So Petco is guaranteed the animals are ..healthy enough to live, so to speak? And if they die all of a sudden, like because someone puts a T in a fishtank, the breeder gets to cough up the money? Those breeders must get paid alot / trust Petco goooodOriginally posted by savian
They can not guarantee the animal if it didn't come from a breeder. That was also why I was telling you that they didn't due wc. Petco goes back to the breeder if the animal dies and holds them for it. Money money money.
Depending on who you listen to, those freezers are both euthanism device and storage on wrapped up into one.Originally posted by savian
No trust need they are all counted. Every Petco has a frezzer were all the dead are kept. Once every month or so it is all bagged up and sent to some company that goes and looks at everything. I don't know what this company does with them. I never was interesed enough to ask.
Think of it from their perspective: An animal, any animal, is just a vehicle to sell accessories and food/feeders. Pet stores really don't make squat off of live animals for them to be profitable in and of themselves. Things like feeder goldfish, crickets, dogfood, and kitty litter are paying the bills while fishtanks, kritter keepers, and dog leashes are putting the occasional ribeye on the table.Originally posted by veronyka
Anyway, they need to start selling more varied tarantulas to get my attention. Which I know they won't because they cater to cats dogs fish and birds, and to those who just want a starter tarantula.
