You really got quite a reply! I was a little confused as to what exactly your question was but as far as Petsmart being incredibly cruel and the documentaion that Peta shows in regard to Petsmart, I can tell you firsthand that it is 100% true. I worked at Petsmart until I could no longer stand seeing so much animal cruelty that I quit. There is a closet in the back of the store which houses ill animals until they die with no help from medication. Also, many of the animals such as hamsters and guiea pigs travel in unheated/non air conditioned trucks with no food or water for hours upon hours. They are fed bad diets. When I worked there they had 6 guinea pigs all with pnemuonia and the vet/managers had no problems watching them all die with no veterninary help. Also, you would be surprised what goes on in the grooming salons when you unable to see your pets...I watched a manager hit a yellow lab. I could go on and on but my point is that while Peta often is not the best role model and does a lot of "iffy" things they do a good job of going a long ways to try making people realize some of the cruelty going on out there.
