peaceful approch that makes an effective statement to the people that does not give a bad name. If you have to run away from what you're doing, it's not the right thing. Thank you, fellow animal and hermie lovers. All those without a voice thank you, too. I apologize if this is not posted properly in the right place or whatever =/ i didn't mean it.
