Thank you for posting this story and for your compassionate attempt to ensure that Buck passed peaceably.

Unfortunately like Mary from NY, I remain convinced that megaconglomerate corporate enterprises like PetCo will not alter their policies. I used to work in a family- and vet-owned pet store that prioritized taking care of its staff and its animals, and time and again, I only heard and saw inhumane and unacceptable treatment toward animals at Petco. In fact, the only thing I remember putting a crimp in their style was their losing a lawsuit and being forced to pay through the nose.

To that end, apart from contacting Petco, you absolutely should contact ASPCA, PETA, and other relevant organizations. Even if Petco changes the quality of that local store, the systemic problems will remain, and these larger advocacy groups have the resources to launch extensive campaigns and even legal action. Thank you for using your power as a consumer and as an empathetic individual to combat such an atrocity.
