You can help the millions of animals sold by PetSmart today by pledging not to set foot in any of its stores until live animals are no longer part of PetSmart's inventory. In a world where millions of animals are abandoned, neglected, or abused or must be euthanized for lack of a good home, no minimally responsible company—let alone one that claims to care about animals—would contribute to their suffering by paying breeding mills to produce them to be sold to unsuspecting customers.
For years, PetSmart has been selling birds and other small animals from massive animal "suppliers," where breeders warehouse tens of thousands of "breeding stock," whose babies (those who survive) are taken away and sold. PetSmart has assured PETA and customers that sick and injured animals in its stores are provided with veterinary care when they need it. But during PETA's undercover investigation in 2006, we documented that more than 100 small animals were deprived of adequate veterinary care and were slowly dying—hidden away in PetSmart's back rooms, out of customers' sight.
Now is your chance to make a statement for animals and tell PetSmart you won't spend a penny at its stores until the company stops selling animals! We want you to take a picture with your companion animals and a sign reading, "We Won't Shop at PetSmart." Just print the sign below—or make your own sign with a marker and a piece of paper—and we will post the pictures on PETA's Flickr page.
Take a picture in which you or your friends tell PetSmart that you won't shop at its stores as long as the company continues to sell animals. Use the form below to post the photo to PETA's Flickr page. For a little inspiration, have a look at everyone else's pics. Taking your photo is easy!
- Print this sign and then take a picture with your companion animal with your digital camera or camera phone.
- Upload your picture using the form below, or e-mail it to Flickr@peta.org. (By sending your photo to this e-mail address, we take that to mean you've read and agreed to the terms of submission.)
