If you read google reviews for this place, youll see dozens of people say they have bought an animal from Friendly Pets that was seriously sick. Sometimes things as serious as Parvo, and seriously bacterial infections that can spread to your other pets upon taking them home. Had to come in and check it out for myself, and watched for two hours as dogs laid two inches above their own feces and urine, practically breathing it in while employees lollygagged around ignoring it. Very occasionally when they did clean one out, I noticed they only cleaned the bottom tray out, leaving dried up grimed in feces and urine stuck to the metal bars which the dogs are laying on. Several dogs were breathing very oddly- as if they were either sedated or sick. Which as I said read the reviews they likely are sick- especially with the amount of waste just everywhere in their cages. The animals are kept caged and overcrowded in their own waste and illness in this kind of an atmosphere is inescapable. Mentioned how dirty the cages were to an employee and was told yah we should clean them better. They are will blatantly LIE and claim an animals medical records are clear when thats not the case. Dont shop here unless you want a sick animal.

Please do NOT purchase a puppy here and support the abusive puppy mill industry. NO MATTER WHAT THEY TELL YOU, EVERY puppy in there comes from a puppy mill. They have posted a sign recently stating that their puppies come from ''USDA licensed and inspected breeders''....a clever ploy, but if you bother finding out what that actually means, it means puppy mill. Regular small scale breeders don't get licensed or inspected because the USDA only does that for large scale commercial breeding operations- i.e., puppy mills. Respectable breeders would NEVER sell their puppies to a pet store to be sold to just anyone. PLEASE do not support this horrible and inhumane industry by NOT purchasing a puppy mill puppy from Friendly Pets. If you don't want to adopt a rescue, then at least find a reputable breeder.
Puppy mill puppies have health issues that may not be evident for some time and frequent behavioral/training issues because of their abusive and neglectful upbringing.

We come here sometimes just to get out of the house. Our son loves to see all the animals, and the staff is super friendly and always asks us if we want to get one of the puppies out to play with. The have a huge selection of dogs, and fish.. i just wish they had more kitties.

This store offers a huge variety of pet care needs. They have a huge verietyof fish. They are a little bit pricey than the larger pet stores. The space is also a little tight but they have everything.

This store has a lot to offer. From a variety of live pets to the supplies needed to care for them. This store is pricier than the large chains, but customer service and product quality is better.

I like the wide variety of stuff this store offers. I think their space is a little cramped for what they want to do with it, but I appreciate it just the same. They have a large LARGE selection of fish in the back from golfish to sting rays. I always go here first for my pet needs!

They have a lot of nice tanks...some VERY big. They are also very nice to kids. The fish seemed pretty healthy, too. I was impressed that the employee I talked to actually seemed to be knowledgeable about fish, too.
