Supporting the pet shop in any way shape or form is making the problem worse.

I would possibly call the SPCA but I would certainly never again buy anything from them, not even a 5 cent goldfish.

I'm realistic. I know I can't save all the animals in the world from poor pet stores, so I buy any supplies that I need from anywhere that I want. Why would I put myself out just to 'teach this store a lesson'? A lesson that will most likely go unheeded. I'd much sooner make sure that all of my animals live exceptional lives. I'm also fairly positive that there are many, many more animals being treated poorly in homes everywhere, than there are in bad pet shops.

My store sells only food and supplies. I often refer to the pupply mill stores as "flesh peddlers". I am formally banned from a national chain of stores for reporting them for abusing their "store mascot" a parrot, I reported to their head office and the SPCA. Then I spent a few weekends handing out Anti Puppy Mill literature outside their store. Apparently they took issue with this which amazed me because if they were doing nothing wrong and selling healthy non-mill animals, it shouldn't have been a problem. o>

you can always report to the Better Business Bureau. check the phone book for the number. Basically, if they get enough calls, they have to alert authorities to examine the place. that's your best bet imho.

Sleddergirl, whether what you were saying was true or not, I believe that the store had every right to ban you, and you're lucky you weren't arrested for scaring away customers and being a public nuisance.

To each their own I suppose mykee.................
I don't think there was anything wrong with informing the head office and the SPCA of abuse of an animal. As far as the puppy mill literature goes..........rescue a dog that has come from one of those places, then come talk to me..............

I know how you feel, I actually worked in a pre store who's conditions were less than optimal for the reptiles. It angered me, especially when I was doing what was best for them IE: Feeding them appropriately and getting into heck for it.
