I know this topic has been discussed several times but I just HAVE to vent. I am so furious! I was out at the mall running a few errands today and stopped in a pet store (I normally don't shop them as they sell puppies and kittens) but was looking for a particular car bed I was told they stocked. Anyhow, as I passed the puppy prison cells I saw a bouncing Blenhiem boy among the other unfortunate little ones. He seemed to be doing fine. I hated to see him there but he did at least appear healthy. But then things got worse! All alone and shaking in her cage was a teeny, tiny Tri. I was told she had been there for two weeks and she was ALMOST 8 weeks old. I, of course, asked to hold her. I couldn't believe her condition. Skinny, skinny, skinny! Yellow gunk in her eyes and nose; she was coughing and sneezing up a storm. I am just heart sick about her. I plan to spend the evening trying to contact via e-mail any agency that might be able to step in and save her. I can't image she can possibly last much longer. I asked the clerk what was going on with her and she said: "Some people put a hold on her a week ago but never came to get her. We don't take them out of their cages except to clean once someone says they wants to buy them. You are the first one to hold her in a week." That little girl hasn't been held in 7 days!!! She must be so, so scared! When I asked if they were doing anything about her health and weight I was told that they were putting some "gravy" on her food but she wasn't eating very well and they were trying to hand feed her. The "vet check" wasn't going to happen until the end of next week since they had missed this Friday's scheduled "inspection."
If anyone knows specifically who I should contact in Indianapolis, please PM me ASAP! I know this store has been cited many times for poor conditions and for selling sick animals. I would love to make it impossible for them to continue selling puppies and kittens. Thanks for letting me vent!!
