Petland is Biggest Customer to Puppy Mills 10/10/2008

Petland is the single largest customer of puppy mills in the entire United States. They state they only buy from ""USDA Approved"" kennels. USDA Approved kennels ARE puppy mills! And kitten mills, too. Petland is notorious for lying to the gullible and unsuspecting public, giving false breeder numbers (To the Hunte Corporation in many cases), rarely an address because most people are not going to drive several states away to see the breeder - I mean, puppy mill for themselves. They tout the ""Hunte Corporation"" as their supplier of puppies - which they are - they are puppy mill brokers. The puppies are ""laundered"" through them. They buy the puppies from the mills and sell them to Petland. No local, ""responsible"" breeder (as if there were any) would be able to stock the Petland stores with endless supplies of puppies of all breeds unless there were hundreds of pairs of different breeds i.e. puppy mills. Nor would any breeder who claims to ""love"" their dogs sell to a corporate giant that treats animals as nothing more than inventory. Don't let them fool you; do the research. They are all very trained in their deception, and it sounds above board if you don't check it out. Remember, every time you buy, a shelter dog dies. If you want a specific breed, go to Petfinder. com - they specialize in all breeds, ages, sexes and sizes. And they don't cost thousands of dollars. BOYCOTT PETLAND! Cons: Everything from service to selling puppy mill puppies more

PETLAND RULES!!! 8/22/2008

Actually I work at the Petland at Preston in Dallas, and it is a perfect place to get pets!! We are all animal lovers that have been also extensively trained to care and explain how to care for all the types of animals we have. WE ARE NOT A ""PET STORE"" LIKE ""PETSMART"" OR ""PETCO""!!!! These are primarily supply stores that quit carrying animals due to lawsuits from lack of care and housing abilities. Petland is a global private franchise that takes pride in customer service and the utmost care of the animals. We are dedicated for finding the right pet for the right customer and meeting the needs of both! We get ALL of our animals, including the puppies, from U.S.D.A. approved hobbyist and breeders, and the animals are not taken from their mother until they are weaned and are in 14 hour a day care EVERYDAY thereafter. They are transported in specialized climate controlled trucks and checked by at least 3 veterinarians before they even go on sale, and are visited by a veterinarian every week thereafter. We do not believe in substandard facilities such as ""puppy mills"" and in no way condone it. ALL of our animals are played with and socialized everyday all day long, and would not sell one that is otherwise. You CANNOT get that guarantee from any ""private seller""! We also cover the intial veterinary visit after purchase in addition to the spay and neuter, and the puppy is guaranteed to be current on ALL of its vaccinations. All of the puppies are also microchipped and come with lifetime training assistance, so please tell me of any ""private seller"" that does that! We also welcome anyone to come play with our puppies and animals, they need all the love they can get, even if they dont go home. That makes us a great place to bring the kids!! Come on in and experience Petland for yourself, and you'll see all the stuff you've been missing going to ""those other guys""! more

Not, Not, Not 2/7/2007

How tragic for the pets in our community that there are still people in the pet 'business' that sell kittens/cats, puppies/dogs, rabbits & ferrets.\r \r How many years ago has it been that PETsMART and PETCO showed the world that they could be very successful and have a lucrative business and NOT sell cats & dogs? Both PETsMART and PETCO support your community (therefore helping to save your tax dollars) by working with humane & rescue groups. \r \r Before you buy a pet from PETLAND DO YOUR HOMEWORK. Where do they get their ""livestock""??? Why would any reputable breeder sell to a pet store when they can make 2-3 times as much money per animal selling directly to the owner? How old were the infants when taken from the mothers? How much human contact did they have, starting at what age (how socialized are they)? \r \r I am a humane volunteer and have been for 20 years. I hear horror stories every day from people who have purchased pets from pet stores. Many of them felt sorry for the babies in the store and purchased for that reason. Others simply didn't know the pitfalls of pet store pets until it was too late. In the end it didn't matter why they purchased, the vast majority wished they had been educated and had adopted humane instead.\r \r Search online about puppy mills before setting foot in this store or any pet store that sells pets.\r \r You'll find an endless list of humane and rescue groups online at petfinders and you'll probably find at least one group working adoptions out of your local PETsMART and PETCO every weekend. They are volunteers, they don?t make money fostering & adopting animals.\r \r Please don't buy when so many die in our shelters.\r \r Thanks for listening. What I have stated here is not as much my opinion as it is my experience over the last 20 years. I've talked to a ton of people with broken hearts & sick or dying pets. If you truly care about pets & animals this is really important.\r \r Kat\r more
