PetSmart – The Facts
PETA's Campaign Against PetSmart
Updated March 1, 2007
PETA has launched a negative publicity campaign against PetSmart. As part of this campaign, PETA is doing what it can to portray PetSmart in a negative light and to make people believe that pets in our stores do not receive care or proper medical attention when they become ill. Nothing is further from the truth. We invite you to visit any of our stores and see for yourself.
PETA’s actions are not about the care we provide for the pets in our stores as much as about this group wanting to impose its agenda on us and those who enjoy pets. This is made clear in a written proposal PETA submitted to us in November 2005. PETA vowed to conduct a negative campaign against PetSmart if we refused to quit selling birds and small pets.
