Pet Store Forced To Close Due To Allegations Of Puppy Abuse (PHOTOS)

A well-known pet store in Pennsylvania was trying to defend itself Monday after a Facebook post from an ex-employee about animal abuse she claimed to have witnessed exploded across the internet.

Ex-employee Katelyn Cerciello wrote she quit her job at the Robinson Petland after only one month because she just “couldn't watch the owner, refuse vet care for sick puppies anymore, ship them back to the Hunte Corporation to be euthanized, or in general sell puppy-mill puppies for thousands of dollars to the unknowing public.”

“You could tell they were sick. Nine-week-old puppies should be bouncing around playing, but they'd be lying on the floor,” Cerciello explained Channel 11 reporter Pamela Osborne.

Cerciello said she made efforts to assist the animals, but the store’s owner was not willing to cooperate.

“I kept telling him something needs to be done and he wouldn't do anything,” Cerciello noted.

Statement From Robinson Petland

The manager of the pet store, JoAnn Williams, said that she was aware of the post and photos, but claimed they were false and they were likely taken during a morning cleaning.

Williams also pointed out that Robinson Petland is fully up-to-date with registration with the American Kennel Club and the local dog warden.

She also gave the Channel 11 team a tour of the store, but declined to comment further about the allegations.

According to Osborne, the store was nice and clean and the animals all seemed to be in good health.

Robinson Petland, however, was forced to close early Monday due to “threats”.
