Stop harm towards pet abuse (animal suppliers)

We the people Richard, Bianca, Izzy, and Sergio are writing a petition about PETCO along with PetSmart  suppliers that are mistreating the animals.  They need to stop mistreating animals because they are abusing them and not giving them the proper care. They torture the animals such as the mice and rats are tortured with the snake in their cage until the snake is ready to eat them. They Crowd the animals together such as fish that is why they get stuck in the filter because of that they would have to take them out of the tank to put them in the freezer, it is impossible to separate those fish who are still alive and breathing but too weak to swim out of the filter, so they are thrown into the freezer with the dead ones. Some of the employers are careless and don't take care of the animals well enough some animals are hurt and they don’t look over their care to be better the animals. We need more people to be aware of animals because they have feelings like us and we are not thinking about how they feel so what we need to do is find a better way for the animals to not be abuse towards because their innocent. We believe every living this has the right to be free and living without any harm so we have no right to take someone's life no matter if it's a pet or a human because we all have feelings. Once when going to PETCO my Sister's friend bought a snake and took it home she was excited about having a new pet but as days passed by she noticed that her snake was having problems eating so she decided to take it to the vet. The vet noticed that the snake was sick by something and it wasn't being treated. As further researching we saw a video that PETA put online about animal abuse in PETCO, which made us realize that the animals have been mistreated by the animal suppliers.

It is a Video that shows how the workers at PETCO are treating the animals.


Investigators have also revealed horrific animal abuse at the breeding facilities that supply PETCO and PetSmart, among others pet store owners have mistreated the animals. These links are tied to animal cruelty stories and motives behind it. Some of these links are graphic due to videos and images of animals who have been abused. Aside from that these links inform people of how big of an issue this is and how it's a major issue that occurs all the time. Not only is this an issue here locally but everywhere and there is a lot of heartless people out there that hurt poor innocent animals.

This website is about pet store owners not giving the animals the proper care. They found many of the animals were in need of water, food and other resources that the owners did give the animals. These owners were filed against charges towards the animal abuse after they investigated the case towards many of the animals subsequently dying.

5.http://www.petakids.com/save-animals/pet-stores/
This website talks about a few of the things that the pet store owners hide from us such as how the animals are being treated, were the animals come from, animals dying, and the journey of the pets are going through.


Many people might  think that it is a good place for the animals but they are not there for the good reason because they're being harmed without much care. They believe that it is best for them to be in the pet store instead of being out in the street going through much danger without any food when they don’t know what is behind all of their pain. Those who believe that PetSmart and PETCO aren’t a dangerous places is because they have bought animals from those places and don’t really see how the animals are being taken care of behind everything but just see the animals that are in good condition.

 
PETCO and PetSmart are huge companies, They make a lot of money from the customers. Stopping the selling of animals in stores. Both PetSmart and PETCO report 6.7 billion, and 3.15 billion in revenue earned in 2013. Most of this reported revenue comes from sources other than the sale of live animals. The fact that selling animals at these pet stores is not necessary for the corporate pet stores to survive.


PETCO abusing animals has been happening for a long time and people are still not aware of the things happening behind everything, they don’t really know how they animals are treated. That is why people need to be more aware of what is happening not only in PETCO but in other pet stores to not support them in abusing the animals and in making a change against animals suffering.  We need to let others know who don’t reach this through social media. It might not be easy to spot all animal abuse but if we are more aware and press charges against animal abusers we can make a change. Every living thing has the right to be safe and live free without any harm. So what we need to do about it is not buy from PETCO and other pet stores abusing animals and fight for everyone's right including animal rights.
