Please realize people that if you buy ANYTHING at this store - animals, food, toys, etc. - you are helping to condemn untold numbers of breeding stock dogs - back at the puppy mills (please see pics) - to their hellacious horrible short lives.
When you think you are saving the cute puppy in the cage, please remember the adult dogs suffering back at the puppy factories, that will never make it out, never receive love, petting, hugs, clean water, decent food, treatment for their wounds/infections, or something soft to lie on. Great info on the HSUS site - google HSUS Petland to read all about it. ASPCA, Best Friends, North Shore Animal League, Doris Day Animal League - any major animal welfare organization has extensive info on puppy mills on their respective websites - please read up. Please go to your local shelter or breed rescue and do not support this horrible business in any way.
Sickly Animals and Rude Staff
My sister and I are looking for another dog to add to our family. We decided to go to Petland in G-town to view what type of dogs they had available. When we walked in, it was so sad to see these little dogs literally laying on top of each other in wire cages. We decided to look at a English bulldog puppy. The old man with glasses (did not get his name) got the puppy and brought her to us. It was immediately evident that the puppy was malnourished because you could see every rib and its hip bones protruding. She also had ear mites very badly. We asked how much they wanted for her and he quoted $1600!! Okay, there was no registration for this dog...why the hell would she be $1600...my sister mentioned that she had seen puppies with registration for $650-$800 from breeders in the area. The man, grabbed the puppy and proceeded to take her back to her cage. When my sister asked to see a different pup, he responded "That one is $4000 what makes you think you can afford it...". We left. Not only are we going to send our complaint to the BBB, we will review them on every web site we can find, I'm turning them in for animal cruelty, and filing a formal complaint with their corporate offices. This is ridiculous. Someone needs to shut them down NOW. Their animals are in horrible shape, the staff is rude, and their prices are clearly too high for a normal market. NEVER EVER BUY FROM PETLAND.
