So does this mean that you will go to a Mom and Pop type petstore that does breeding in their back room to get your supplies? I'm just curious.
Did I say that in my post?

Instead of ridicule why don't you just say the following:

"Thank you for deciding not to buy from Petco and PetSmart. Please don't buy from small mom and pop stores either as they general deal with backroom breeding."

I didn't come to this board to get pounced on. Thanks for treating a new person so nicely.

To all those who answered and helped in a way that is appreciated I thank you. For now I'll only come to this board if I have a problem and need some help.

For DiscoCavy:

Thank you for deciding not to buy from Petco and PetSmart. I am glad you also know not to buy from small mom and pop stores either as they general deal with backroom breeding. :D

I now go to feed stores in the area that has all I need. At the feed stores, the hay is fresher (I buy by the bale) and the pellets are good quaility for my GP's, my rabbits and my rats.
Glad you mentioned that you are getting the hay by the bale at the feedstore. I found on up the road that sells the Timothy Hay in bales and I am going to get one when I finish what I have now.
I also get pellets from the feed store.
I am really having a tough time finding a place to buy crickets and meal worms for the geckos that is not a pet store that sells animals too. It is frustrating. I thought about catching my own, but have not found any to catch. I heard a cricket on the radio the other day while driving my truck. I thought, wow, somehow there is a cricket in here. Where is it. I turned down the radio to hear it again and realized where it was coming from. DUH! Must have been one of my blonde moments.

I'm sick to death of this thread. There is no debate here - Petco and Petsmart both suck. They both sell animals. There is no excuse for that. Mom and Pop stores that sell animals suck also. There are plenty of stores that don't sell animals available for people to buy supplies at. There are also places available on line.

I'm closing this thread and giving a strong warning to others - DO NOT START ANOTHER THREAD ON THIS TOPIC. The discussion has been exhausted, the answers won't be any different, and any new threads on this topic will be closed. Period. If you're truly interested in reading about Petco and Petsmart, please read through this thread, do a search on the forum, and visit www.peta.org. You'll find all the information you need.
