I will never buy an animal from any other pet store but PetCo on Overton Ridge Blvd. You can tell they really care for the animals and do a lot of hands on socializing with them.I have bought a ferret, a rabbit and 2 rats from the store and can really tell a difference between the pets attitudes from Overton Ridge location compared to Altamesa. (Pets I bought from Altamesa seemed to have little contact with people and were skittish.) every time I go in Petco Overton Ridge I have to make my rounds to say "hello" to all the animals. The birds are so sweet and love to give kisses, but at Altamesa they flap around freaking out as soon as you enter the bird room. If you want a pet thats going to let you touch it, even small hamsters, go to Overton Ridge Petco.
