My Comments On PETsMART
Well, I don't have any nice stories to tell about PETsMART. I wrote to them concerning their use of glue traps in their stores to kill mice and rats (and they also sell domestic mice and rats). I got a rather prepackaged letter in response:

From: "Jessica Cage" <JessianneCage@petsmartdirect.com>

Dear Mr. Fisher,

Thank you for taking the time to share your concerns with us. Weíve seriously investigated and tested the use of glue traps for some time.

We've explored many alternatives, taking into account many important factors, including associate health and safety, the nature of the glue trap, itís effectiveness and cost. However, after a period in which we didnít use glue traps, we determined they were necessary in certain circumstances.

High on our list of considerations was the fact that glue traps capture all rodent fecal matter, urine and hair (which can carry disease and other health risks). This provides a healthier and safer environment for our associates. We continue to research new approaches to pest control, recognizing that no matter what method we use, short of allowing rodents to run free, there will be some level of disagreement.

Again, thank you for making us aware of your concerns.

Sincerely,

Jessica

I wrote back to them, suggested they seal up the holes through which the pests get into their stores, and said that they wouldn't be using any of MY money to pay for those traps, and got the following reply. I think it shows just where PETsMART stands on the issue. It's easier for them to simply cause those intruders a horrible suffering death, creating a vacuum which nature will fill with... more intruders.

Corporate Myopic Apathy in action.
Thanks for clearing that up, Jessica.
I think I'll take my business elsewhere.

Euthanasia Death Toll
Shelter animals euthanized since January 1, 2001, because they couldn't find homes:

"Rabbits will always do rabbity things"
If you buy a rabbit from a pet store or breeder, a rabbit in a shelter will die
The average life expectancy of a domestic rabbit dumped in the wild is three days.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Rabbits are the third most popular pet in the US, and the third most surrendered at shelters
Rabbits belong inside the home, litterbox-trained and with the rest of the family. Really?
Do NOT use cedar shavings in any way with small mammals!! Why not?
Bunnies and Easter don't mix!!!
Huh?   Really?   Are you sure?   Seriously?
Don't breed or buy
while shelter pets die!
~~~~~~~~ For The Love Of Bunnies ~~~~~~~~
There is no greater joy than ending a life of suffering without ending a life.
