Sick turtles at Petco

I saw a couple sliders in a tank at Peto, their shells were atleast 4 inches big and few of them had clear signs of infections. Some had shell rot, others had a white thing on their neck, some looked discolored. I told the PetCo employees to do something about and they said we treat them and they're fine. I felt really bad for the little guys. Is there anyway I can report them? or do something so they have to take them to a vet and atleast seperate the sick ones? I got 10 minows yesterday and I just realised hell they probably dont care for any of those fish, they might as well be sick so Im definitely not buying any more fish for my turtles to eat from Petco or any other pet store for that matter! Cruel bastards!!

They will have a corporate office you can contact. Get some pictures and the manager's info and blast it to them. They will likely have a vet that does rounds, you might want to ask to speak to them as well.

I went back there and most of the sick turtles were not in the tank anymore. There was only one that had some white cotton kind of stuff growing behind his head almost on his neck, but I cuoldn't really take a picture of it, wasn't clear enough to a camera when the turtle was in water.
