Benson's Pet Center: STOP supporting animal cruelty by buying & selling ferrets from the abusive and notorious breeding facility *Marshall Farms*


The quote below is what Benson's Pet Center once said on it's website. However, after the company learned of this petition, it has been removed. This is a clear sign of deception to conumers.

"We work with local shelters to give rabbits and guinea pigs a second chance. Instead of buying from breeders and adding to overpopulation problems, we focus on finding unwanted guinea pigs and rabbits homes. We also try to make sure that any rabbits we sell have been spayed or neutered."

NOW HERE IS THE UGLY TRUTH ABOUT BENSON'S PET CENTER!

Benson's Pet Center fails to mention that it buys ferrets from *MARSHALL FARMS*, an abusive and notorious breeding facility that has the worst reputation in all of USA. Marshall Farms breeds ferrets, dogs and & other animals for scientific research where the animals are cruelly killed. Marshall Farms has been cited repeatedly for violating the bare minimum requirements of the federal Animal Welfare Act (AWA) including inadequate veterinary care, transport violations, improper sanitation, inadequate space, and many other reasons.

Benson's Pet Center must hear from caring consumers. Let the owners know about Marshall Farms and ask them to cut ties with this horrible breeding facility and stop purchasing & selling their ferrets. Ferrets are dying needlessly and *we* the consumers can stop this by not shopping at Benson's Pet Center and signing this petition.

Letter to
Owners: Frank & Ryan Kramer Benson's Pet Center
Dear Frank & Ryan Kramer,

I just learned that Benson's Pet Center buys & sells ferrets from *MARSHALL FARMS*, an abusive and notorious breeding facility that has the worst reputation in all of USA.

Marshall Farms breeds ferrets, dogs and & other animals for scientific research where the animals are cruelly killed. Marshall Farms has been cited repeatedly for violating the bare minimum requirements of the federal Animal Welfare Act (AWA) including inadequate veterinary care, transport violations, improper sanitation, inadequate space, and many other reasons.

As caring a consumer, I urge you to stop supporting animal cruelty. Please do the right thing and cut ties with MARSHALL FARMS. Until then, I refuse to support Benson's Pet Center.
