Animals Reportedly Left in Filthy Conditions at “Pet Hotel” Deserve Justice

Target: Best Friends Pet Hotel Indianapolis

Goal: Stop alleged cruel animal abuse through neglect and inattention at “pet hotel.” 

A pet hotel in Indianapolis is currently under investigation after accusations of animal neglect. This comes after several pet owners were reportedly locked out of the Best Friends Pet Hotel for hours, waiting to reunite with their pets. While it is not uncommon for pets to be left alone overnight, the pet hotel is responsible for having a caretaker during the day, something they allegedly failed to do. While several families have complained of neglect after boarding their pets at the hotel for vacations, one man in particular protested after leaving a camera with his dog Bella and noticing the footage appeared to show food being spilled and left on the ground for long periods of time, that she wasn’t let out when she should be, and that by the end there were feces on her blankets and she was whining in distress. After four and a half hours he was reportedly able to get Bella back, as were other pet owners waiting at the same time. After the news broke of Bella’s alleged abuse, other pet owners came forward with their own suspected mistreatments, primarily a lack of food and care for the dogs left at the hotel.

While the investigation into the mistreatment allegedly caused by Best Friends Pet Hotel is still ongoing, being led by Indianapolis Animal Care Services, it is important that these pet owners know they are not alone. Animal mistreatment cannot, and will not, be tolerated.

Sign the petition below to let Best Friends Pet Hotel know that they must change their practices now.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Best Friends Pet Hotel,

The recent allegations of animal neglect, along with the attached investigation by the IACS, appears to show that there is an element of mismanagement at your Indianapolis branch that cannot be ignored. These accusations, which include not following owners’ requests, not providing enough food, leaving animals in unsanitary conditions involving urine and feces, and leaving animals in buildings without supervision or care, suggest not only a lack of regard required to care for our “best friends,” but a gross negligence that must not be allowed to continue.

You claim that nothing is more important to you than the animals in your care, but actions speak far louder than words. Please, be better, and make sure that you are truly caring for our best friends. Pet owners want to know that their pets are in good hands.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way it treats its animals.

    CHANGE MUST HAPPEN!!

  9. And this is why i trust NO ONE with care of my pet. Take your dog with you on vacation or what ever situation is or stay home.

  10. Michelle Stewart says:

    All the pet owners should file a lawsuit against the business for animal neglect & abuse. The business must be closed down and the owners never be allowed to open (banned for life) another business like that ever again. Each person responsible for the neglect and animal suffering must serve 1 year in prison with no early parole. The company must pay a $800,000 fine.

  11. Rose Coffey says:

    Investigate this pet hotel thoroughly; if guilty of the actions stated in the petition this place needs to be closed. This is shameful that this place would take people’s money, letting them think their pets were safe and well taken care of, but instead not giving the pets the safety and comfort that was promised.

  12. This is still CRUELTY so the owners need to be sued, shut down AND JAILED FOR CRUELTY!! It is ENOUGH already ….END theis kind of horrible human cruelty to others……

  13. Patricia Orlando says:

    Animal

  14. I know here will be circumstances when your pet has to boarded for a couple of days but my pet is a family member and when I book holidays ALL family members are included. If you want to travel abroad for holidays you should think hard about having a pet in the family. This sort of thing proves it.

  15. There’s no excuse for treating pets like this. Pet parents deserve to have peace of mind when they board their fur babies.

  16. Debra Broach says:

    No, the law now knows about it, just shut the place down period! Tired of these fools calling themselves doing things for animals and are not doing their jobs, just using the poor animals, as a front, to make a buck. Pathetic morons! I wouldn’t and dob’t trust people nowadays to take care of animals or children. My trust and respect is ….. LONG GONE!

  17. Julia Edinger says:

    OMG!!! SHUT THEM DOWN THROW THIER “EVIL BUTT’S” IN PRISON FOR LIFE….. THEY ARE AND WILL ALWAYS BE DEMONS TO INNOCENT ANIMAL’S AN PEOPLE……..

  18. Shut this hell hole down!!

  19. Ose this CRUEL Per Hotel down and charge every employee with ANIMAL CRUELTY & LOCK THEM UP & LEAVE THEM THERE WITHOUT ANY HELP FROM ANYONE ELSE!!! DO TO THEM AS THEY DID TO ALL THESE INNOCENT ANIMALS!!!!!
