Petland

Just curious if what I saw is a similar thing in all Petland stores. I took my mother shopping the other day and noticed that the town we went to had opened up a new Petland store. Of course being a betta adict I went in to see what they had. I was very disapointed. They keep them in cups about half the size of what petsmart does and they are way overpriced. A Veiltale was 7 dollars there and most everywhere else sells them for 3. The rest of the betta's were priced between 7 and 15 dollars. Also some of the tanks were way overpriced. The only thing they had priced well was the food. I don't think I will be a regular customer there.

I wonder why the one I went to was so darn expensive. Maybe because it just opened. I bet they will drop the betta prices when nobody buys.

xShainax*I am not a huge fan of Petland right now. Those prices were outrageous and the sale cups got even smaller.

People who bought dogs there have wrote so much about how bad they were and that they died a few days after they got it

I'd never buy a pup from a pet store, unless of course it is like PETco an petsmart, they house shelter animals :3

Well good thing I don't have a pet land. I wouldn't buy anything from a pet store making profit off of poorly over bred puppy mill pups, even if I'm not buying a dog.

Any dog I own is a rescue. Either from bad owners or from dog pounds. I don't support breeders of any type when there is so many dogs who need a home.

Those are some terrible comments. I am very happy I didn't see any puppys for sale at this one.

I agree. Although I do give reputable breeders some slack, if they produce good quality dogs for shows and to better the breed, but most people have no clue what they're doing when it comes to breeding and it sickens me.

I'm kinda glad, I'm using my iPod and it wouldn't let me open that link xP
