Activists Uniting For The Benefit of Animals

Please ask the Enderby Pet Store to relinquish Chinchilla

An animal loving lady has contacted us from Enderby, BC with grave concerns about a pet store located in this city.

She said it was the worst pet store she had ever seen and that sounds of desperate birds screaming and terrified filled the store, not to mention dirty cages.

The store called Enderby Paws and Claws has a collection of animals from doves, rats and snakes to a lonely little chinchilla.

Although she would love to see all the animals rescued from there, for now she is asking that efforts be made to have the Chinchilla removed.  According to her, chinchilla’s need to be kept in quiet and dark places to rest.  This one is surrounded by the ongoing cries of the animals as well as very bright fluorescent lights. Although images are of a low density resolution and it’s hard to see, she also said the cages are filthy and look as though they have not been cleaned in months.  It is full of layers of feces.

There is also concern over a ball that is in the cage for the Chinchilla.  Apparently others have reported it as dangerous because they go in to hide and then overheat easily.  It is called by some the Deathball.

She is asking for animal rights friends to call the store and ask that the Chinchilla be allowed to be rescued and go to a new home.

Please contact the Enderby Pet Store at 250-838-7383 and ask the storeowner to relinquish the chinchilla to a reputable rescue group and to stop selling chinchilla’s (and all animals!) for good!

  1. First of all I would like to say wonderful blog! I had a quick question that I’d like to
    ask if you do not mind. I was curious to know how you center
    yourself and clear your mind prior to writing.
    I’ve had a hard time clearing my thoughts in getting
    my ideas out there. I truly do enjoy writing however it just
    seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are lost simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or hints?

    Last year I wrote to the Mayor and Council after visiting the store. It’s filthy and the woman there knew nothing about the rabbit I was concerned about. They also had puppies in the store window. Their food and water bowls were tipped over, and overall it was unclean.
