I completely agree with you missyswelden. And Amethyst, that was a Petsmart but none the less horrible.

But this abuse is just plain sick, sick sick! Inhumane and disgusting. Zoo, you may not want people to get worked up about this but lord help me, all people with this ever-dwindling amount of sympathy deserve to rot in the bowels of hell. How can you have such a black heart - how can you just throw away a live animal and then just go about your day?

Wow ...

Ok, quick update: I have contacted the (corporate headquarters) for Petco and spoke to a Communications Representative and They transferred me to someone they said was management but how do I know for sure? Of course they seemed appalled and promised me that they would look into the allegation. I will suprise them with another call later next week to make sure they upheld their part. I have filed a complaint with the BBB online--it's amazing how many complaints a company can actually have before being investigated!! Our petco, not suprizingly, has had numerous complaints.
Our Aspca is the same as our humane society and they pretty much were not interested in what I had to tell them. I asked them what they might do if I called and told them that I witnessed 20 puppies being tossed from about 30 feet up and then the ones who had been injured in the fall just were discarded of? Does no one realize that these birds are smarter than most animals?? I have a german shepherd who is extremely bright and I love him with all my heart, but I haven't yet taught him to talk!!!!!
I am still working on my bit to put in the local paper. I have to be able to reach people who are and who are not bird lovers and this will be tricky. I also have to do it without too much emotion, but enough to make people take notice! Any ideas on some things to write would be appreciated.

Kudos to you. What else did the ASPCA say to you?

good job smile you are doing the right thing

who exactly did you talk to at the aspca???

you probally talked to some operator or volunteer phone person ... if i were you i would actually go there and show them the pictures and tell them they need to do something about it.

or go to the websites and call the national office and complain.

They pretty much told me that they had 19 cases to investigate before me and that these cases took priority. I asked them exactly when they could get around to looking in to this and they said that they could not give me an exact date. It was pretty much a blow off. So now, I have an issue with our Aspca too lol. Maybe by the end of this week I will have ruffled everyones feathers in this town (no punn intended lol).

depending on where you live there are different animal laws.I would file an official report with the police, aspca and any animal rights group were you live.I also would alert the media.what a horrible way to treat any animal.I hope they get a big fine.


when you wish upon a star,you pray you wish comes true.

Yeah, I know locally there is a trouble shoter with ABC 11 News and she goes and helps out people who have had problems with the law and are or are being ignored by the people who can do something about their problem.
