I have shopped at pet connection for may years now and have gotten to know the owners personally,,,i have had many animals and i do animal rescue work so i try to save a dollar if and when i can.i used to live in citrus heights and now am in south.sac.27 miles.and i quite often will drive out to pet connection primarily cause i know they have what i am looking for.You must remember that this is a very old store and not well ventilated as many new one and is a family owned store not a franchise.I know for a fact that the dog and cat cages are clean and sometimes just at that right moment it might have a dirty cage but that is just momentary..Of all the years there i have never been told a falsehood and as matter of fact they were the only ones to help me when i was unable to adopt out an animal and couldn't stand the thought of the pound...they are good knowledgeable people and i only hope are up and running once again.

Obviously reviewers that give this place a good rating are either paid off or totally oblivious. This place should be shut down. Their entire store is filthy inside the cages/tanks and out. Animals are forced to live in their own waste. For those who think this place is satisfactory, here's a tip... When you're overwhelmed by the smell of urine as you walk in the front door, that's your first clue to turn around and walk out.

I have been to pet connection on many occasions. I know first hand that they do not get their pets from breeders or whatever they are claming because a Cat we had, had kittens and upon mentioning it to the owner he asked us to donate the kittens to the store. Well I thought it was odd but couldn??t really keep so many kittens around the house so I figured it should be ok; but as soon as we brought them in they were put into the display cage with no visit to the Vet to make sure they were healthy enough to be around the other kittens and he didn??t give them any food or water until I raised hell. ALSO upon one visit with my sister one of the hamsters was having babies in the middle of a crowded cage and the other hamsters were eating the babies it was very upsetting to witness I knew other hamsters would do that, however notice should have been taken and the females should have been separated so my younger sister and all other children in the store didn??t have to see that. My sisters and my mom had purchased animals from there over the years also, all of which had health problems. If you walk into the store it is dark and smells bad, the puppies are in bad conditions they always are behind glass, they are not taken out and sleep in their own feces. I really hope they wake up and provide a better environment for those poor animals or someone does something about it. It is heartbreaking to see them that way.

you guys who say that pet connection is awful. then you guys need to open your eyes.
the staff is awsome and knowledgeable and very help full.
i got my albino corn snake from there and he is very healthy and i have had no problems with him. i also get my pet food from there for my snake an it is very cheap. way cheaper than pet co. the rats are also very healthy.
yeah there might be some flaws but no pet store is perfect!!
look at pet co. there rat cages are dirty.
so i recommend pet co. ;)

They DO NOT get their dogs from a dog broker or from any real breeder. They're all PUPPY MILL PUPPIES!!! How do I know? My pekingese came from there... a week after we got him he lost his eye! Not to mention he had a hernia (which they lied to us about) and an undescended testicle... both of which are hereditary! How they keep getting buisness amazes me. Now that my peke is going to loose his second eye (again inherited from his puppy mill parents). I'm making it my personal mission to make sure all the animals they carry will be properly cared for instead of left without water and food, also to make sure they don't purchase anymore puppy mill puppies. I don't want anyone to go through the heartbreak my family has gone through.

My kids and I went into the store on Auburn and can not believe that they are even allowed to stay open.

I became interested in the Goffin Cockatoo they had 1 yr old for ($1,000) When The birdshop just down the street has 3 month old for $895. So first off I thought the prices were high. But ....this lil guy captured my heart so I pondered for a few days. My daughter noticed the kittens had flees all over them and the puppies did not look cool behind the plexiglass what so ever..not to mention they were sleeping in their own feces. That was just our 1st visit.

We went back about 3 days later and wanted to take another look at the Goffin Cockatoo and maybe hold it this time. 1st thing I noticed (there are 4 parrots in that area) 1 had dirty water and looked days old. The cockatoo had a thin layer of olddddddd dirty water with feces in it and the black headed caquie (sp) had zero water (bone dry bowl) I didnt look at the other birds bowl.

I did try an pet the kittens through the cage they were all in and they felt very boney I could feel their ribs and spine very easily and they also had no water. I had to point these empty water bowls out to the workers. All the while it looked like there was a lady dropping off more kittens and she certainly didnt look like no broker (as someone has said they got their animals from)

Flies were landing all over us...there was not a place that you could walk with out seeing dozens of flies.

The puppies were again laying in feces, even more than the 1st visit.
1 terrier puppy has all kinds of goup in its eyes...I didnt look at the others. There was a small dog laying on its back in one container with 2 or 3 other dogs and that one looked bloated (could have been just fat but who knows). I plan to report these conditions to animal control on the next business day. So if they dont want any trouble than they better have their Sh*t cleaned up..literally. I do have a witness.

I have been there before (years ago) and it wass actually a very nice place to go...I dont know what has happened but that is a hell hole for these animals and they need to be shut down!!! These poor animals need to be taken out of there ASAP

A couple weeks ago I purchased a female ratty from this place. I come to find out a couple days ago that she is pregnant! I should have figured. There was a female hamster in the male hamster cage who was being harrassed by all the male hamsters. I told the lady who I believe is one of the owners, she looked, kind of shrugged her shoulders, and left to help someone else. She didn't even bother to remove the female hamster. And now my poor ratty is pregnant, who is still just a baby herself! This place is terrible and disgusting. They have a crappy selection in animal supplies, none of their animals are well cared for. Hell, when I went to get a bulb for my bearded dragon, the guy who I believe is the other owner didn't even know what a Repti Glo 10.0 bulb was. He said he didn't believe they make it. I seriously can't get over this store. Never shop here!

Pros: Absolutely nothing!

Cons: Terrible service, mistreatment of animals, bad selection of supplies

1st off, let me say that you must take each of these reviews with a grain of salt- i see lots of people saying terrible things- and i would like to stick up for pet connection. -about the puppies: pet connection does not go to puppy mills to buy them- they go through a breeder broker that guarantees the dogs come from cerified breeders- and are pet quality,as opposed to show. they are givin the best of care from the moment they arrive.they are kept behind plexiglass to keep them from exposure to diseases like parvo- which is generally fatal.and VERY EXPENSIVE! pet connections staff are incredibly knowledgable-and, to comment on the person who said thier was an unhealthy iquana because of his color?-you dont know what your talking about. iquanas come in many colors depending on their region -some are blueish,brght green,orange,tan,etc.
every one of those creatures is fed well and properly-from the fish, lizards-and even the feeder creatures. also- anytime someone comes in with a problem- the staff will always try to help- make recommendations-dont believe me?just go in and ask!
how do i know? i used to work there- as well as a veternary office. anyways- they have amazing selection and shopping there is awesome!

All of the puppies at Pet Connection are purchased from puppy mills. At the store they are all on cough medication because they have bordatella - kennel cough. We purchased our mini dachshund from them and took her to their "recommended" vet. He gave her a lot of antibiotics, but her cough did not go away. They continued to give me more and more, but it never helped. In the end she ended up contracting pneumonia from it and I spent over $4000 at 4 different vets, including UCDavis, to get her over her illness. She spent the 1st four months we had her at vet offices. We brought all of this and the story to Pet Connection and they told us it was our fault because we went to a different vet than the one they recommended. We went to a different vet because theirs could not help our puppy. We later researched her breeder and the breeders of their other puppies and found it was a puppy mill in Virginia. Please do not buy their puppies and support the evil puppy mills.

Well it has its good points and its bad. Good prices and most of the pets are well taken care of. Some though I don't think the staff knows how to take care of. The dogs are kept behind glass, but there is a cooling and vent system in place. Though the poor green iguana is in a very small space and is GREY. Yes, iguanas do loose some of there color w/ age but not all of it. He is way to young (7years) to be all grey. And it is pretty hot in the store so the animals who need cooler air must be unhappy. Though it is much better than some stores (ie Kash's Kritters) in sac. You have to take the good with the bad.

Once you get inside, you see that the store goes beyond than what the front looks like. This is where I bought my bird and the cage for my bird. They are your typical pet store: animals, pet food, fish, ect. The prices aren't high and the staff is friendly.

PROS: big store, good selection, friendly staff
CONS: parking

This is a fun pet store. The store is huge and there is plenty of parking. They have a wide variety of different pets. I have seen birds, fishes, rabbits, snakes and more. They also have pet supplies such as pet food. The staffs are very knowledgeable about the different pets and appear ready to help at any time.

When our hamster had babies they bought the babies from us.
