hi, i am here to give my opinion. honestly i think this shop should be bought out and someone that knows how to actually care for animals and know your limits. for christs sake its not huge, they have multiple dogs and cats in kennels that arent big enough. their fish all are sick and dying constantly. their reptiles hide ALL the time (usually a sign of depression). and their rabbits and chinchillas and other rodents are very skittish. i feel sad for the animals here. i really do! someone anyone know how we can get this place shut down? they are also a puppy mill store. when their animals dont get adopted after so long they send them to the puppy mill to be slaughtered... sad :(

I made the mistake of purchasing from this place once; I paid a ridiculous amount for a full-grown adult maliensis uromastyx (or the mali uromastyx). It had parasites, was emaciated, had a rot nose, and was low on calcium due to it's living conditions. They're supposed to be in a 30 gallon tank minimum and this one was housed (for God knows how long) in a tank that was smaller than 5 gallons. It barely fit the entire reptile and any knowledgeable reptile owner could tell you that mali uromastyx are not supposed to have water in it's cages due to the high humidity, and this one was housed in a small tank with a little water bown right next to it. They're desert animals that get water from the plants they eat. Everything was overpriced here and they were very unknowledgeable about the majority of the animals kept. It was disgusting. Never returning, unless it's to spit in the owner's face.

Also, all of the puppies are known to be from puppy mills. They're crammed in the smallest cages possible for hours on end with other puppies. It's disgusting.

Free parking??? So what!? This is MN. Unless you're downtown, there's free parking EVERYWHERE.
This store is a joke. Why are they even selling dogs and cats? If they were reputable, they would team up with the humane society like so many other businesses and feature adoptable animals - and the HS supervises all of it.
Looked "all over" for a papillon? They are NOT hard to find - even in the shelters.
Let you take the animals out and hold them? What store doesn't???
The treatment of the fish is deplorable. Fish are so delicate that you've got a 50% chance of them dying anyway just because transport is stressful enough on them. Removing them from the tank in such a brutal way? Make that a 90% chance.
Oh and please, don't flush your fish. Ever. It can contaminate the local ecosystem.
Please don't support pet stores that sell dogs - it's almost guaranteed they come from puppy mills. Go to a shelter or a REPUTABLE breeder.

I was reading the reviews and thought I would share mine. This store is clean, employees are nice and helpful. They let you take the animals out and hold them and, free parking. My son and I stopped by Har Mar Pet shop looking for a papillon puppy. There she was, my little sweet cute gremlin! Of course, we purchased her. The price was right as well. I had searched every petstore for a papillon but no luck. My first and best dog ever! This is what other dog owners tell me, how good my dog is! Thank you! We named her Madelyn! She's 4.5 lbs, black and white with fluffy beautiful butterfly ears. We purchased her 5 yrs ago from this pet store. I highly recommend this pet store. The most pleased part is that she's a small dog and can take here everywhere with me! Note: This pet store wasn't very close to us but worth the drive- 45 minutes.

I visit this store pretty regularly. I like to visit with the puppies, and it's nice that they let you take them out. The pups are kept in nice clean cages and they get to run around. You can tell the pets well-being comes before the people, which I personally appreciate, not to say they don't care. They also have a very nice aquarium selection with many neat saltwater aquariums to look through. Some of the staff there are VERY knowledgable, while others not so much, but they've always been very friendly and helpful for me. They do get extremely busy there sometimes though, like almost shoulder to shoulder, so sometimes there's some waiting to be helped. I definitely enjoy visiting here.

Despite being a small pet store, they tend to have many of the items that make aquarium keeping easier. Many of these things are completely unavailable at places like Petsmart or Petco. That said, the staff is unbelievably rude and treat their customers like an inconvenience. So, if you are looking for something pretty common to fish keeping that you just can't find anywhere else, there is a fair chance that they will have it. Just go with a thick skin and be prepared to wait until a staff member is good and ready to help you.

Yesterday I went there to buy a fish for my friend as a birthday gift. The employees were ridiculous. They were clipping parakeet's wings right on the counter, the birds got loose in the store, and when I asked for assistance with the fish the girl who helped me...omg...she didn't wash her hands, and she stuck the plastic bag down in the water with her hands. she accidentally caught two fish instead of one so she reached right in the bag and grabbed one fish out with her bear hands. Now, if my fish had lived, I wouldn't be complaining, but I woke today to find him belly up. there's five bucks down the toilet, literally. i wouldn't recommend going here - the place stinks, the fish have ick, and it just made me feel awful for the animals. i'm all about trying to shop local and avoid big businesses, but in this case i wish i would have just gone to petco =(

Even though they are a small shop, they sell dogs, birds, fish, cats, hamsters rabbits, and reptiles. THe dogs are well kept and there are many adorable mix breeds. The owners are helpful and love animals. Supplies are there but they are'nt as extensive as Petco or other major retailers. So far, I've been able to find all I want though. Check this place out for your pet needs.
