I visited Pet Connection yesterday and was very impressed. The sales staff and owner were all well informed and very helpful! The prices were in the ballpark. The tanks were clean, the birds were clean, the puppies were clean. No smell whatsoever which amazes me because all petstores have some odor with multiple animals...it's a given. They have a huge inventory. I recently moved to the area and have been looking for a new "home" petstore and I have found it with these guys! They know what they are doing unlike the chains who often employ uninformed or non-caring people.

Pet Connection is a wonderful pet store for all your needs - they sell puppies, kittens, reptiles, fish, tarantulas, birds, rodents (rats, mice, gerbils, hamsters, rabbits, guinea pigs, ferrets, chinchillas), and all the supplies you would ever need to accomodate your pet. Most likely the widest variety of any pet store you'll find in Ohio, along with great service. :)

In response to the comments;
**The incident with the seahorse has already been explained - go to local.yahoo.com and enter "pet connection, alliance, OH" to read about that.
**About the puupies being smelly and sickly - NEVER. Puppies are like human babies - they eat, sleep, cry, and go to the bathroom constantly. When we're having a busy day with a lot of customers, and puppies are going to the bathroom almost non-stop, the puppy room may smell and there may be a lot of excrement, and an employee may not be able to stop helping customers to clean the cage at that exact moment. Also, the puppy room holds in the smell because it must be closed and locked at all times because puppies have been stolen in the past - so when that door opens, stifled smell is what hits you in the face. Our puppies are up to date on all thier shots and wormings, and they are fed a great diet of top-of-the-line dog food (Royal Canin). They are the healthiest pups you'll find anywhere. And when they get dirty or stinky they get a bath as soon as possible.
**About the smell of the store - what do you expect? Animals are smelly, and smell-good aerosols and typical odor-elimators cannot be used around particular species of animals, so we do what we can with cleaners that are all-animal safe. Also, we have more animals than most any other pet store around, so the large amount adds to the animal smell.
**In reference to being hassled by young cashiers in the back of the store, they only do that because people steal. And when there isn't a person, camera, or security system to stop them, someone can steal something very easily.

I like the pet connection I bought my puppy from them and she is healthy and happy but I will say that they do need to clean up alittle better other than that I have not had a bad experience with them.

I purchased 2 seahorses on Sunday afternoon and by the time we got home, about an hour later, 1 was dead. I called the owner to resolve the situation and he informed me that there is no guarantee on my purchase. His way to solve the problem was to tell me I could have a 20% discount on my next purchase of a seahorse from him. Since they cost $70 each this isn't exactly a good response. Considering the first one I bought only lived for an hour I wouldn't risk my money on another. I am very familiar with the care of seahorses and there is absolutely no reason for this to happen. I have recommended this place to friends of mine in the past because of the variety of animals they offer. I will no longer be promoting any purchases from this poorly run and badly managed business. Anyone seeking quality fish should look elsewhere.

We needed a Chestnut Fronted Zebra finch - female - to replace a mate for a bird we have. We called and the staff checked immediately and HAD ONE. They put a hold on it for us and we picked it up within the hour. The birdroom was clean and the bird we bought was in good health.

I went to Pet Connection last Jan. when I was looking for a puppy. The place seemed alright until they unlocked the door to the puppy room. Pet stores can be stinky, but this was the worst I've ever been to. The cages were filled with feces and urine. The puppies were all filthy and they looked sickly. I hope they've either gotten their stuff together or been shut down!

that's the only reason I'd ever recommend going here. The place smells terrible, like a normal pet store about about twice as bad. Also, when my and my friends went there as teenagers, the young cashiers would bother us until we left since we must have been kids looking for trouble. While they do have a lot of animals and the nasty pet store floor issue has been avoided, the smell is one good reason to completely avoid this place.

Not a good experience. The place smells pretty bad.
The puppies are ALL purebred and all different kinds of purebreds, which leaves anyone to believe that they are from backyard breeders or puppy mills. When you ask about where the pups come from, the teenagers who run the store state they are brought in from people who don't want them. That is strange! All owners of PUREBRED puppies do not want their puppy?

You also cannot hold a puppy or kitten without being asked if you are going to buy one or are thinking of about buying one! Please think twice about buying animals from this place.
