People get great pleasure in watching adorable animals perform as a means of showing their talents and cuteness. The problem is that most of these performing critters are frequently abused and kept in deplorable conditions. Such is the case at the V Theater in Las Vegas, Nevada and Popovich’s pet acts. Read more on this issue and the care of the animals here.
As described in the article, the animals at this venue were kept in tiny carriers that were stacked on top of one another with minimal space or ventilation while larger animals like goats were crammed into a tiny pen. These animals would be featured in a video associated with the World Famous Popovich Comedy Pet Theatre. This show engages some 30 rescued animals in an entertainment capacity. As stated by one of the animal advocates who shows concern says that such inappropriate situations are quite common. Animals in a performing situation are “normally subjected to intense confinement, the noise and chaos of large crowds of people, the lack of opportunity to exercise and irregular access to food and water."
These rescued animals associated with Popovich’s acts are treated inappropriately. It can be adorable and heartwarming to see critters perform, but it's never acceptable once we realize they are kept in awful conditions.
Let's encourage the V Theatre in Las Vegas not to support such animal mistreatment by barring the World Famous Popovich Comedy Pet Theatre from performing at their venue.

V Theatre of Las Vegas, Nevada – I strongly urge you to bar World Famous Popovich Comedy Pet Theatre from performing at your Venue. Allowing them to perform literally promotes their mistreatment and confinement of the animals involved.

Witnesses have also noted mistreatment and mishandling of the animals before and after performing. Stop the abuse and cruelty to these animals by doing your part to ban this pet theatre from performing.
