This place is great. The first time I went in, the staff was great. I went in to look at the snakes because I was considering purchasing one. The snakes all looked healthy, and the ones we handled were very docile. We now buy our live feeder rats there for a decent price. All the animals we've seen the several times we've been in there have been in good health, and the more traditional pets like puppies and kittens seem to sell very quickly. I would recommend this place to anybody.

I moved out of town a few years ago and came to indy and stopped at beach grove pet shop Nov. 19. I was very unhappy to have heard it had been sold as it was a very nice family owned store at that time. The employees had told me a gentleman owns it now and he does not have much experience as it shows. There is not much inventory and it is not a very friendly atmosphere as it once was. It just goes to show you that some things should never change. As you can tell i was very disappointed and I would not recommend this pet shop.

so jr k i would love to have one of your dogs for free since you are a breeder and dont care about the money. and they dont get dogs from puppy mills i worked there in high school for 2 years and most of the dogs they get are mutts people give them and when they do get full bred dogs it is from breeders who are having trouble selling what they have left so they split the money 50/50 with the store. never once did they or have they went to a puppy mill so get the facts straight jr. the prices are much lower than the chain pet store like uncles bills and petco and the staff is much friendlier and knowledgeable. i still go there to get stuff for my dogs and i live in franklin now so its about a 30 minute drive when i could go to uncle bills in 5 minutes. great family owned store with good prices

Like others have said there was a strong smell when I walked in the store but the second time I went there the place didn't smell nor was it dirty. The atmosphere is friendly which is something you don't get at a lot of place. The staff know about the pets they home, it's not just that they're selling them, they know about them, understand them. How often do you employ someone who can tell you a lot about rodents, one all about the fish, one all about the dogs? This is a good, good store that at times has issues. Overall it is a good store. Give it a chance, their first impression shouldn't be their last.
Pros: knowledge, friendly, improvements to the store
CONS: bad first impression

Sorry but as a breeder i know that we would never send dogs to a commercial store like this so where else would they get them from... puppy mills just like all pet stores. breeders take pride in their dogs stores just take money.

Okay, not to sound like I totally know everything, but read the title. Hello, I AM a pet shop. They sell lot's of animals. If I had that many kitten's, puppies, rabbit's and all of the other pet's they have, my mom's house would totally stink so bad. There is a girl who works there and she has a saying "We are a pet shop, not a flower shop. Some animal's don't always smell so good, That's why we sell shampoo!" She is so nice. So is Cindy, Jared~so cute, Angela and the blond haired lady, I don't know her name. I know everyone there, they are awesome.

PROS: funny workers, cute animals
CONS: they don't sell flowers

You had written your review sometime ago , but I would like to make a comment. They do not buy animal's from puppy mills who breed and breed dogs for the sake of money. I know that you had purchased a cat, but please hear me out. They take in animals so they do not go to the pound, or are dumped. They have had several animal's dumped on them when I have been there and rather than calling the pound, they do the best that they can. IF they happen to get an animal that is sick, they do not sell it. More times than not they only have the animals there for a week or two. I am not saying that in that amount of time that it cannot get sick, but how do you know that it was not feeling well before? I have been a long time customer they are very nice people who seem to know a lot, and if they don't, they will tell you just that. That is a good quality. Some store's will tell you that something is necessary just to get you to purchase something. I travel 45 minutes just to get to this top notch pet shop. Give it another try.

PROS: Employees, Atmosphere, Price
CONS: Parking, location

This is my all time fav. pet shop! They got all sorts of cute puppies and cool reptiles. They're all really friendly workers and will let you hold most of the animals. Sometimes it stinks, but it is a pet shop. Other than that, they keep it clean and have all kinds of cool stuff. They even have pens outside for the puppies to go play in!

PROS: cute puppies and kittens, cool reptiles, lots of fish and other animals
CONS: im from the area but if you're not it might be hard to find

In the summer of 2005 this store was bought for the third time. All the employees stayed though which meant a lot because they are exteremly knowledgable and friendly. The store did start to go downhill with this owner and kept getting worse. Now the second owner took it back and in the week she has, changes have been made. Its a lot cleaner and theres a lot more inventory and animals. This is probably the most honest and fair pet store that I've ever been to.

PROS: Employees, Pricing
CONS: Location

I have been a customer for quite a while. They are under new ownership but that didn't seem to be a problem in the past. Plenty of staff. All of them are knowledgeable. I worked for a vet and I have checked the animals out at Pet Corral and they are in good condition. My son rescues hermit crabs from pet stores that do not care for them properly. They know what to use and take good care of them. They wash the larger pets and run them as well. I am very impressed with them. Along with PetSmart, they are the only two I care to purchase from.

PROS: Clean and friendly
CONS: Leaving, if you have to go south it is difficult to exit

I am not really sure about this place. one day I visited and all of the animal cages and the fish tanks were very dirty and the place didnt smell very good, but on another visit all of the cages were clean and the fish tanks looked better than they did before, and it smelled a little better so i am not really sure on this place.

This pet shop is not very clean. They don't seem to clean the cages very often and when you walk in you can smell it. I purchased a kitten from them last year and she had alot of health problems. The vet said it was from the enviorment she was in in the pet shop. I'm not happy about this place.

PROS: None
CONS: Unclean and stinky

I was at this Store a couple weekends ago. The store employees where very friendly and attentative. As I am a fish hobbyists,I know how hard it is to keep all the tanks clean and looking presentable. This store did a VERY good job at doing just that. Wish they had all the fish in the tanks that they had listed on the outside of the tank. I found 2 fish I wanted listed on the tanks but NONE in the tanks..

PROS: employees,
CONS: parking,location

There's no glitz & glamour like a pet store chain, but you get the feeling that these people love their animals.

They have all types of animals from fish to puppies, kittens to lizards.

They are friendly and seem to be genuinely happy to help you select your new furry friend.

Our family has had good luck with the health of the animals we have purchased here.
