I worked for Rumford for 6 years. Until I was let go for issues out of my control. If the management in the warwick store could focus more on their jobs and not the clicks they form or who's dating who in the office and not

I love animals and have all my life. I thought that Rumford was a reputable natural pet store. On my interview, I directly asked where these puppies come from. I was blatantly lied to as they said they work with a few breeders who breed

This store is horrible! Not because of the staff in this particular location, but because they sell puppies in the location at Warwick and any store supporting that cruelty should be shut down. The staff in Warwick is unfriendly. First

this place is disgusting. I bouhgt a puuppy here not knowing anything about the place and i wish i hadn't. They are liers. They said she was a healthy dewormed beagle and the day following te purchase the vet informed us that she had roundworm, and kennel cough that could get worse. SHe is on three meds now and is unenergized and just sleeps all the time. do not buy anything from here. I plan on finding a way to have them shut down if the dont refund my money. I will pickiting this weekend at the warwick store if they dont refund my money today!!! everyone that goes into that store should know how horrible they treat their puppies and how they are sick.

I bought a baby rabbit from Rumford Pet Center in East Providence, RI, 3 weeks ago to the day. I bought all the equipment and food the sales woman told me I would need. She was fantastic for the first week or so...she was very animated and social around people, which surprised me since I thought rabbits didn't do much. She became extremely ill about one day ago (lethargic and not eating as much as she used to.) She died today after only having her for 3 weeks. I'm absolutely appalled this happened. It wasn't until I searched the web for reviews on the pet store that I learned it is a terrible operation. I don't recommend this store. In fact, I think it should close its doors forever.

I haven't personally bought a pet from Rumford, but mainly because I NEVER buy from pet stores. When I was 8, I got a cocker spaniel from a pet store and she was a puppy mill dog and sadly died. It was so heartbreaking at such a yound age that I only go to reputable breeders & shelters for adopt. First mistake was buying from a pet store.
Why isn't anyone doing anything? If they are actually using puppy mills & breaking the law, why would u waste your time "spreading the word" and report them to shut them down. Have them invesigated!!!

Pros: shuts them down and forces responsibility

Cons: take a little time

MY 9 MONTH GOLDEN RETRIEVER HAS BEEN SICK SINCE WE PURCHASED HER. WE HAVE BEEN TOLD BY NUMEROUS VETS AND CONSUMERS THAT RUMFORD BUYS SICK, INBRED PUPPIES FROM MID WESTERN PUPPY MILLS. IT IS HEART-BREAKING TO WATCH A MEMBER OF YOUR FAMILY SLOWLY SUFFER. THIS BUSINESS KNOWINGLY PURCHASES SICK DOGS-AGAINST RI LAW!!! THIS STORE SHOULD BE SHUT DOWN. I WOULD LOVE TO HELP.

I cannot comment on the dogs, birds, rabbits or anything besides that you shouldn't be dumb enough to buy from petshops...idiots!

What I do know is that the staff in the aquarium is top notch. If they think you buying 2 fish is bad they will educate you on why and what is a good alternative. Its clean, well maintained, and they've got a good selection (compared to the normal petshop fish). They always are waiting to help and give tips and remember who you are and what fish you have. Customer for life!

Don't be dumb enough to buy a dog from a petshop though.

The dog my family purchased here had to be put down within the first few months of her life. Her defects ended up being so severe that she could not be humanely kept living.

Since then, I have heard from others that this has happened to them. There is nothing more heartbreaking than watching your puppy die before your (and your childrens') eyes.

Don't support a place that purposefully breeds puppies that can't survive.

Cons: puppy mill dogs, no shame, sick puppies, sick people

I hope this bulletin will serve as a basis to inform consumers about the unethical and immoral business conducted by Rumford Pet Center in East Providence, Rhode Island.

I purchased a Miniature Schnauzer from Rumford Pet Center. One week to the day I brought her home she fell very ill and was diagnosed with Pneumonia. Based on Sasha's condition, the veterinarian informed us that she was infected with Pneumonia far before we purchased her from Rumford Pet Center. She has been in an animal hospital since Sunday and has made very little progress. She will be put to sleep today.

Rumford Pet Center treated my situation as though I had purchased a pair of damaged shoes and the simplest solution would be to bring them back for a new pair, stating I could "return the sick dog for another one". All I asked was that they take responsibility for the cost of her treatment. The General Manager I initially spoke with refused to contribute anything to Sasha's highly expensive hospital bill.

Rhode Island Law prohibits the sale of sick puppies and has Lemon Laws to protect consumers. After comparison, I've found that the 20 day warranty Rumford Pet Center provides to their customers matches the Rhode Island law exactly. Rumford Pet Center does not go one step above what the law requires of them. They lack compassion and consideration on behalf of the animals and their customers.

After sharing my experience at Rumford Pet Center with others I have learned that many people have purchased sick, inbred and/or aggressive animals at this establishment. It is also said that Rumford Pet Center works in conjunction with Puppy Mills.

I hope that everyone in my area will spread the word about the business dealings and policies of Rumford Pet Center.

WE'VE HAVE HEARD THAT THERE HAVE BEEN OTHER PUPPIES IN THE PAST FEW WEEKS THAT HAVE BEEN ADMITTED TO THE SAME ANIMAL HOSPITAL ALSO ILL.

This is the place to go for ALL pet needs. They sell TOP line pet foods, toys, treats, among other things to numerous to mention. Their staff is very helpful and knowlegable and very eager to help make your experience a positive one. They also have pets for sale that are very well taken care of and you can play with them too!
