Good job pet store. That is what’s up.

I worked in a pet store for 5 years, and every Easter our rabbit sales went up exponentially. I can tell you from experience that almost half of the rabbits we sold were brought back in as early as two weeks after they were adopted. Some people let them loose, and some people send them to a shelter. People need to understand this very statement, and truly think about it. A rabbit is a big commitment, and should not be a fad or seen as a compulsory pet. 
I cannot like this anymore than once, but I sure as hell hope people will spread this message, because it’s important as hell. I used to hand out care sheet BOOKLETS to everyone looking to adopt, and it prevented many of them from adopting in the end. 

Constantly irritated by people who “free” their rabbits into the wild. No you just made them food.

I really hate it when people treat animals as decorations or inanimate objects and then regret adopting them when they realize they’re actually alive and need caring

People sittin here justifying the vegans who almost killed their cat with “it can be done if you transition properly and give them supplements abd they’re already adult aged” and other nonsense and its like…no…how about you stop being a control freak and not FORCE YOUR FUCKING IDEAOLOGY ON A FUCKING ANIMAL

WHY IS THIS EVEN A DISCUSSION

IF YOUR CAT WAS IN THE WILD IT WOULD NOT BE MUNCHING ON PASTES AND SUPPLEMENTS IT WOULD SINK ITS TEETH INTO A MOUSE!!

Oh my god, how can anyone - no!

No no no no! Cat’s need taurin and arginine. They don’t prefer it; they biologically need it their entire lives! They will get heart failure; they will weaken and die. No matter how many special cases of 100% controlled situations, by specialized veterinary nutritionists with resources, ‘plant protein’ supplements just doesn’t get naturally or as consistently absorbed in their short digestive track like taurin and arginine naturally found in meat.

Are there low-quality hard food brands out there with levels of fillers running counterproductive to the essential (regulated) standards to a cat’s (or dog’s) health? Yes. But that’s no reason to strip them or arrogantly resent them for what Nature deemed they need to survive!

Warning: there has been a silent recall of “Special Kitty” brand cat food. DO NOT FEED IT TO AN ANIMAL.

I’m not reblogging the full story because it’s tragic and triggering.

Okay I found the full story, do not buy special kitty anything. Food, litter, any of it. The worst part is that they’re not telling the public, so there’s no way of knowing exactly the problem. Just skip it.

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE SHARE!!!! This woman has been running an illegal puppy mill in a residential neighbourhood near where I live. They are going to court TOMORROW (Thursday) to decide whether or not she should be granted a license, which would result in her being able to continue what she’s doing with minimal inspection. You can read the report from the humane officer and get more information here: http://washingtondc.craigslist.org/nva/pet/3594198477.html

To break it down:

-she starved at least 2 litters of puppies

-dogs are kept in almost total darkness

-most of the dogs are in crates, with minimal breaks

-conditions are disgusting

-many of these dogs are visibly ill with mange, conjunctivitis, or upper respiratory infections which are NOT BEING TREATED

-dogs do not have regular access to water

This is deplorable and disgusting. Please email don.delrosso@fauquiercounty.gov. BE RESPECTFUL. They are REQUIRED to consider EVERY petition they receive. If you bash the officials, they will be much more likely to discredit your response.

Edit: THE HEARING WAS TODAY AND THEY POSTPONED THEIR DECISION UNTIL MARCH 7TH. YOU CAN READ ALL ABOUT IT (including the original report, since the CL ad is now gone) HERE: http://www.fauquiernow.com/index.php/fauquier_news/article/fauquier-zoning-board-delays-vote-on-controversial-kennel-2013

The bottom line? These dogs will suffer another MONTH unless we can get the ball rolling NOW to get them removed. Please also continue contacting them telling them NOT to grant Miss Barrett a kennel license. I know a lot of people on Tumblr dislike phones. You don’t have to call. All you have to do is EMAIL. THEY WILL BE READ!


Please email Commonwealth Attorney Jim Fisher at james.fisher@fauquiercounty.gov. and ask him to charge Irina Barrett with operating an illegal business for 4 years AND for cruelty to animals.

Email Don Del Rosso at don.delrosso@fauquiercounty.gov (he’s with Zoning) and tell him to deny her a permit based on the fact that she has been operating an illegal business for 4 years and is ALLEGEDLY guilty of cruelty and/or neglect of dogs.

Please read and do what you can to help these poor dogs. Even if you don’t live in the area, your voice still matters.

Okay, reblogging AGAIN because apparently some people aren’t understanding how fucking important this is. There are so many pointless “if you don’t reblog this, you’re heartless” posts. This has a SOLUTION, so fucking REBLOG. DOGS ARE DEAD. MORE WILL BE DEAD IN A MONTH UNLESS WE STOP IT. SO click the goddamn button. It’s not hard.
