My 12 year old sister went to a birthday party with 10 other girls, and for the loot bags everyone got a fish in a bowl and some fish food along with a set of rules. It’s basically a contest to see whoever can keep their fish alive the longest, and the winner gets a $25 gift card. It is the stupidest thing ever, I got so angry when I heard about it. So far 6 fish out of the 10 have died, and it’s only been 1 week. The girls aren’t even allowed to change the fish bowl and put it in something bigger, because that’s considered “cheating.” These poor fish do not deserve to be treated like this, they are living beings, not objects.
Find out who’s in charge and douse them with filthy fishbowl water
wow, this is just disgustingggggggggggggggggggggggg.
Hooooly fucking shit I would be stomping faces over this who the fuck thinks “You know what would be super fun for these little kids? Having all of them kill an animal, but as slow as they can manage, then reward one of them for it. IT’LL TEACH THEM ABOUT ~*RESPONSIBILITY*~ AKA ABUSING LIVING THINGS!!! Excellent yes i m best party planner” ugh ugh
Oh my god this is HORRIFYING. you are basically TELLING them the fish will die, even the ‘winner’ is last to go ‘belly up.’
that is awful, what a horrible person. They should be ashamed of themselves.
I’m so fucking pissed right now.
Wooooow. What the actual fuck.
Burton’s Total Pet is a local chain here in the Pittsburgh area. They’ve always been a decent store in my opinion (not a lot of livestock but all they have is healthy at my local one when I go and they don’t sell dogs and cats) but then my friend found this posted in the store near her and now I like them even more!
Good on them! They don’t just pander to the ignorant. :D
This goes for bettas. too.
I feel I should note that this chain, while it does keep the majority of it’s bettas in the usual cups, also puts a betta in every spare tank or betta-friendly regular-size tank they can which is pretty cool of them. (Man, does my local one have a snail prob right now though lol)
This guy was happily patrolling a 10g last time I visited. They still sell all the usual betta bullshit products but little steps forward are better than nothing :D
They are also making great strides with their pet food selection They won’t stock products they wouldn’t feed to their own pets (like Purina and Nutro) just because a company wants to pay them do to so even if they lose some profit. (source)

If you’re going to completely disregard what I’m telling you, why the fuck are you bothering with owning a pet?
Poor pet store Retail Robins. I couldn’t do what they do man. I’d be fired so fast.

Goldfish are awesome. I couldn’t imagine life without goldfish. They make each day worth living in- they make each breath meaningful. A goldish tail is a little ray of sunshine, each little swish a metaphor for the beauty and mystery of life. We should all be thankful for goldfish.
