I have encountered numerous issues with this pet supply chain, and enough is enough. Pet Goods located at 1125 Central Park Ave
Scarsdale, NY 10583 is unsanitary, and treats their small animals terribly. 

I have personally witnessed the following over the course of a year:

  • A sickly rabbit: Sides sucked in, loose droppings, lethargic and not alert.  I told a manager, who was EXTREMELY rude and could barely be bothered to stop cursing and acting out with another employee to speak to me. Rabbit was not there when I returned a week later.
  • An employee tossing a box of live rat pups into a plastic bag like they were objects. Ignored me when I expressed he shouldn’t throw live animals.
  • Many, many dead fish floating in tanks.
  • Betta fish in tiny cups, with dirty water. 
  • Parakeets being kept in dirty cages, without enough ventilation, species inappropriate toys (or no toys at all), and being fed an improper seed diet, along with VERY dirty water. 
  • Most recently (April 2015) EXTREMELY overcrowded mice and rat tanks. All the tanks had very stressed out animals, and the substrate was filthy. One tank have THREE DEAD RAT PUPS (and multiple dying ones) who had been there for hours. Dead baby rats, ROTTING, alongside their litter mates and mothers. I told an associate, who was friendly, but clearly not at all concerned about the animals. 

What can you do?

  • Boycott all Pet Goods locations. 
  • Give this location a call at: (914) 472-6050 OR complain in person at 1125 Central Park Ave,Scarsdale, NY 10583. Please, be civil. Threatening will NOT help the animals or get this store to listen to us. 
  • Complain on their Facebook page HERE
  • Contact them via their website HERE
  • Reblog, and share on FB, Twitter etc, and signal boost where you can.

Birds, rodents and fish deserve better than this. All sentient beings deserve to be treated with kindness and respect. 

Harsh Reunion || Mason-Angie

It was a bit late in the afternoon at Eichen’s when a familiar porcelain girl was heading through the walls. She was feeling a bit better, which was just refreshing to the girl. She was humming a bit as she fiddled around with her dress sleeves, heading towards the garden door. She wanted to feel the air against her face, it was one of her favorite things. She didn’t have a clue in the world however, that this would be the return of such a bad chapter in her live. She somehow managed to get about 3 shades paler as she looked up to meet a familiar bob of brown hair. She froze in pure fear, and she would have sworn her stomach had just fell out of her at the sight.

She felt like she was just going to drop dead right there on the garden floor, right there in front of her biggest fear. She wouldn’t let herself, though, she couldn’t . She shut her eyes tight, hoping for him to just be an hallucination. Thats what everyone said, he wasn’t real. He wasn’t really there, was he? She gripped hard at her sleeves, her breathe quickening in fright as her eyes snapped back open to find the sight that he was, in fact, still there.

No no no no no, he can’t be there. he can’t be. It’s just a hallucination, a nightmare. No no. She thought frantically to herself, taking a step back away from the sight
