Horrors at Petsmart Supplier

Video footage from a new PETA undercover investigation reveals horrific conditions for small animals and birds who are bred and brokered by a major supplier to PetSmart.

At Rainbow World Exotics in Hamilton, Texas—a massive breeding mill and one of PetSmart's main animal suppliers—PETA's investigator documented that live animals were thrown into the trash, were deprived of desperately needed veterinary care, were suffering and dying alone in their cages, and were cannibalizing each other. The investigator also found that rabbit neuter surgeries were crudely performed by a layperson in a filthy, dark room using Clorox Disinfecting Wipes to wipe blood off of the rabbits' fresh, raw incisions.
