Our parrot adoption season has just begun, and it’s not over yet.
Parrots are a critically endangered species and a source of income for some pet stores, but for others, they’re just another tool in the toolbox to help us stay in business.
We know that pet stores are struggling to stay afloat in a tough market.
The reality is, they can’t afford to let their pets out of the house unless they can find someone to adopt them.
And in a time of economic uncertainty, it’s the last thing that many pet stores want to do.
So it makes sense that PetSmart, Petco, PetSmart Pet Store, Petland, and many other pet stores would be keen to make a splash in the adoption game.
They’re not the only ones looking to tap into the market for a new source of revenue, though.
PetSmart PetStore has been one of the big winners this year, raising $1.5 million through an online campaign and making a significant donation to the ASPCA.
When it comes to online sales, PetCo, Petmart, and PetSmart are all on the cusp of making big strides in helping to sustain their pet business.
The success of these companies, however, has not come without controversy.
Some believe that online sales can create an artificial scarcity, which is not only unsustainable for the species but also the environment.
In an effort to help pet stores keep their pet businesses afloat, the ASPA is spearheading an initiative to help them better understand the impact online sales will have on their pets.
Petsmart is also partnering with the ASPI to educate the public about how to choose an online pet store.
As the market is starting to heat up, many pet owners have been turning to online pet stores for help finding a new pet.
However, online sales are only one part of the equation.
Even as we speak, PetMart, PetShop, and others are gearing up to open new stores.
With these online pet retailers and their new online offerings, the industry is on the brink of a renaissance.
