    Just paid a visit to one of the local Petsmart Stores here
    in my area (MARYLAND) and decided to buy a lovebird and a
    cockatiel. While talking to the salesperson, she asked if
    I wanted to see the other cockatiels in the back to make a
    choice of which one I might want so I stated sure. Well I
    followed her to the back and there in a closet that was
    4x6 were cages stacked about 4 high and 2 wide. There was
    a single light bulb in the ceiling but over all with the
    stacking of the cages it was dull there were cockatiels,
    finches and parakeets in there. The door was open but how
    dismal to be shut in the dark without any ventilation any
    time someone chose to shut the door or all night.
    I spoke to the store manager about the situation and he
    stated that it is petsmarts policy to house the birds in
    the closet!!!! I have sent a complaint to Petsmart and I
    will no longer purchase any pets or supplies from a place
    that fails to adequately and humanely treat animals that
    they make a living off of. It was also obvious that some
    of the birds were showing signs of illness with bad
    feathers and discolored pooh. Which I also brought up to
    the manager about selling sick birds and exposing the rest
    of the the birds to the sick birds and then selling them
    to unsuspecting buyers. PETSMART IS NO BETTER THAN
    PETCO!!!!
