when you ask petland where the puppies come from they tell you they come from usda licensed breeders. if pushed further, they will say they come from a broker called the hunte corporation. what they don't tell you is that hunte happily buys from unlicensed breeders, that usda licensing means that these puppies are governed by the same minimal standards for the animals we eat, and that the hunte corporation and their suppliers repeatedly fail these minimum standards themselves and are constantly in violation. they don't tell you that hunte has a grade of F with the better business bureau. they don't tell you that the only reason the class action suits against petland and hunte were dismissed is because puppy mills are perfectly legal in the united states, and it should be obvious that this is the only way that both hunte and petland could acquire 80,000 puppies a year. 3 retiring hunte drivers told me personally that the dogs come from puppy mills before they quit. yes, i used to work there, and this is exactly why i no longer work there. you have no idea how many puppies get sick within a week or are later diagnosed with congenital defects. 50% of the puppy "inventory" will get sick within a week of arrival or later be diagnosed with a defect like hip dysplasia. if you work for petland, either wake up, or grow a spine and a conscience. obviously the people reading this have heard of google. how is it none of you have? one violation by hunte was a mass grave of puppy carcasses that violated animal disposal law. it has been estimated that hunte disposes of 220 lbs of puppy a month, which would be about 50 puppies. it is speculated that some of these are euthanized for being "unsellable," either because they failed to meet breed standards, or because they were too old (10 weeks). examples of both were found in the grave, however, due to decomposition, cause of death was unknown. if you work for either of these corporations, or by patronage you support them, you are supporting the largest organized act of animal cruelty in the united states. this is not an exaggeration.

I only shop at Petland for food that I can't get elsewhere in this area. They do a horrible job with the puppies, cramped cages, collars too tight, no stimulation. The staff is all kids with little knowledge. They buy from puppy mills despite saying they don't - NO reputable breeder would let their puppies go to such conditions

The first time I shopped at petland was when I bought a reptile for my son from Pet supplies plus. The staff there were eager to sell me the lizard but had little to no knowledge about what kind of care he needed. I went to Petland for crickets one day and was helped by a nice gentleman who worked in the fish department. He guided me through all the care the lizard needed and showed me the appropriate products for the lizard. He even went to the back and printed me a care sheet! I have shopped there ever since. The staff are fantastic and very knowledgeable.

My first problem with PetLand is that they keep their animals in conditions that stress them out and lead to sick animals. Their dogs are kept in cramped wire bottom cages, the small animals and birds are open to the public to be handled by any passerby whether they like it or not, and their fish are mostly diseased the times I've been there. I am disturbed by some of their fish keeping methods, which lead to the diseases in the fishstock there.
They have an okay selection of foods, for dogs, cats birds and small pets, they also carry accessories, but not the largest selection in athens. The staff must usually be hunted down for help and were not knowledgeable when I did find them.
