Question by ?: Pet stores?
Well, I am very well informed about the pup mill puppies in pet stores, and I would NEVER get a dog from them.

Before I knew about the pet stores, I got two guinea pigs from Petsmart. My question is, do they have guinea pig mills? Should I be concerned? I guess it isn’t the same, since there aren’t guinea pigs roaming the streets and getting euthanized by the millions, but still…
the other, small pet store’s guinea pigs were obviously sick.

Best answer:

Answer by Sean
While I am not 100% sure and I’m basing my answer on what I know about rabbits and their breeders, I think the answer is no. I am assuming that, like rabbits, guinea pigs are bred by local breeders. Someone can disprove me on that one, but that is my educated guess.

I’m not too pleased with Petsmart anyway; I consider them they Wal-Mart of pet stores. While browsing the tropical fish, I overheard a manager tell an employee, “Don’t worry about taking care of them, just get rid of the dead ones to make the tank look good.” That stuck in my craw, enough that we ended up writing a letter.

Dallas, Texas (PRWEB) November 02, 2012

US demand for plastic containers is expected to surpass $ 32 billion in 2016, with resin demand reaching 14.2 billion pounds. Advances will be driven by performance advantages over metal, glass and paperboard alternatives, which will stimulate plastic containers ongoing opportunities in a broad range of applications. Additionally, unit gains will be propelled by preferences for small, single-serving containers in bottle markets such as water, carbonated soft drinks, and milk; and in tub, cup, and bowl markets such as yogurt, soup, fruit, coffee, and condiments. However, advances will be moderated by the maturity of a number of bottle markets, along with heightened competition from flexible packaging in the tub, cup, and bowl, and tray markets.

Resin demand will trail unit gains due to light weighting of bottles in many markets to hold down resin and shipping costs, and to enhance sustainability. Notable markets where significant lightweighting has been achieved include bottled water and liquid laundry detergent. The liquid laundry detergent market has transitioned to more concentrated formulations that require smaller bottles.

Pharmaceutical, food uses to spur bottles & jars gains

Among major bottle and jar markets, the fastest gains are anticipated for food and pharmaceutical applications. In pharmaceutical applications, growth for bottles and jars will be supported by heightened pharmaceutical production, along with above-average expansion among the older population segments, which comprise the most intensive consumers of pharmaceuticals and related containers. Plastic bottle demand in food uses will be driven by barrier property and processing improvements that will create further opportunities for PET bottles in hot-fill applications and for HDPE and PET bottles in aseptic applications.

Faster volume gains are anticipated for plastic containers other than bottles and jars, the result of continued favorable growth for tubs, cups, and bowls and improved demand for other plastic container types. Tub, cup, and bowl demand will be supported by the convenience, portability, and portion control benefits of single serving cup packaging, as well as the presence of food industry growth segments (e.g., yogurt, hummus, single-cup coffee) in which tub and cup packaging is used. However, volume expansion will be moderated by thin walling of containers in order to reduce the amount of material consumed per container.

Prospects for plastic pails will be helped by recoveries in residential, office, and commercial construction from their low 2011 levels, which will boost demand for paints, adhesives, driveway sealers, and other goods typically packaged in pails. A rebound in the construction market will also stimulate demand for other plastic containers such as plastic paint cans and plastic caulking cartridges.

PET, HDPE to remain major plastic container resins

Polyethylene terephthalate (PET) and high density polyethylene (HDPE) are by far the major resins for plastic containers, accounting for a combined 86 percent of demand in 2011. PET will see higher volume gains in uses such as food and pharmaceutical bottles, trays, and tubs, cups, and bowls. HDPE demand will rebound from declines in the 2006-2011 period. However, gains will be restrained by declining per capita consumption of milk, the downsizing of detergent and bleach bottles, and competition from laundry detergents that are not packaged in bottles.

US demand for pipe is expected to grow 6.2 percent per year to $ 50.1 billion in 2016. Sales of pipe will benefit primarily from a rebound in building construction. In addition, the expansion of oil and gas exploration and transmission activity, an improved outlook for state and municipal infrastructure spending, and the continued need to replace and repair the countrys aging water pipe networks will contribute to growth. In volume terms, pipe demand is forecast to rise at a 6.3 percent annual rate through 2016 to 83 billion pounds, totaling more than 12 billion feet.

Plastic continues to take market share

Plastic pipe will experience the fastest growth through 2016. Resin improvements that enhance pipe performance will enable plastic pipe to continue to take market share from other pipe materials in demanding applications. Additionally, processing improvements will allow plastic pipe to be a more cost effective option compared to other materials. Polyvinyl chloride (PVC), which accounted for approximately one-half of all plastic pipe demand in 2011, will remain the leading plastic resin. Going forward, PVC is expected to take advantage of the recovery in building construction and increase at nearly a double digit rate. High density polyethylene (HDPE) pipe was the second leading plastic pipe in 2011. Advances in HDPE pipe will result from the material continuing to supplant concrete, PVC, and steel pipe in drainage, storm sewer, and water distribution applications.

TO ALL YOU GREEDY FRIKIN EVIL HELL MAKERS LET THE DOG BE FREE YOU DIRTY LOW LIFE SCUM.

  • kayceehorse says:

    I’m not saying there are not wonderful breeders out there. I mostly say that so people that don’t know any better don’t get a sick dog. I admit that I’ve never been fond of breeders because some of them add to the number of unwanted animals every year, but I have seen high quality breeders. If there where only good breeders in the world then there wouldn’t be a problem.

  • charmed6057 says:

    Thats why you research breeders and find out as much information as possible about them. I got my dog from a Breeder, who is very well known and even checks in on us every so often. Not all breeders produce animals that are in deplorable condition or develop such.

  • flowerpetals32 says:

    Puppy Mills is where people breed dogs for profit, and they don’t care how dirty the cages are and are not taking care of the puppies well.

  • TehKitteh01 says:

    Some pet stores here stopped selling puppies and are now encouraging adoption. If most, if not all did this, even for a while, the mills would shut down.

  • teenatuner says:

    Damn right they deserve homes. They should be seized and taken to rescue organizations who will treat them as living sentient beings, not product, and will find them good homes. The stores should not profit as they are part of the deception and perpetuation of the cycle.

    is just BECAUSE brainless people don’t care about “just dogs”… that people don’t care about children… why care about children? or other human being? if they can ever care about “just dogs”… right? I can’t believe I can read such things… in 21st century… unbelieveable…

  • KripDrip says:

    puppy mills creates jobs

  • Skylarkien says:

    well, most would get bought anyway, but you can’t shut down the puppy mills without getting rid of the demand. The best approach would be a ban n selling puppies from stores and websites, then the puppy mills would be shut down and you wouldn’t have all these puppies in store waiting to get bought.

  • ladybaseball51 says:

    I love the video, I won’t purchase anything from a pet from a pet store, I know where they came from, yes there should be a law to force pet stores to tell the origin of the dog they are going to purchase.

  • sega310982 says:

    They should enact laws to force pet stores to tell them the origin of the dogs.

    This is why EVERYTIME i pass one of those puppy pet shops… i end up getting kicked out XD I mean how can you like resist running in their with puppy mill flyers and secretly handing them to the customers and then for a big finish you yell that the dogs are from puppy mills and try to quickly yell what a puppy mill is. XD Luckily i’m a teen who looks like a little kid so all i get is kicked out. but you all should try it sometime it’s really fun

  • Marianna Garza says:

    were from an exibition group were trying to stop puppy mill

  • Lexingtonprepdude says:

    Lol morons, if I tell people the dogs are abused more people will buy them…fail tactic

  • 88Cathycat says:

    Why not buying a pet in a shelter ? They don’t breed , they have plenty animals from people that bought in a pet store as a so called ‘ emotional buying ‘.
    And do anyone realizing what happens with that adorable puppy or kitty that is not that is not sold after 3 months ! Yes , they goes back to the puppy mill for breeding the rest of their lives. Stop buying animals in Pet Stores than the Puppy Mills lose their clientèle and it will slowly ending because the big money stopped.

  • thatawesomegal14 says:

    That means my 9 old dog probably came from one of those! So sad, breaks my heart!

  • bananasunshinecake says:

    they would probably get transported to local, or non-local shelters. 

  • chikabirdy says:

    They’d go to shelters. It’s nothing against the puppies, it’s against the cruel “breeders.” If you buy that puppy (or “save” it) in a pet store, you’re supporting the horrific mistreatment of the mother puppy. AND a lot of puppy mill dogs are purposely born a bit premature so that the mother can go on and have another litter without a break. If people would stop buying these dogs, there would be no dogs that we’re wonder where they’d go.

  • MarMarLog says:

    But what about the puppies that already exist?
    The puppies that are in pet stores that don’t get bought? Don’t get me wrong, puppy mills are terrible terrible places and shouldn’t exist….but why punish puppies for the accident of where they were born?

  • sayhello2mylittlefriend94 says:

    Yes, I think so. I saw a video where they were just piled up into boxes. A hamster got loose and an employee purposely killed it by squishing it. He then threw it away, not even making sure it was dead. Sickening.
    Try going to local, small pet stores. Big chain pet stores usually try to do it cheaply, which means less care for the animals. Pet shops that aren’t chain stores generally are a lot better, because they usually don’t have as many animals. More animals=less care for the animals. Less animals=more care for the animals.
