Animals are not ours to eat, wear, experiment on, use for entertainment, or abuse in any other way.

Quake at PETCO Stadium Leaves One Brick Intact

Written by PETA | June 16, 2010

Phew! PETA’s “BOYCOTT PETCO” brick* survived the 5.7-magnitude earthquake that shook San Diego’s PETCO Park on Monday—and here’s a photo snapped by an activist last night to prove it:


PETCO Stadium


Don’t get me wrong—PETA loves the stadium’s tasty, animal-friendly eats but hates the massive suffering that PETCO causes by buying animals from shady dealers and selling them to anyone who walks in, intentions be damned. Animals like the poor fellow below who are bred for and shipped to PETCO and other pet stores get their world shaken to pieces every single day by being mishandled, abused, or even thrown into the trash to die. They are crammed en masse into crowded, filthy containers at animal distributors such as U.S. Global Exotics and Sun Pet, and they’re often denied basic necessities, including food, water, adequate air, and veterinary care.


Bloody Hamster


Let’s shake things up for PETCO (the store—not the stadium!) by telling it to stop selling animals immediately or we’ll shop elsewhere for our dog beds, cat trees, toys, and treats.
