George is one of the most knowledgeable people I have encountered in the pet industry from birds and fish to reptiles and mammals. He is not rude he just tells you like it is . He is not like the big box stores that want to sell you all the extra unneeded stuff. George would rather sell you items that ensure proper care and health for your pet than misc junk. George you are my hero. I will be your customer until the day you decide to close your doors. And maybe even after that . Thanks

I have been going to George for some time now. He has gone as far as letting me bring a lizard that I have so that I could get my son the lizard that he wants. The store is a little cramped, but he is trying to accomodate everyone and that is the way it should be. The smell is not bad at all, the store smells like a pet store. His prices are very very reasonable compared to these chain pet stores that cannot give you any information. He was even able to convince my son to hold a scorpion that he had and I never thought that would be possible. And he DOES NOT tell people that there is a minimum puchase for Visa purchases. He lets people know that he is charged an amount for card purchases and most times the purchase is under the fee amount. So why would he tell someone "Yeah go ahead and use the card so that I can pay for you to buy this?" He is trying to survive as a small business owner and help the public and I applaud him for it.

I have been a loyal customer of George's for almost 2 years. He is helpful,knowledgeable and has a sense of humor.He may come off a little cocky but its just his sense of humor he jokes around with customers. He takes very good care of his animals, much better than the other pet stores in the Portage area. His animals are not sick, he has a wonderful selection and if there is ever a question he does not know the answer to ( which is highly unlikely for him not to know) he will find it out for you.I bought pets from pet haven, they all died and were sickly. Their pet store is gross and smells beyond what a pet store should smell like. All pet stores will have an odor and George's pet store smells exactly like the pets that live there. The only cage that is crowded is the FEEDER mouse cage. I will continue being a customer of Pirate's Cove for as long as they are in business which I hope will be for a very long time.

We recently moved to Indiana and had the opportunity to visit Pirate's Cove. I have found that George is always very friendly and informative. He has gone above and beyond to assit my family with any of our pet needs. We purchased to Red painted turtles from his store & they are doing wonderful!! THANKS GEORGE

George takes in all kinds of animals and helps rehabilitate them. He's more than willing to help out with any questions you have and goes the extra mile to make sure you have what you need or at least looking for. If he doesn't have it, he'll get it for you. He also has numerous aquariums in the store and various animals. This would probably have something to do with the fact that he runs/operates at PET STORE! So, when people complain about the smell, well... there's lots of "pets" in there, what does one expect? Two of the birds in the store have been a rescue and he's taking great care of them and try to repair the neglect of someone else's actions. Before criticizing George, ask yourself... what have you done to help save/rescue pets lately? I give them two thumbs up.

horrible!!! He is rude to the customers, if you ask him a question he belittles you. And gives you an answer like your the idoit for not knowing. And don't trust him when he tells you that the big bird doesn't bit, he bit my nephew. He made it sound like my nephew did something to him when all he did was walk past the bird! If you want to go to a pet shop go to pet haven on route 6. they answer all your questions and are NICE to you. They helped me out alot when getting a lizard for my kids, told me which one i should get and what i need for it...he wanted me to get them something else. And i know it was because he wanted to make money, and i don't know if he does now, but at the time he didn't carry lizards.

Don't let him tell you there is a minimum purchase to use VISA in doing so he is in violation of the VISA rules and you can issue a formal complaint. I use to like shopping here, lately the service has been rude. I will drive extra miles to be treated fairly.

THIS is the place to go for ALL your pet care needs!
George is informative and experienced, not to mention extremely helpful as well! :)
I came across this establishment when dealing with a difficult to feed ball python (sadly purchased elsewhere) and was given the best advice to help my situation, which led to one succesful feeding after another (all food from Pirates Cove of course)George is a 'tell it like it is' kinda guy and I wouldn't have it any other way! Save yourself from the inexperience elsewhere...GO TO PIRATES COVE!
Thanks to them, I know have healthy happy pets and answers to ANY question regarding their care :)

I went in there to look at the selection of fish they had. The SMELL was unbearable. The store was unkept and cluttered. The small animals were stuffed in cages with many offspring. There water bowls were filled with feces. There was a rabbit in a cage so small he couldn't even hop around. Did I mention the smell? The SMELL was unbearable. I wasn't even able to finish looking at the fish. I was so sick to my stomach. My clothes smelled foul till I was able to change. This place should be shut down. Poor Animals!!!!

If you are looking for a pet shop that is knowledgeable, friendly, and a great place to get pet supplies, this is it! I have a Red Tail Boa, that my husband bought for me from here, and he is the best snake i have EVER owned and i owe it all to the owner! If it weren't for him, i wouldn't have the knowledge i have now of different kinds of pets. This pet shop is truly the best!
