To Whom it May Concern,
Immediate Attention Needed!
Many believe that the animals at ZoovilleUSA in Plant City, FL are starving and neglected. Attached are the most recent USDA Inspection Reports showing animals living in squalor who will never likely be cared for properly. Some have already died. The location appears to be a low budget animal hoarding operation with Susan Bradshaw named as the owner. It seems that ZoovilleUSA is located in Susan Bradshaw’s backyard. It’s hard to tell because even the USDA reports she won’t let them in to inspect the animals. ZoovilleUSA is located at 702 Cooper Road Plant City, FL 33565, phone number 813-690-9696.
Why has the USDA not closed this awful place? Or brought charges against the people responsible? I don’t know. But with the recent USDA Inspection records, it’s obvious that ZoovilleUSA has always had animals living in horrible conditions…for nothing but Money. Not education or rehabilitation. Money. The greedy profiteers ZoovilleUSA has set up numerous places for people to donate to them here and here and here and here and here and here and here .
- Primate enclosures rusted, impossible to sanitize.
- Exposed nails and screws on animal enclosures.
