My little tip of the day for those folks out there that still insist on buying from pet stores: Did you ask where they get their pets from? Did they say Rainbow World Exotics? Did you buy it anyway? If so, you the reason for animals suffering needlessly, and you are part of a major problem in companion animal abuses!!! Truth!!! You have just bought your pet from one of the biggest animal brokers …
in the USA, and yes my Canadian friends they sell to our pet stores as well! Rainbow is not alone in their abuses, there are many, many brokers/companies with all the same practices which include: no veterinary care, killings without anesthesia, surgeries preformed on animals by laymen (people without accredited training) also without benefit of proper anesthesia, starvation, and much more! Did you know that animals deemed “unsellable” are used as breeding stock this includes animals with broken limbs, deformities, and much more???? Well now you know, now I hope you take the time to educate yourself on the truth and the reality of pet store pets, this includes back yard and unscrupulous breeders as well! Take the time to visit your local shelter, rescues, and animal control facilities first! if you did just that one thing, just imagine the suffering that one small act could end!!!! Rant concluded!
Please remember that PETA is about PETA, and donations, and not much more! Certainly not animal welfare. However the video does speak the truth about these companies and their actions.
