Anyone?
I guess talk to them, write corporate? Anyone else had experience with Walmart? I'm going to PM dramaqueen and ask if we can start a betta advocacy thread...

sjones, I will make a trip back to walmart and re-assess conditions. I can then notify the manager an see what kind of results I get. It would be a good idea to have a Betta Advocacy thread.

i worked at walmart for three years and i'm telling you it's gonna take more than one person in one state/ store to get their attention, as i'm sure you've gathered. Walmart is the devil. They push single people's concerned under the rug and do anything to keep you quiet. If you all decide to go after walmart, it's gonna take a HUGE effort. Now the PetsMarts and Petcos of the universe are a little easier to go after since they haven't reached the mammoth size of walmart. They deal in millions, while walmart is billions.

I do find it promising (in some sense of the word) that you recieved an email, even though it was mostly a form email. Keep it up and hopefully something good comes from it.

That's so sad T_T I actually applied at Petco for a summer job in hopes of maybe being able to take care of their fish better. >> I'm glad that my first three bettas that I rescued from there are happy/healthy now (and rather spoiled). ^^
