if you buy stuff from even a good petco you are supporting the bad ones too.

I have to say I will have to keep buying from Petco and Petsmart merely because I can't drive myself to the few local petstores we have around us. We even have an amazing bird store called the Birdie Boutique, but since my parents will only drive me to those places once in a while, I will still have to buy my main supplies from the chains. Sorry. smirk


RIP Jayka, Grayson, and Emmit

I'm going to try to convince my parents to take me somewhere besides petco for the stuff Jess needs at all costs.

I would go for it. If I can convince my parents to take me to another pet store than I will. But I can sort of see my resolve breaking down as I realize how inconvenient that might be.

yea i just feel so badly for the birds that i want to rescue them:( but as for supplies im for sure not goin there anymore.

and im all for boycotting ... but as a career activist i know how much work that takes and how little effect it actually has ... it has to be a severely massive thing for it to even make a dent.

but on a personal level it does ease the personal consceince so in that its totally worth it.

i jsut wana go buy every single bird they have frown

I thought that would be a good idea too, -buy as many pets as you can. but they are just going to get more.
