AM I A BAD VEGAN FOR SPENDING MONEY AT PET SMART? Me and my partner have been vegan for 7 months now but I have an ethical dilemma. I absolutely despise pet stores, zoos and the whole pet industry, humans seem to exploit and abuse animals in every way they can find.. but my partner doesn’t agree. She always makes me take her to Pet smart ( the most evil one of all tbh) and we spend all of our money there on fish and supplies for them. I don’t want my money going to those greedy evil people. She doesn’t want to hear it and says I’m trying to guilt trip her because I “don’t want pets”. So I’m never allowed to talk about why I hate pet stores she just assumes I’m being rude. What should I do? Am I a bad vegan for letting it happen? | Totally Vegan Buzz

So just my opinion but if you shop at any supermarket you are encouraging animal death…

so we all make compromises and don’t walk down the chickens and beef aisle. Being realistic we need to do basic things that our pets need. I buy cat food that contains chicken as they need meat. I cannot force our cats to go vegan as they need the meat nutritionally. 3 rescued cats are better off with us now and happy so that makes us happy. Shopping at McDs if they do a vegan burger is similar. Evil corporation BUT very vegan burger sold means less animals killed. That makes sense.

Hey, it’s important to realize that Pet Smart does do bad things with their money, but they also spend money on things that are good, so try and focus on that .
