If this is true--and I'm pretty convinced it is I am gobsmacked. The way I understood, PETA was just a radical rescue group. I had no idea it had shelters. And a high kill shelter??? I don't get it. Thank you for the link and if you have more please pm via profile. I'll answer.
Oh there's a lot on PETAs all kill shelters, and more. After I get done fencing I'll PM you somever links.If this is true--and I'm pretty convinced it is I am gobsmacked.

Just based on the sizes of the slings and the care sheets they offer, I feel confident in saying that...THERE IS NO HOPE! There will be only a very small percentage of these spiders they buy and sell that make it even a year. The care sheet is literally one of the worst I have ever seen...and that's standing out amongst thousands of total crap online care sheets.https://www.petco.com/shop/PetcoCon...e-center/caresheets/tarantula-care-sheet.html
OMG , here's a care-sheet courtesy of Petco that says care for pinktoes and rosehairs . Apparently you are suppose to keep them all exactly the same way and with lots and lots of humidity . We have been doing this wrong folks .
Agreed...its like using the mafia to help your cause...you may get what you want now, but it will end bad in the future. Stay as far away from organizations like this as you can....the looney bin has more sanity within its walls than does PITA....the only difference is that the people in the looney bin know they are crazy, people within PITA are completely delusional and believe its everyone else that's crazy.PETA and folks like that, and serious Theraphosidae keepers doesn't mix. Mark my words.
Thanks for those pics Jose....like TX said, it says it all....most of these slings will die well fefore the public is even aware they are selling them....despicable and irresponsible.I was going to post this yesterday so now it's time. Here in Midvale, Utah Petco is one of the first to get some of this wonderful species. Unfortunately is sad to know that every single one will most likely parish do to that the employees will have to keep the spiderlings in this wonderful containers that Petco is using.
If you wish to contact Petco contact the corporate office. Do not call Petco stores they cannot do anything about your claim.
It's obvious that the corporate office is not educated. Every container has some sort of sponge for substrate to keep the humidity. This spiderlings are all new born how many will parish if people don't purchase them? I was told that the price of this spiders are $19.99 with the containers.
People Eating Tasty Animals...of course
Sure, but a bite from an OW sling like a Poecilotheria can and will send a child to the ER.Even if a little kid gets a OBT or ornamental, isn't it most likely to die before reaching maturity because of the despicable care info customers are given? Correct me if I'm wrong, but aren't the baby OWs not as big a threat as adults? Don't get me wrong, an OW in an OW, but it seems that most are going to die long before they are adults with full potency venom?
That's not even a response...its just someone still trying to figure out how e-mail works....how does an adult, in an executive position, not know how to tell if there is a picture attachment.....he's probably the same dude that put together the care sheet page.
