Petland – The Puppy Finder

April 30, 2018

Petland is the industry leader in the area of animal care.

We know that finding a perfect puppy to compliment your home can be an arduous task at times, but it can also be a pleasant one. At Petland, we pride ourselves on being the premiere puppy finder for many reasons.

We Say NO to Puppy Mills

It’s not uncommon for customers to come into our store and ask, “Where do your puppies come from,” or “Do you get your puppies from puppy mills?” These are questions that you should be asking of a puppy finder and we applaud you. We are proud to say that our puppies come directly from commercial breeders and they DO NOT come from any  “puppy mills.” We take frequent trips to visit our breeders and work very hard to make sure we are getting the best puppies from the best breeders. As a responsible puppy finder, we ensure that our breeders meet the following qualifications:

  1. USDA licensed breeders and distributors with no direct violations on their latest inspection report. As of January 1, 2015, our policy extends to no direct violations in the previous 24 months. Inspection reports for federally licensed breeders are available free of charge on the USDA website.
  2. Hobby breeders as defined by the Animal Welfare Act. These are breeders who raise their dogs in a humane manner.
  3. Local adoption pets that are vet-checked. Additionally, another puppy finder source comes from local animal shelters or from members of the local community as part of Petland’s Adopt-A-Pet program. Hundreds of thousands of shelter and community animals have been placed with caring families.

We provide ongoing staff training programs, in-store animal husbandry systems and community service programs aimed at placing homeless pets and curbing pet overpopulation in the community. The health and well-being of our pets comes first for all of us at Petland. At the corporate level, Petland is actively involved with other pet industry leaders and helps create and enforce standards for everyone in the pet care business. We also work to make sure our pets are cared for by licensed pet professionals who pay careful attention to their welfare and veterinary needs. The number one reason an individual becomes a Petland store owner is his or her love of pets, and that’s a fact we continue to be proud of each and every day.
