If you care about animals and are socially-responsible you will not support Alsip Nursery. They buy their dogs from "breeders and other places" and by supporting their store you are perpetuating this practice. Certainly do not buy an animal from there which is perpetuating this practice first-hand. On average 10,000 homeless dogs and cats are euthanised in our country on a daily basis. If you care about animals you will get your pet at a shelter, at a place like Petco or Petsmart (which often have shelter animals for sale) or a breed-specific rescue organization.

Update: I called Alsip Nursery and asked to speak to the manager of the pet department. She got on the phone and said her name is Lynn. I asked her to please tell me specific names of the breeders or other places from where they buy their pets. She said the cats are brought in by people. She said the dogs are from breeders that are Dept. Of Ag. certified and from "other places". I asked for specific names of places. She would not tell me. Then she said that she gets the dogs via a broker. The only specific thing she did say to me was that she can report me to the police. For asking where they buy their animals?

THEY BUY FROM PUPPY MILLS AND CHARGE YOU 7-10X WHAT THEY PAY FOR THE PUPPY! About 2 years ago my husband brought home a golden retriever puppy for our family that he purchased at the Alsip Nursery for $900. She had some health problems caused by living in unsanitary conditions (the vet said) that medicine cleared up in a couple weeks. But not a good sign I thought. Because I had concerns about where she came from, I went in to the pet department and asked who/where the breeders were. They reluctantly gave me the "breeder's" name. Went home and did some research on the computer. I came across an organization that will research your puppy and attempt to give you specific details on where your puppy came from. (http://www.petshoppuppies.org) Within a week I heard back from them that our dog came from Iowa and at the breeder's last state mandated inspection 9 months prior, they had 96 dogs on the premises. They had some other violations in their history as well. That is a puppy mill. Since then I have heard many negative stories about dogs purchased at Alsip Nursery. People believe that when they buy a puppy at Alsip Nursery, they are getting a higher quality puppy then they would at some other puppy store. I know I did. Alsip Nursery is taking advantage of their reputation for selling high quality products when they sell their loyal trusting customers a low quality puppy mill puppy. Time to clean up your act....and your high profit pet department! I think it is time our community sends them a message about what our values and beliefs concerning animals are. You are taking a risk if you buy a puppy from Alsip Nursery. Go to an animal shelter and take a risk there!

Puppies come from "reputable breeders." AKA puppy mills. Went there today and saw a border collie that was clearly frustrated. It was so hard NOT to buy out of pity, but that's just feeding the machinery that keeps puppy mills going. Go to your local animal shelter and adopt.

Alsip Nursery is a great place to shop when you need a special gift for someone...yes they are a little high in price which makes it a store you only shop every once in a while. The pet department is my favorite and the puppies are always clean and presentable. I never had an expirience with mistreatment there. Everyone seems very knowledgeable and has no problem helping you with whatever questions you may have. The puppies come from USDA registered breeders so its not like they are comming from a puppy mill run from a basement which is good to know!! I encourage anyone to just stop in and check them out!

Great selection of greenery and pet supplies. Somewhat pricey. Pets allowed in store and have a groomer on site. Unclear as to where their pets come from and buying pets from there are expensive.

I love Alsip Home & Nursery!! Our family gets together at our moms who lives in Cedar Lake, IN some of us drive over an hour. This store has the most unique items, you have to go to the store for your favorite season or holiday. They have the most unique items for holidays and displays are wounderful. Christmas is a must, beautiful ornaments and great ideas. Flowers (spring and fall)are beautiful and they have plants I have never seen before. I find they have several price ranges and they have something for everyone. Everytime I go to this store (at least 3 times a year for the last 8 years) I find something that I MUST have!

It's way to pricey for everyday use. It's a garden center, it's a gift shop, it's a home accessory store, and it's a pet shop! It is too much. As for the garden center - good offerings on pretty standard stuff. Very pricey and they don't guarantee anything. You know if you buy at K-Mart & the plant dies they give you a replacement or your money back, not here! Buyer beware. No guarantee of any kind. I found out the hard way. I purchased a burning bush that didn't live three weeks. I tried to return/replace it to no avail. To top it all off the poor little puppies smell bad.
