Better animal care needed at Greensboro store

I visited the Greensboro Petco location today and I saw some animals that did not appear to be in good shape. The two species I was concened about were the betta fish and ball pythons. The bettas at this store historically appear alright but the last 2 times I have been to this store there have been a lot of fish with clamped fins or floating at the top. With the ball pythons I noticed that both juveniles were rail thin the last couple of times I have been there. Now I know that the store is just temporay housing until the animals find their "forever homes", but I feel like they should be treated better than I saw. I also recognize that ball pythons can be finnicky eaters but when kept in the right conditions there is a much higher chance of them eating. I personally love the store and I want to continue to shop here but I wanted to bring attention to this because if I continue to see this type of thing I may decide to shop somewhere else.

Hi GreatDaneMom. Thank you very much for bringing this to our attention. Animal care is our very top priority and we take it very seriously. I have already gone ahead and shared this with our team so that it can be looked into and addressed. Thank you.
