Madelyn Reisch started this petition to To show that we notice the neglect

This is important to me and many others because we are sick of how these animals are raised and treated. There has been so many cases of fish dying in tanks and their bodies are left to rot. Hamsters and lizards have been seen starving and kept in horrible conditions. Pet store employees give false instructions on how to take care of pets. The truth is barely ever talked about and I want to show everyone how the pet stores really are. If I get signatures I will show them that you all stand behind me in this when I say pet stores need to take care of their animals more. I am sick of walking into these stores and seeing floating bettas, sick lizards, malnourished Guinea pigs, hamsters chewing on bars, dead animals and employees encouraging new pet owners to get a bad set up for the pet. It is so upsetting to witness the neglect that goes on behind the scenes. Of course, I know not all pet stores are like this but most are. There’s too much wrong here to let this slide anymore. If we can bring attention to them and to other people, maybe we can fix what they have broken. I have seen and taken care of some of the injured and sick pets from these stores including fish. For example,  Spade was too young to be sold (“baby bettas” are too young to be shipped and sold at pet stores, and they often don’t have the ability to survive that kind of stress). He was extremely skinny and had velvet. Marty had a tumor that was not being treated. Lita had a clamped tail and was way too skinny. They could barely get around at all. Harley was really, really skinny and had a hard time moving. She is now healthy and happy. Please help me give a voice to the ones that can’t give themselves a voice.
