26,000 Animals Rescued from Pet Wholesaler (VIDEO)

Following a seven-month-long investigation by an undercover PETA employee, U.S. Global Exotics, a multi-million dollar importer and wholesaler of exotic “pets”, was shut down. In December, more than 26,000 animals were seized from the facility in Arlington, Texas – the largest animal seizure in history.  

Veterinarians and other experts from around the country flew to Arlington to set up a rescue facility where the animals were nursed back to health. 

See the before and after pictures of the rescued animals.

Great job! I wish they could shut them all down. Give these furry angels a chance and stop all the overbreeding. There are over 200,000 animals out there looking for homes. Stop Breeding. Take care of what we have. We are THEIR voice.

I am so glad to hear those animals were rescued. I don't know much about PETA so I can't comment on them.
