If i could give this place 0 stars i would. This place is horrible. The animals are so badly taken care of it makes me sick. We rescued a cat from there today. When i came in and saw the cats they had two persian kittens. They had 4 cats sharing one litter box. I asked to see one of them and when he brought it out i could not even hold it. it smelled like it had bathed in poop and pee for months! I had to place him on the chair. I started inspecting the cat. When i lifted his tail i saw that he had a mat of fur and poop the size of a golf ball covering his back side. The poor thing couldn't even go to the bathroom because it was completely covered. it was evident this cat had not been tended to in weeks even though the sales clerk stated that they are cleaned every two weeks. I demanded that he take it in the back and shave its back side because that was probably extremely painful for the cat. I left for two hrs and was so distraught at the state of the kitten i decided to purchase it just to get it out of there. Upon my return the owner was there and she approached us and asked us if we wanted the kitten (which they had now shaved and somewhat bathed but his poor tushie was bleeding from the hair pulling so hard) When i made an offer on the cat she turned me down and then after telling her what state the kitten was in when i was just in she decided to accept our offer. She said that she didn't want to sell us the cat if we were just going to go to the news! if your worried about people going to the news you should be taking care of your animals! The puppies smells horrid. some didn't have food or water, some had sores and had kennel cough. This place needs to be closed down. No one has cleaned in there in months and they treat their animals horribly. We are just praying this little guy isn't sick because he had been doing nothing but sneezing since we got him along with watery eyes and runny nose. The worst part is if i didn't go in there today and demand they take care of the cat he would have been like for a lot longer.

I wish I could give it a negative score. Buying a puppy from Pet Kingdom was one of the biggest regrets I have ever had. As you can see from the other reviews, the store is nice, fun even, but none of these people purchased a pet while they were there. They just enjoy the scenery. It is catchy and helps distract you from the terrible condition of most of the animals, specifically the puppies. If they did make a purchase, they would know that they get their puppies from a broker named Lambriar, who transports them via semi-truck to many other stores in the area, including Petland. I found the dog that I was looking for and I was asking questions. I was told Lambriar was the breeder.

This is not the truth, they buy from breeders and resell nationwide and have a very poor reputation. I wish I stopped to research this. As we were paying, the salesclerk was sure to let me know that they made commission and that she was putting someone else's name on the sale because she was salaried. Glad to know they care about animals here, oh wait, no just sales. The worst part of all is that the puppy came home with a severe case of kennel cough and giardia, two very common conditions for pet store pets and both very noticeable if you spend even 5 minutes with the puppy. I was very upset that I was not told about this. I have made three trips (60 miles round trip each) to their vet in Fort Myers, who spent more time selling me dog food than examining the dog. It is clear he enjoys his contract with them because he had the audacity to tell me I was lucky the puppy had kennel cough now because he would be stronger later and it is a good thing.

I watch this puppy have coughing fits two dozen times a day and he often gets nauseous. He sleeps most of the day. I have missed work for his vet visits, to pick up medicine and to watch him on the days he has been very bad. I have tried calling the pet store 3 times. I was told once that the manager would call me back. Four days later, I called because they never did and I was told there really was no manager for "that department". The person I spoke with the third time was supposed to get me the form for the microchip to be put into our name and they said they needed to find it from someone at Lambriar. It has been two weeks. This has been a really sad and upsetting processes and it is clear to me that they do not care for their animals or their customers. I will never enter this store again and I suggest you do the same. These are living things.

Went with my husband and son to do the Lemur experience. $10 for 10 minutes to sit inside this small cage with 2 Lemurs. The girl up front told us that they might stick their tongue up our nose so make sure to cover your face if they try to do so and that they have a potential to bite but it feels like puppy teeth. I was kind of weary about the situation but I figured how bad can it be. Well let me tell you. As soon as I got in I started getting bit by one of the lemurs. The same lemur kept coming up and just ripping and biting my arm and neck. By the time I tried to get it off it would jump off. I had to tell my husband to go find the girl and tell her that I wanted out. My son did not receive one bite but I have 5 huge bite wounds all over my arms and neck. I was dripping in blood and horrified. The girl gave me some alcohol and basically said ohhh wow he sure did get you good. An experience that was supposed to a good one turned into a nightmare. I recommend nobody doing this!! Bad idea! These lemurs are stuck in a small cage everyday and should be in the wild. No wonder they bite and are pissed off. Pet Kingdom will do anything for a $buck$ and they don't care about the animals or the customers!! I was tramatized from that experience and will NEVER go back! I am just glad my son did not get bit. I just hope these wounds do not get infected and that these lemurs are up to date on their shots.

This pet store is so horrible. Their animals are so ill and kept in ways that are completely inhumane and abusive. There is a poor sphynx kitty there, for example, that is skin and bones. He looks so sad and unhealthy. He is used for

My wife and I used to enjoy going into pet kingdom, where we would gawk at the unusual animal varieties and purchase the occasional thousand dollar puppy. My wife and I stopped in on a Monday afternoon with hopes to purchase a 5 month old pug we had heard about. We asked one of the employees for some information about the pug. She was very kind and seemed very knowledgeable. While we were strolling about trying to make up our minds about the $800 pug puppy, the owners son ( who I suppose, is also an owner) charged up to my wife and snatched her plastic iced tea cup out of her hand. " can I throw this away for you?" he said with disgust, adding, " your not suppose to have drinks here!" my wife and I had been there almost an hour and no one informed us of this policy. I completely understand why they do not allow drinks in this setting, however the way in which this rule was informed troubled my wife and I. When we spoke to the cashier about the incident which left my wife shaken, she apologized for her bosses behavior, and said " he gets like that, he can be aggressive." wow, just the type of person who should be taking care of animals. Let's stop flowing money into this aggressive jerk's pocket. I'll purchase my overpriced puppies elsewhere.

The BEST.......
I love this place. I travel down to Ft. Myers a couple times a year and always stop by Pet Kingdom. This time it was a big WOW, it looks like a tropical rain forest. The place looks incredible . They have done such a nice job remodeling

The staff is always so helpful and are willing to listen to what I'm looking for. The animals are always so happy, because they are out in the middle of the action. I bought my first puppy there 7 years ago and love her to death. I just got my second puppy there last month and she is as sweet as Chloe, my first addition to my family.

Thank You Pet Kingdom for giving me 2 great dogs, Chloe and Sadie.

I'll be back

This store is so helpful.

I went to two other pet stores before finding Pet Kingdom. I went in one and they referred me to another. I went to the other where I asked my questions and they called another employee who called another employee who called over another. So now I had four of these pet store employees who all shrugged their shoulders and sent me here.

All I had was a few simple care questions for my sons new bearded dragon (lizard). The staff at Pet Kingdom was so knowledgeable about all aspects of care. I was so happy to find this place. Now I know my newest addition to the family is being cared for properly and I have a really neat place to go every week to pick up my lizards crickets and meal worms.

Awesome Store!

Wow! Thats what you say as you open the front door of this place! You have monkeys to the left, kinkajous to the right, and a 4 ft water fall in front of you. All three things just when you walk in. They have a great selection of puppies and birds too. Not only do they have the animals they have all the supplies to care for them so that you don't have to go anywhere else. They also have a very knowledgeable staff to help out with any questions about animal care that you might have. This is not just a pet store, this is a place you take your family every week and a place that you tell your family members that live out of state, "you have got to see this place when you come down." This Place is like a piece of Disney placed right out your back door in Ft.Myers, FL.

As a certified "Pet Shop Junkie" i spend my off time in most of the shops in the area , checking out the latest critter arrivals and of course sometimes a new lizard or fish makes its way home with me. anyways, Pet Kingdom has always been my favorite because of all the types of animals you are going to see and they went from the coolest pet shop in the area to the coolest shop anywhere ive ever been . Its like you are walking into a rainforest with all those giant trees and the animals like it as much as me i can tell . thank you pet kingdom nice job

I enjoy every visit to pet kingdom and visit as often as possible, the staff there is very friendly and caring. Pet kingdom makes sure that if you purchase a pet that you and your new pet become family, not just a show piece for a price. We have a complete family of pets from there and I wouldnt trade any of them for the world, if asked questions staff will help you in any possible way. Even if this means you dont take the pet. They would never want a pet to go to a non loved home. I love all my babies and adults pets from monkeys to kitties to dogs. They still answer any questions I have with just a call.

I have read the reviews below and am so sad to say that most that are bad reviews are from dis-gruntled employees or people as I spoke of earlier and wanted an animal they could show off, and probly did and do they not realize that every person or other animal that you brought your puppy in contact with could have given your puppy these illness' or people that didnt wash their hands and handled a sick animal. HOW COULD YOU BLAME PET KINGDOM for you own lack of judgement and not taking this poor defensless puppy to the vet. I know that pet kingdoms warranty states that you should take your purchase to your own vet with in 48 hrs, so if you didnt do this well shame on you!!!!! I also purchased three of those so called puppy milled yorkies in July for my daughters and they are all fine and healthy, they also went to the family vet the day we purchased them and were given nutrical due to the long ride 2 of them had to go on the following day to panama city where my daughter lives. Shame on you for not helping this puppy when it was not feeling good. You let it die and then you want to blame the pet store.
I believe in Karma and for those of you that decided to slam an employer well think about it later when Karma comes to visit you!!!!

This is a great store. I visit it weekly and have for years. Sometimes the staff is very busy but that just shows how busy the store stays because it's so liked by so many. If someone wants a top of the line dog then they should go to a private breeder and pay thousands, not hundreds. However since most people can not afford and would not think of ever spending that much on a dog then settle for what you paying for. If you want a Lexus buy one, if not don't be surprised when your Kia breaks down. For those of you who say to go to another pet store in town, guess what, the same delivery truck goes there next with the remainder of the puppies that did not get selected by Pet kingdom. And for the guy who bought the Yorkie, next time before you buy a dog, do your research!!! Yorkies are predisposed to hypoglycemia! This means that the Nutrical they gave you and showed you how to use for essential nutrients the puppy needed to keep it's sugars at an appropriate level. For you to wait three days while your puppy laid there lifeless and not contacting a veterinarian is neglectful. Weather or not Pet Kingdom was open, there is a 24 hour emergency vet just about everywhere! Again, if you would have done your research you would have know that all you have to do is give the dog "that stuff in a tube" and entice it with a little tasty food and the dog would have eaten and been fine! How many people are parents of relatively healthy children and never drank or smoked or did anything wrong to make the child sick. Sometimes young mammals (children or dogs) get sick. Sometimes they get allergies. Sometimes those allergies are so prominent that medication is needed to make that persons or in this case dogs life more comfortable. Right? Anyway, this is really a great store in my opinion and equal if not superior to other pet stores I have been in. For example if you visit any local pet store in lee county you will find about three dogs per pen. The only difference is the other stores do not allow the dogs to have interaction with humans at such an early and important stage of their lives. They are behind glass and instead of soft paper under their feet they have hard wire. I personally have bought dogs from this store in the past and have always been very satisfied.

I bought a bird from Pet Kingdom 2 years ago, and the only reason I went back was for the free wing and nail clipping. When I bought the bird, I was told that it was a courtesy option that was offered for buying my over priced bird.there. Curtesy my a**! I usually got a look from some of the staff like I'm impossing a major inconvenience on them. If they don't want to trim for free, then don't offer that service. The LAST time I took my bird there for a trim, I was told that I should bring it back 3 hours later because they were too busy, even though the sign on the wall said "Trimming... Monday - Friday 10 till 5". I haven't been back since. I always got the feeling like THEY were doing ME a big favor for letting me spend my money there.
I'm sorrry to read the reviews about the bad experiences others have had at Pet Kingdom. If Pet Kingdom is getting their dog from "puppy mills" shame on them! I get real pissed when I hear that animals come in second at the cost of greed. If I were to get a dog, my first choice would be to adopt a puppy from a shelter or a reputable breeder, not from most of this areas pet stores.

I bought a Maltese, Lily, from Pet Kingdom 6 years ago. She had many health problems I came to find out. She passed away last week and because she had so many problems, the vet couldn't pin point the exact cause. She was most likely inbreed. She had asthma, an enlarged heart, stones in her gall bladder, just to mention a few. She was my baby and I am heartbroken. I remember the employees at Pet Kingdom being extremely rude but I felt at the time that I wanted to rescue her. I would never, ever again, buy from Pet Kingdom.

I visited Pet Kingdom while on vacation, and yes, the dogs are adorable, BUT the conditions they live in are HORRIBLE. I had stopped at another pet store on the way (I miss my dog so I wanted to go play with some!), and while I would never buy from a pet store, at least the dogs in this store were clean. At Pet Kingdom, I petted and played with some poodles whose coats were matted, and they had poop stuck in them. There were usually 2 to 3 dogs in a small glass case which should house maybe one dog, and they had not been cleaned. As much as I don't want to buy from pet stores, I almost bought a dog, because I felt SO bad for him, and the way he was being treated.

Its just like being in an air conditioned ZOO! They have Tons of puppies all the time (like 30!) kittens, reptiles, ferrets and my favorite (and daughters) MONKEYS!!! i think they have about 5! They have like 100 or more Birds! Lots of big ones, alot of them are nice and friendly so you know the staff must spend lots of time with them. The staff are always nice, although thte place is so busy sometimes its hard to track one down thats not busy! For the most part the place is Clean except around the puppies, they're usually an odor (Phew!) but thats alot of puppies in one area so thats understandable

This is one of those pet stores that's hard to rate. One one hand their selection of animals is easily the best in the Ft. Myers area. Not only the staple cats and dogs at Pet Kingdom, but also rabbits, ferrets, hedgehogs, birds, tons of fish, and some more exotic pets that aren't for sale. Pet Kingdom is a lot of fun just to walk around and check out all the pets.

However, many of the supplies (not to mention the pets themselves) are overpriced. A bag of food for my pet prarie dog was a full $2 more than the same bag at one of the national pet super-chains. Go for the zoo, but save the cash and buy elsewhere.

PROS: Lots and lots of awesome pets to look at and play with.
CONS: Very expensive, not a great selection.
