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]

  1. Wasn’t that a Gandhi quote? So very true!!

  2. This is unacceptable! None of these people who left their pets in the care of the Pet Hotel NEVER would have left them, if they had known that they ( the pets) would be treated in this manner! We, as pet owners, need to know our pets are left in trusting hands!!! These people should NEVER be allowed to Cate for people’s pets EVER AGAIN!!!

  4. Monica Lee Koski says:

    As an animal parent, you have to trust the staff and facility you leave your pet with, to provide all the necessary care and TLC. It is obvious through proven facts, that this Indianapolis Best Friends Hotel is failing to meet those expectations through their gross negligence that has been witnessed and reported.Those responsible should be held accountable…if they can not and do not meet acceptable standards, shut them down!

  5. I wouldnt leave my pet with any pet hotel

  6. Immediately close this vile place down and place its owners and ionvolved staff, in prison for a minimum of 20 years duration.Additionally impose a large monetry fine.

    Just so irresponsible of the hotel owners! Pets need someone to care for them and love their job!! Shame on these evil humans!!

  9. Jaime Perez says:

    It is disgusting and unacceptable! The owners are just taking the money from unsuspecting people and not doing their job in taking care of the animals. People can be so greedy and evil just for profit!! Shut this place down and make the hotel owners pay restitution for the mistreatment of dogs in their so called “care.”

But our laws protect assholes like them we all need to band together and get rid of animal abuse and abusers once and for all!!!

    I wouldn’t leave my animal in any pet hotel if I knew they were going to be left alone at night. This place left them alone it seems even longer than overnight, it seems they didn’t even care for their basic needs. I think they need to shut it down & the owners of this hotel never be allowed to be in the animal business again . These places are not cheap. Someone should have been on duty at all times.
