My wife and i were killing some time today waiting for her son so we stopped in a pet store that was on the way. what a mess. its one of the everything types. small animals birds dogs cats hamsters rabbits guinea pigs anyway they have all the pets in aquarium like cells. enclosed glass in the front and some type of fiber board looking stuff for the walls and a hole for lighting in the tops. the dogs had a cage like material on the bottom, no flat surface at all. no way to tell by looking in the windows what kind of air flow was being supplied. the dogs werent so bad at least they looked clean. the rabbit things were dirty and smelled terrible. the ferret box had a giant pile of crap in one corner. the bird windows were the worst. they were the same type as the dogs but there was a cage material instead of plastic window in front. but it was coated and most of the coating was "chewed" off. one of the cages had two small parrots but there was no bird stand or anything at all in the cage for the bids to sit on. so both were just walking around on the bottom and on the front of the cage itself. the stuff on the bottom was some type of mulched fiber, nothing flat for the birds to stand on. the birds themselves were sick looking. the crown feathers looked wet the tail feathers seemed to be falling out or looked chewed on. just sad. the other 4 or 5 bird "rooms" didnt look much better. at least they had a thing on the side to sit on. this was one of those all in one pet shops like you might find in a mall pet shop, this is a stand alone off to the side of a strip mall in northeast philly. i was appalled it's a good 45 minutes to an hr away but we're tempted to go back there and take some shots with my camera phone. i just dont know what i would do with them. is there someplace to report this stuff to? i really hate these places why do people continue to buy animals from these craps houses.
