LISTING REMOVED. Albany, NY: One of those posts that makes you hate life. Someone unknowingly gets a pregnant pig from Petsmart, pig has three babies, and now the poster is dumping all of them. Oh but within the day the mom and two of her kids were taken, just leaving one poor calico baby boy. Four to five weeks old. He might wind up in a better place than the women in his family. Comes with a lot of stuff, but it probably isn't great for the pig if this poster got supplies from Petsmart.
Here's something I've wondered. PetCo sponsors Petfinder, who then has to say they're against stores that sell dogs and cats. NOT animals in general. Obviously petstores are contributing to the overpopulation problem by selling small animals, but I wonder how many of the homeless animals on Petfinder began at a breeder who supplies to big chains, like PetCo, their sponsor. Wouldn't it just be keen to know?
