so i walked in to pet city and as soon as i hit the door my nose made me want to turn away but my daughters ran in so i just followed them in and then i saw George take a big bucket like the one you use to carry cement and at first i thought oww hes going to feed them but then he took off the lid and a million mice stacked all the way up to the top fell out and i was amazed they were even alive.
then i went to the birds and saw the love birds and it reminded me of when i had one then i realized they had NO food and one of the birds was dead on the floor and the birds were EATING IT.....grossss..... then i told GEORGE that it was dead and they were eating it and he said '' its ok let them finish it''.
then i walked over to the guinea pigs and they were cute and little and i saw one that was all black and gold and i saw how LONG there toenails were and i almost died... i felt so bad for it i bought it and took it home but before i made them cut there toenails and then i had it for A DAY and it DIED.... then i got another and it died to...and i had man

My family and I have been shoppong at Pet City for more than seven years. They have always had the animals that i am interested in and the supplies i needed. The dogs seem very friendly and are always playing when I walk in. George is a kool Guy. His employees are nice as well. The only thing is that the prices can be high, and there is not much variety in reptile species. Other then that, Pet city is a great buisness!

When I walked in, two dogs that were kept in the same cage were fighting. The fish section seemed clean. The reptile section, not so much. Then towards the back with all the other dogs, they seemed ok. But all the dogs looked very pent up with energy, and I wouldn't recommend buying from there. I didn't get a chance to look at everything else, as the smell drove me out.

I just wanted to add that I bought a Boston Terrier from Pet City along with other animals, such as a hamster, and tropical fish, and I have had great experiences with all my purchases. I think that George is a wonderful person and manager of Pet City. He is a fantastic part of our community who is friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable about his product. Yes, it's a business, and I agree that Pet City is out to make money, but that doesn't mean that they're doing it at the expense of the animals. As a customer, I've been shopping at the Whittier store for over ten years now, and I can say that George does a fabulous job at meeting the needs of the community, and making money as any business should. I just worry a bit about the store staying afloat, not because of some dumb allegations of puppy mills, but simply because of our current state of the economy. As I look at the comments below, most are positive. To those that are negative, I just have one thing to say, life is not perfect, and sometimes in life things go wrong. Just because things didn't work out for you at Pet City doesn't mean that the whole store is bad. Stand at the door and ask shoppers what they think about Pet City of Whittier, most would give a positive reaction. George keep up the good work, you're the biggest reason I shop there, and thumbs down to those who unjustly criticize your store. :)

My Fiance and I purchased our first puppy last Saturday from Pet City. We purchased a beautiful Basset Hound and named her Lady. Just as the other family we took the dog to the Vet to obtain the guarantee of a healthy puppy. When we went for our initial consultation, she was sent home with antibiotics because she had the flu. A day later she got very sick, we rushed her to the vet, and that's when we discovered she was infected with the parvovirus. When you sign the healthy puppy guarantee make sure you read the fine print. They will either (1) give you another puppy (2) refund your money (3) or pay 150 percent of the purchase price including taxes for treatment. At this point we are in love with our puppy and of course we want to make her better. If your puppy has the parvovirus treatment is very expensive and you will have to pay for the remaining balance. Lady is only 10 weeks and is now at Tri City Pet Hospital suffering with the parvovirus. Not only does she have the parvovirus she also has two parasites. Even though she had her first set of the parvo injections, the vets believe that she was still infected because the parasites effected the injections. DO NOT BUY PUPPIES FROM THIS PLACE, there puppies can be effected with this virus. The provisions for a healthy puppies are full of loop holes. You will end up paying for most of the treatment!!! We hope and pray that our Lady comes home soon!

I just want to say that when I walked into the Pet City it was a very nice and clean store for being such a large pet shop. When I noticed George there it was nice to see him again. I used to shop at his store in Downey and buy all my pet supplies from him. I found a MinPin at the Whittier store and had been searching for one. Now, I dont think I would have bought her from any other pet store. I do hear horrible stories, but this being George's store and how clean it appeared to be along with the old store in Downey, I had noooo hesitation to buy my doggy from him. My dog was very very clean, beautiful coat, teeth, groomed well. She is very spunky and friendly. I believe this has to have something to do with where she came from. I love my PUPPY!!!

My husband came across this pet store after leaving Disneyland, he noticed this adorable white SchanuzerWestie mix.(Wauzer) He called me at the park and said I had to see this pup before we returned to the Bay area. My first impression was "Wow" they had a lot of babies, the staff was busy cleaning kennels and just finished with their feedings. No poop on my baby either, I would of noticed since she was pure white! The staff were very helpful and were able to answer every question we had for them. George was such a sweetheart, we would highly recommend this store to all. Our Heidi has brought us nothing but happiness, thanks George!

I had bought my dog (Golden Ret.) from Pet City on Whittier Blvd back in March. It was my first time buying a dog. The owner George was very helpful. I had been shopping around and have gone thru so many stores, but I found him to be the most helpful, knowledged, and awsome to work with. The employees are very sweet and nice. I had even called him a few time a month or so later since I had a question, and he was very helpful. I would recomend this store to anyone who is wanting to buy a pet. The owner, the store, the employee, and the prices are just great.

UPDATE: We are soooooo glad to hear that the West Covina store is getting shut down because of an ordinance that was signed that states any pet store who buys their puppies from puppy mills cannot sell pets in the city of West Covina. They only way they could have stayed in business was if they could provide evidence that they did not purchase their pups from puppy mills ad they could not because THEY DO buy them from puppy mills! So I'm glad to see that they're shutting down shop!!!

My boyfriend and I purchased a cat from PetCity in Garden Grove and seven months later we had to put her to sleep because she had a terminal disease that she got from her mother while at the "pet mills" where PetCity buys all their pets!!! When we purchased the kitten PetCity informed us that we have 4 days to get her checked out by their vet. We made an appt and took her in. They said everything was ok even though she was already showing a sign of FIP (Feline Infectious Perinoitis), which was an inflammation of her eye. All they did was give her a steroid shot and said her eye will get better. They did not look deeper into the issue of her eye being inflamed if they had then they would have known that this may be an early sign of FIP. We had the cat for only 7 months and that's when her health really started deteriorating and she could no longer coverup her disease. It took over her entire body and her organs started to fail and we had no choice but to euthanize her. We are now battling it out with PetCity corporate, which are a bunch of imbeciles and just keep giving us the run-around. Don't think that if you purchase a pet from PetCity that you are helping the animal because all you're doing is making room for another animal to take it's place. These animals come from horrible places and are treated like crap. Stop buying pets from PetCity so they can go out of business because they are not ethical at all and do not care about the well-being of the animals!!! All they care about is making money and that's it! Spread the word to all of your friends and family and let them know not to shop at PetCity because they will sell you a sick animal and try to cover it up and when you finally find out that your animal is sick it will be too late. Do it for the poor little animals and STOP shopping at PetCity or any other pet store for that matter. DON'T SHOP, ADOPT!

What a sad place to live if you are a puppy. The first thing that struck me when I walked into this store is the horrible stench of dog feces. This is a large pet store and the entire place smelled like this. They have lots of puppies, many in pens that you could reach in and pet the animals. All of the dogs were stepping in their feces. It was so sad. They also have bunnies there...I felt so sorry for them that I decided to buy one, just to get it out of the store. When the worker turned the bunny over, it had some huge THING hanging off of it by its genitals...looked like a giant liver (hard to explain, but it was horrible). The employee just tried to blow it off, saying it was nothing and he would have the dr look at it. Anyway, it was really bad there. I wish they would clean it up, its sad to see animals living like that.

I love going in this store. They have all types of pets, hamsters, birds, fish as well as puppies and kittens.
They have the creepy animals too such as snakes and spiders.
Hamsters and lopped ear rabbits are in large corral type enclosures where you can reach in and pet them and watch them play. Children will love watching them while you shop for pet care grooming items and other needs.

I live in Whittier and I have a few choices of pet supply stores to go to. PetCo or Pet City. I go to Pet City because they are very friendly and they have good prices. George that manages the store is a wonderful man. He is very good to my two children every time we visit the store. he always greets us with a smile. I love the prices and their customer service!

PROS: Great owner/manager, clean, good prices.
CONS:
