Austin, how can you do this to animals? Our pets have already been devalued because of the mechanical age, and Austin Pets Alive! want to devalue them more. A parking lot sale, for God's sake, please stop this nonsense. How many of these animals end up in research labs, the price is right. How many of these animals end up with hoarders, even they can afford $10. How many of these end up with a animal abuser? Can't you see what you are doing, putting these animals at risk? Anyone who looks for a bargain basement price on a pet is NOT the type of owner that we want. Is there something in the water in South Texas that affects the minds of these people that they can't see the harm they are doing? No, it comes down to "No Kill" sacrificing some and to hell with the others, outta sight, outta mind.
Through the help of PetSmart Charities and a $10,000 grant, APA! was able to pull off the massive parking lot event held at the Brodie Lane PetSmart in Austin. Over 200 cats, kittens, puppies and dogs were on-site and ready for adoption, all with reduced fees of only $10.
And Petsmart, who hired one of Brenda Barnette's cronies, has no business offering grants in hopes of getting more business. Surely Petsmart knows that people who think in terms of a $10 pet are not going to be shopping in Petsmart, can't afford it. Just look at guinea pigs, hamsters, those disposable pets, now they are costing more than dogs and cats. Why are these called disposable pets, because it is cheaper to let them die than take them to a vet. That is how these poor animals from Austin Pets Alive! will be viewed - disposable.
