Well my LPS is closing down due to many "anonymous (ok, well calls by me and a couple humane society and *P.A.P.P.S. friends)" calls to local authorities regarding poor care of their animals (they kept a monky in a small hanging cage, bettas in cups half as small as petsmart keep theirs in, most of their other fish were dead, the gerbils were always lethargic, the puppies generally had broken tails and kennel cough, I could go on and on about how terrible this place is.... but I wont). The local humane society is taking in all dogs, cats, rabbits, monkey, and lizards. The rest (gerbils, guinea pigs, hamsters, birds, goldfish, betta fish, plecos, parrot fish, and snakes) are under *P.A.P.P.S. (People against purchasing from petstores)care. With a couple calls, the head of PAPPS was able to rent out a local warehouse type thing where the animals can stay. A guinea pig, a lavender corn snake, and a boa constrictor were assigned to me (they stay at the warehouse, they are just my responsibility to care for). I volunteered to take the bettas (there are about 50 of them) home because the warehouse hardly gets up to 60 degrees. The lights and heaters that they have need to go to the more delicate creatures, so only the strongest bettas would have made it out. The tiny female bettas are in mini kritter
totes and the tank shown below because I don't have the funds or room for anything better. The males have small critter keepers, 2.5g bowls, and 1g tupperware tubs. I'll keep you updated! Oh, and the other picture is taz, the completle finless male in his cup before being transfered to the tub.
