My apologies,,,, I did not mean I would shop there. What I meant was that I will not shop there as I have said earlier. I will not support them but I will pass along information. Sorry for the confusion.
I went into PetCo first thing this morning.I spoke with the manager to ask about their evacuation policy that has been put in place. What I was told is that they are now working closely with a local shelter. They will only have animals there for adopition and will have no more than 20 animals at a time. (Although there were about 30-40 there today for the event). He also told me that in the event of an emergency the animals will be evacuted to the shelter that came from and all employees have been trained to evacuate them. He also told it is his call to evacuate in teh event of an emergency. I hope this is not another lie of this company's to try and get customers back. Let's hope these animals are safe. Thank you to everyone for your support. Please continue to post any information you get here.
I don't know about anyone else but I will be there on opening day speaking with tha manager to find out exactly what kind of evacuation plan the have in place.... I encourage everyone to do the same!
For all of those people who joined this page and said we could do nothing with it- WE HAVE!!!! They are moving their location! That is something and now the animals may have a fighting chance! Thank you to eveyrone who has shown support! It would not happen without all of you!
Just on the news. PETCO does not want to open in the same place. They do want to reopen in JC. They have choosen 5 different places to donate $5,000 each too. With luck they will never return to the area!
Just an FYI to everyone. I have started deleted and banning people from this page. Not due to their opinions but to they way they decide it needs to be said! There is a nice way to disagree with others. Please remember there are young people who read this page including my 12 year old daughter. The language, threats, and down grading need to stop. When I have more information on PetCo I will post it. If you have any news please post.
For anyone who was a victim of the flooding- there is a free give away today at Christ Church in Binghamton. Lots of clothes, household items and other things. Everything is free. It starts at 3pm and goes to 7pm...
For anyone who was effected by the flooding in Binghamton, JC or anywhere else here is some information for you. Christ Church in Binghamton 10 Henry St is holding a rummage sale that is not a rummage sale. Everything there will be free to those effected. Household goods, clothing, some small furniture and many other things. It will be Friday from 3-7 and Saturday morning only in the small parking lot across from Boscov's parking ramp. If you know anyone who needs something please tell them.
I am done with the arguing on this page!!! I started this page as a good thing. If you do not like this page get off of it! If all you want to do is argue go somewhere else! Period! I am done with this. This is a good page. It is the petty crap that goes on that makes it this way! SO stop or leave! I will start blocking people this is my page and the page of those who support it!
Update- People have been asking about more protests. At this point I am not aware of any. perhaps when they reopen. As far as blocking people I have only blocked one person and he was very offensive. I will keep this page so we can continue to get information as it comes in. I hope everyone rememeber the reason for this page. it is not to argue between ourselves. It is for the lost animals. Thank you for your support.
Check this out!!!!
Thank you to everyone that showed up today! But do not forget that there is another protest tomorrow 12-5. Same place!!! Bring your signs and donations!!! Thank you everyone for posting pics... keep them coming. Great supporters!
