In 2015 Wall Street private equity firm BC Partners turned its predatory eye on PetSmart. Taking a page from the typical pirate equity playbook, BC Partners acquired PetSmart and immediately loaded it with millions in debt. Since the takeover, our wages have been stagnant, our workload has increased, and short-sighted cost cutting has robbed us of the resources we need to provide  the quality pet care animals deserve. We know our stores — and what pets need — better than any Wall Street fat cat. When BC Partners loots PetSmart profits, it’s frontline pet care workers, innocent animals, and loving pet parents who pay the price. That’s why we’re speaking up. Pet care workers and pet parents must be united in calling for #PetCareOverProfits. Join us!
