"I reached out to the community and I said if you are a consumer, I want to talk to you," she said.
She collected testimonials from dozens of customers at both the Kennesaw location and a second Petland store in Sarasota, Florida. Both stores are owned by Brad Parker, a man who has addressed allegations only sparingly in the media.
Rylee Barr, a former employee at the Sarasota location, told The Dodo last December she saw puppies "coming in multiple times a week or who were sick and had deformities."
A lot of puppies went to the vet, she added, but she only realized later they had died.
The store's response to her claims?
"We have irrefutable proof that she is making falsehoods," Jenn Kennedy, a manager at Petland Sarasota, told The Dodo.
