I would not spend a cent here. The smell hits you hard when you walk in the door, and from there, you see cramped animals everywhere you look. Mixed breed kittens for sale for $200, in cages with nothing soft to lay on. They were cuddled

I made the mistake of purchasing from this place once; I paid a ridiculous amount for a full-grown adult maliensis uromastyx (or the mali uromastyx). It had parasites, was emaciated, had a rot nose, and was low on calcium due to it's living conditions. They're supposed to be in a 30 gallon tank minimum and this one was housed (for God knows how long) in a tank that was smaller than 5 gallons. It barely fit the entire reptile and any knowledgeable reptile owner could tell you that mali uromastyx are not supposed to have water in it's cages due to the high humidity, and this one was housed in a small tank with a little water bowl right next to it. They're desert animals that get water from the plants they eat. Everything was overpriced here and they were very unknowledgeable about the majority of the animals kept. It was disgusting. Never returning, unless it's to spit in the owner's face.

Also, all of the puppies are known to be from puppy mills. They're crammed in the smallest cages possible for hours on end with other puppies. It's disgusting.

First off, to the comments a few below me: Purchasing a puppy that you know is from a puppy mill makes you guilty of perpetuating them to begin with, if not worse than unknowing people. You're giving them more money which just lets them

The person below seems to be friends w/ someone there. We were warned by several people NEVER go to HarMar Pets, but we called and they had a polydactyl/hemmingway kitten we wanted. Well, after rude service, a mix up not apologized for

har mar pet shop does sell puppies, unlike many pet stores these days. however, before going and bashing their reputation i would look at the facts. they have been open since 1980 and been very successful as an small family run independent

YES! puppy mills are bad i am not saying they are good in anyway and yes 5 out of 10 times you buy a puppy from a pet store and they are sick you buy them sick. I just got my puppy Sakura from Har Mar pet shop and she was sick....She has a bloody stool. Took her to the vet and YES har mar paid for her medacine. I am very protective of her, She is my baby and i watch her like a hawk. Never lettin her out of my sight. And so far everything has been going good. But anyway, Back to the point, Puppy mills, humane society, pet shelter. What really is the difference. Weather the dog came from a puppy mill or from a previous home. It still needs a home now. Your telling me that you wouldnt buy a dog due to the fact that you would buy it sick....If i had a choice of buying a dog i knew was sick and needed a home and needed to be takin care of OR a dog who was healthy and playful with a great personality. I would take the sick dog and i would help bring it back to health. So honestly you people and your stop puppy mills yes i agree but dont tell people they shouldnt buy their dogs from a pet shop because its from a puppy mill yes the shop supports a puppy mill but what mattered to me is that i saved a life, im continuing to save a life. i feel that people should adopt an animal despite the fact of where the dog is from....where is was bred....you wouldnt refuse to adopt a child because of where its from you would adopt the child knowing it needs a home knowing it would most likely die if not....why not do the same for and animal....just my opinion.....the animal needs a home and needs help....why not help? i helped...and now my puppy is doing amazing...i couldnt be happier...

Please do your homework. normally I would never buy from a petstore but my dog chose me even though I was fairly convinced he was a puppy mill dog. I did some homework when I got home and saw that yes indeed he did come from a known puppy mill. Go through a breeder and not a petstore. My dog is in good health and they are seen by a vet before you buy them but just beware.

Pros: my dog was in good health

Cons: way overpriced for a puppy mill dog. not pure breed

The ball pythons I saw there looked dangerously skinny, and didn't have any water offered to them in their enclosures. Also, I was looking at the tarantulas being sold, and a Rosehair Tarantula was marked as a ($35.00 no less) King Baboon Tarantula. I informed an employee that the cage it was being kept in was marked incorrectly, and she rudely stated it was a King Baboon Tarantula and that she wasn't taking it out. I understand that they specialize in small dogs and other small mammals, but seriously, if you're going to be caring for and selling an animal, you should know what the f*** it is. Also, there was a correctly labeled Rosehair right next to it, that looked exactly the same given a more red hue, and she still refused to be talked with. Why don't you go read a book, seeing as rosehairs are one of if not the MOST COMMON tarantula sold for pets along with Pink Toes, and if you aren't able to identify those, maybe you shouldn't be working there. Twat.

This business supports and perpetuates puppy mills--factory-breeding of dogs under deplorable, inhumane conditions. These animals are of poor physical and emotional health. Please consider adopting an animal in need of a home from a shelter or a rescue group. Puppy mills and pet stores like Har Mar Pet Shop are a disgrace and a shame to Minnesota.

Or, try a Google search for "puppy mill" for what this business is selling and supporting.
