Flies, young and old, everywhere. This is the most disgusting, inhumane place I have ever been in my entire life. The pungent smell of fecal matter, urine, and mold overwhelmed me and my family when we entered the store one morning to purchase a fish. Every single animal cage was unkept- bottom of snake cages covered in old vomit pellets, rat cages dotted with more fecal matter than bedding, lizard tanks with windows smeared with fecal matter, dead and decaying frogs rotting in old water, no one is caring for these animals!!! Each tank I looked into had no fresh water. None. What was in the bowls was more fecal matter and rotting items. I am astounded that this place is still in business. The worst and most heart wrenching thing I witnessed was the rat and small animal containers (clear plastic tubs, really, with lids) that lined the wall behind the register. One container that held rats contained one that was contorted in an odd position and obviously dead for some time because it was rotting with flies! The other rats in this same container were walking over it to get to the water supply. I wanted to cry. THis place needs to be shut down and soon.

We were not really able to see many of the fish in their tanks because the many of the tank windows were covered with thick layers of algae. We saw dead and dried fish and other aquatic life on the floor and in between teh tanks. There are no covers to the tanks which allow for animals to jump out.

One of the most disturbing tanks was I saw carried a number of fish. However, wrapped around the bottom part of the filter that hangs in the tank and sucks water up from the tank were easily 15 or more dead, decaying fish. They looked like they were growing fur or something- obviously they had been there for a long time.

We went to visit the gigantic friendly turtle who roams the pet store (and who was a treat to see when I was little), resting in his spot that was covered with urine and feces. His toes and feet were caked with layers of fecal matter and underneath his resting spot were places where he urinated and it had dried over and over. It was as if no one cared to clean this beautiful creature or his resting spot in a very long time.

Please help me shut this place down and save these animals from any further abuse.

This is a family-owned business of over 50 years. Extremely knowledgeable personnel. They have tropical, brackish and pond fish along with tanks and all the supplies you need to set up an aquarium. They breed a lot of their birds themselves and have a huge variety from parakeets to the the most exotic parrots and macaws. They also trim and board your feathered friends for you. Prices are comparable to any other fish and bird haven, but you are guaranteed to take home a healthy new friend. Highly recommend.
