    is this true?

    or are petsmart jerks?

    the lil pamphlet thing about doves said that they can be safely kepts with zebra finches.

    im not looking to buy any, im just wondering, cause i know zebras are aggressive

    Re: is this true?

    yet another lie to us then. i really wanna smack them. just like they put cedar bedding in the small animal's bedding area. it should be with the dogs, cause one its FOR dogs and two its not good for em.

    petsmart makes me mad sometimes, but then i have to depend on it for somethings, as its either them or the jerk, frank,

    and the pamphlets were for diamond doves.

    Maybe, maybe in a big aviary it would be okay. Not in a normal, house-sized cage though. Some people might think it is, but I disagree on putting different species together like that unless you have a really big cage.

    Don't trust anything a pet store employee says, always double check the info you get. I used to work at a local pet store which was great, but I still say don't trust pet stores.

    see thats what i thought. and i wouldnt put species together either.

    and i dont trust petsmart employees. i wanna be one though, to improve the pets lives any way i can, and so that way, i can make sure the people are INFORMED about what they need.
    i may not know a lot about every animal, but i know more than the petsmart corp. does

    I wouldn't! Just because you join and become the best employee there does not mean there aren't still crapppy ones all over the country. Don't support a company like that! You might be able to educate the employees, but if you get an idiot that wants to buy you have to sell. I don't even buy things there because I don't support them.

    Why not try a bird rescue or club? I do foster/volunteer work for our clubs here

    Re: is this true?

    I only shop at Petsmart when I need to, and I would never buy a pet there. I think it should be a law that people should take a tet before they can work at Petsmart. For example, if someone wanted to work in the small animal section, they would need to pass the test about small animals. Then all the employees would be knowledgeable. I know that is never going to happen, though.

    this is the closest thing we have. me, and two other people are the only ones that can tell a finch from a canary, a keet from a teil, and a macaw from a parrot. people here are idiots,

    i wanna club for that, but only three people isnt near enough support

    Re: is this true?

    diamond doves and finches = fine
    large doves and finches, if you can accomodate = fine

    as to you wanting to work there, dont waste your breath. you think they will listen to you? HAHA you think they will change because of you? HAHA you spend years and help the odd customer, but at the end of the day, nothing will change. they are a huge business you are one tiny part timer.


    dont waste your breath. trust me.

    they have power, but without us, theyre nothing.just like celebs. someone with money needs to take over petsmart and run things right way. not oprah though. i dont like her. or tom cruise. how bout ellen, shes funny.

    and yeah, but i have the rest of my life to deal with it. and unfortunaley im part of it. i wish i was petsmarts ceo, or bee able to pull a cmas carol thing and force an epiphany on him

    that made me laugh so much! LOL you write to her! haha get her to take over

    eventually, i feel that they will go under and people will face up to their sins, but until that time, we should do our best to boycott them
