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 consumers.
"We work with local shelters to give ferrets, rabbits, and guinea pigs a second chance. Instead of buying from breeders and adding to overpopulation problems, we focus on finding unwanted ferrets, guinea pigs, and rabbits homes. We also try to make sure that any animals we sell have been spayed or neutered."
NOW HERE IS THE UGLY TRUTH ABOUT BENSON'S PET CENTER!
Benson's Pet Center buys ferrets from *MARSHALL FARMS*, an abusive and notorious breeding facility, which has the worst reputation in all of USA. Marshall Farms breeds ferrets, dogs, cats, guinea pigs, and countless other animals for scientific research where they 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 and 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.
