PetSmart has started responding to complaints with a template email.
Jun 5, 2013 — Cookie Cutter Email States:
"Thank you for your and expressing your concerns. PetSmart Charities has terminated Allen Babcock Rescue as an in-store adoption partner for violating policies and procedures. This termination does not prohibit the organization from accessing other programs offered by PetSmart Charities such as grant funding for spay and neuter programs, emergency relief or educational opportunities."
Babcock Rescue has personally NEVER received a written response from corporate of any kind indicating that they were "terminated as an in store pet partner" which in 14 years of active rescue has never violated any policy.
The fact PetSmart can turn their backs on such a dedicated rescue group after such a long relationship does not say much for their character or that they even care for the animals.
