    oh gee another pet store did this did that line.
    LEts see business 101

    1. Businesses are in business to make money
    2. Businesses are in business to stay in business

    What part of that are we not clear on? If your not happy
    their than shop else where. Obvously you have been
    patronizing thier eastablishments or you would not be privy
    to the conditions on the premesis. Really the only way to
    affect places like this is to remove your BUSINESs from
    their BUSINESS.
