Petland Cares

Petland Kennesaw is a retail pet industry leader in animal care. For over 19 years, Petland Kennesaw has advanced by developing state-of-the-art standards for its retail pet store. We are for the continuation of higher standards within our industry and do not condone “puppy mills” in any way, shape, or form. As a matter of fact, Petland Kennesaw supports higher standards in animal care and we want to shut down puppy mills.

Where does Petland Kennesaw get their puppies?

Contrary to what the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS), other animal rights extremists, and some activists portray, Petland Kennesaw does not source their puppies from ‘puppy mills’. Additionally, our store is a State-of-the-Art facility priding itself in animal care under the direction of our Consulting Veterinarian.

In the first video below, meet Petland Kennesaw’s quality breeders, see their top notch facilities, and spacious play areas that all Petland puppies get to enjoy!

We’d like to introduce ourselves, show you our store and take you to see one of our breeders. Please click on the video below.

Some people want to ban pet stores because they believe these myths:

  • Pet stores are responsible for pet overpopulation
  • For every puppy sold, a shelter dog dies
  • Pet stores buy from puppy mills
  • Pet stores sell sick dogs
  • There are plenty of purebreds in shelters
  • Pet bans keep puppy mill dogs out of communities

These are simply myths. The facts speak for themselves. Please learn more and read “Myths vs. Facts” from our Petland Cares site.

Pet shelters are experiencing puppy shortages

Why is this happening? According to the New York Times, the spay/neuter initiative has been effective resulting in more than 85% of dogs being spayed or neutered. This means there are far less accidental litters that used to fill local shelters. 

While people still believe there is a massive pet overpopulation problem, according to the NAIA, there are only 15 states that are currently experiencing any pet overpopulation. 35 states are not. What does this mean? 

It means dogs are being transported from states with overpopulation problems. Dogs are being imported from Korea, Puerto Rico and other countries. And, unfortunately, it has led to some rescues buying puppies from breeders. 

Please read the following articles on this matter below:

Many “rescues” are buying puppies from the same breeders they despise. They then “adopt” these puppies to customers for big profits.

Rescue groups, historically speaking, are run by committed, caring people, clubs, or experts who want these abandoned or unwanted pets to have a home. However, with effective spay/neuter initiatives and increased demand for puppies, there has been an emergence of rescues who are buying puppies from breeders or importing them from countries without standardized vaccination protocols. It has, unfortunately, become a big business. This is also known as retail rescue. Since the dogs sold are from rescues, there are no warranties, health records, sourcing of where the dogs came from or regulations protecting the customers like one gets from a regulated pet store.

Over 1 million dogs a year are being imported from unregulated foreign countries/sources.

Because of the influx of dogs coming from other countries, the United States has seen reemergences of canine viruses, including rabies. These dogs are also being sold as “rescues” with no health records, warranties, or sourcing of where the dog came from.

The Federal Government (USDA) has released a report in Summer 2019 stating that over 1 million dogs were imported from foreign countries last year alone.

Please read the following articles on problems with importing dogs from unregulated sources:

Local and State legislators are voting to keep regulated pet stores in business while raising animal care and welfare standards to help get rid of the “bad actors” and puppy mills.

“Shutting down the good guys will do nothing to stop the bad actors. Rather, it will open the doors for more puppy sales from unregulated sources, where abuse and inhumane conditions are more likely. This bill ensures that puppies being sold in pet shops are coming from responsible breeders, and includes strict penalties for store owners who do not comply.” (AZ Governor Douglas A. Ducey)

Animal Rights Organizations

There will always be people that don’t believe animals should be pets and they will continue to fight to shut down pet stores. They don’t believe in zoos, aquariums or even service animals. We respect their right to their opinions.

However, we believe in the strength and joy of the human-animal bond. We see it every day when a family finds their perfect pet. We see it in veterans, in children and in people who need a little extra support. We see the companionship, loyalty and friendship a pet brings. And we believe every customer should have a responsible choice when it comes to finding their perfect pet.
