It was a moment of weakness for me. I bought this little aussie. It was too soon after my beloved border/aussie of 14 died. I shouldn't have. I brought her back. the next day. Now I am even sicker realizing she is still on those fricken bars in the mall. Hell it is for her. Even sicker realizing my son said today she is still their. Yes it is a she a living breathing being. Puking on my keyboards.... What is she going to do spend her entire puppyhooe in a cage if I go back and get her am i supporting those people. if you can call them that. It is not human . If you did that with good breeder you would not worry.. Here i worry....
im supposed to write what i like and dislike right? ill focus on this one store Debby's Petland (or what i like to call Devil's Petland) :
This store is the worst place you will ever visit. It really is run by the devil. He sentenced these poor, innocent puppies to a life in heck. And why? What was their crime? Coming from a puppy mill. Oh sure, theyll tell you that they didnt get this adorable little lump of fur from a puppy mill. And thats the truth... sort of. Sure it wasnt directly from there, it went through one more person before it came into their hands. And its not only their poor hounds, but the birds live in torture. Cramped into cages ment for guinea pigs with two dozen others. drinking water from a source that never gets cleaned and sitting there for a week after they die. Debby's Petland employees have no idea how to take care of a pet, and honestly dont care about them. Ive read a review about one good-hearted woman who stepped up and got a job there just to save some of these poor animals. What did they do? They told her they had an official vet that they pay to do that kind of work and her services were no longer needed. Of course, she knew that they had one, she'd seen the vet examine a pet. A dog that was limping was "absolutely fine" and a bird that had a runny nose was "totally okay".
I cant decide if we should boycott this place to save innocent puppies, or save that still have time.
It is apparent that this place isnt getting shut down anytime soon because they don't like when pictures are taken and they probably have one killer insurance policy.
Save the globe. Get rid of evil places like the "Devil's" Petland.
The stores are nice overall, has kind of an older arcade/game room for kids. There is also a pet store which really surprised me, because I thought they were illegal everywhere, but apparently not in MA.
Against my better judgement, we went in, and I saw a schnoodle who was "on sale." I tried to find more information, like parentage, and even what size dogs were bred to create this one. (mini & standard, two mini's, etc.) and they didn't know. They said mixed breeds arrive just as is and there's no additional paperwork. The lady who helped me was attentive and seemed to care very much about the dogs, although she didn't really know a great deal. (she asked Me what breeds were crossed to get a Schnoodle.) Since she didn't have more info, she wrote down the name/number of the breeder that they received him from which I thought was nice. (He came from Oklahoma to Cape Cod and was only 4 months old!)
When I see a pet store in the mall, red flags go up. I was so close to buying (saving) this dog. We don't have a fence/crate/leash/food/vet, etc. but I was still close to taking him home. He needed a bath so badly, and his nose was very dry. :( I just wanted to take him right to a vet, then to a groomer to be washed and trimmed. He had a sweet personality and didn't really nip for a puppy. I was happy that after we finished playing with him in our little room, he was allowed to run around the store and play with other customers.
After reading the other posts here, especially from the former employee, I'm glad I didn't buy him, yet my heart still breaks knowing he's still there stuck in that cage.
This dog was in a large cage, but the holes in the floor grate were very large, and the mats people mention for sleeping are small. (The dog has to curl up in order to fit on it.)
The whole experience has left me torn; all I can say is that if you do buy from a pet store, PLEASE do some homework/research on the breeders they got the animal from AND be sure to take to your OWN vet for inspection...not a vet they recommend.
Firstly, it's wrong to keep dogs in small cramped crates for most of the day. They only have a tiny little mat to sleep on & the rest of the grate area is grated so smaller puppier get their paws stuck. Even if they had enough room to walk around they wouldnt be able to because it would be uncomfortable.
I saw a min pin that had such terrible eye crust that I swear it had to be an infection.
My boyfriend's brother bought a supposed "pure bred" pug from Debbie's in Hyannis (it happened to be 'on sale'. Nice, huh? ugh) He is not pure bred & also has a deformed toe. So not only are the conditions disgusting but they are charging people thousands of dollars on "pure breeds" when they really aren't.
It's nothing but an awful greedy place. & the people who work there are rude & arent educated about the proper care of animals at all.
DONT BUY FROM THEM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
People, ANY pet store selling puppies gets them from puppy mills. The breeding stock is kept in the worst possible conditions. There's more wrong with Debbie's Petland than just lousy conditions there; anything you buy there, even a leash, supports the ghastly business of puppy mills. Also kitten mills and ferret mills. Anyone who's been there and sees rotten conditions should report them to the local SPCA or to their local legislators.
The puppies here are kept in 2' by 2' cages, if that. They are given a small rubber mat to sleep on. The ferrets are far to young to be sold and shouldnt be in woodchip bedding. They always look sick and are fed wet food disgusting looking food. I feel bad for any animal that comes to this place. If your reading this and you want to shut this place down, right a letter to the company. Every little thing makes a difference.
Never, and I repeat, NEVER buy a dog from this horrible, horrible place. They treat there animals in the worst ways possible. All the dogs are in small cages and are forced to sleep on metal bars. They drink out of water containers built for hamsters and guinea pigs. Betas are in cups you would drink out of. Birds are even in a cage, it's like a glass box and the water given to them is green and doesn't look like its been cleaned in a few months. Employees are rude and won't answer any questions.
My uncle had bought his Lab from there, she had to be treated for worms and now has an ear infection she'll have for the rest of her life.
