Massive flooding was caused by Tropical Storm Lee, which allowed PETCO workers' failures to do the right thing for the animals in their charge, this is even worse than anyone imagined. Please sign.

Thanks for Taking Action for PETCO's Victims

One should always try to save a life no matter what package it is in. They are living beings and at the very least an open cage so they had the ability to swim or climb higher.

Could they not of taken some with them to a higher ground PETCO? Could they not of placed them up higher in the store itself. But to do absolutely nothing to make an effort to save them is horrible. As I said, at the very least, and that is bottom line, give them at least a fighting chance with an open cage.

Ever since this incident because it seemed when I first heard about it that Petco should have and also could have saved every one of these animals' lives! They act as if these animals are dispensable items! Their management and their whole chain of stores disgust me and they should be held criminally liable for their conduct which is actually felony animal cruelty! I never to to Petco and I would strongly urge everyone to boycott this company for what they didn't do but could have done for these poor animals!

Have petitioned & phoned Petco in the past concerning other violations. I don't believe that ANY of these stores should be selling animals, period, these corporations just don't give a damn! These were innocent lives that should have been cared about and saved!~~

Sadly noted and signed with disgust at the staff and management of Petco that made no attempt to rescue these poor animals from drowning,how terrified they must have been and such suffering they went through!!!!!! I think no pet shops should be selling animals as each person wishing to purchase an animal should be vetted before the animal is handed over as abusers will buy from pet shops!!!! If i was working at Petco i would have risked drowning myself to get these innocent animals out of the shop as they can't do it themselves,what selfish gutless people they are!!!!!!!!!!

I'm glad there's a petition, but would feel better if there were laws in place to have all these POS held accountable for every charge of animal cruelty and neglect that could be thrown at them...

then i would hope their jail/prison cells flood...thanks Nicole

The seven employees of PETCO have shown their inability to have a job with direct contact to pets.
They left the poor animals die horribly, regardless that their work "in theory" also asks to them to take care of the animals for sale.
I hope, as a minimum, these seven incompetent and cowardly bastards lose their jobs.

PETCO should not sell any living beings in any of their stores! Unfortunately my town has only one pet store, PETCO. I have had to tell someone about dead fish or sick birds too many times. The manager doesn't care and lies or makes something up if questioned. And very few of the employees know how to care for the animals they are responsible for.

My sentiments exactly, too many of you to list! Such a horror, how did they sleep, knowing what was happening, or had happened.

Such people only see animals as commodities and do not really care about them, as evidenced by this result. These animals died unnecessarily! If only they had been evacuated and not just forsaken by these people, who should be ashamed of themselves and not be allowed to continue with their business!

We all need to let them know in WORDS that we will boycott them---mine states that the boycott will be in effect until they STOP selling animals at all---Petco & Petsmart---they fuel the backyard breeders! I worked {groomed} a lot of breeders dogs they and other stores sell---believe me, your AKC papers aren't worth 2 cents. Stay away from breeders who often go to the pound and get "look alike" dogs cuz their are so interbred...look closely at that peke---is it maybe part king Charles Sp[aniel? Most likely, Pekes are even mixed with some lahsas & shih's, small wouldn't believe how easy it is to fill out those papers & lie---a dad is never supposed to be over 10 years old-HA! Many are way over that but nop one checks the pupus, checks the age of the registered father, inbreeding will cause many problems.

Signed and shared to Facebook....not only is this sad and could have been prevented but they need to implement policy changes at all Petco stores concerning the welfare of animals. I have a Petco here...I had taken my 3yr old niece with me shopping and she fell in love with the ferrets..however as we were watching them we noticed one not moving and being bitten at by the others...after it was discovered it was dead I had talked to the people who worked there but they only got upset at me for even bothering them with something they said was 'trival'!! I was beyond upset and have not been back...
