What Happens to the Puppies You Don’t Sell?
All of our puppies are adopted by our customers. The typical Petland puppy is in our store for less than 10 days.
We have been in business for more than 43 years. We know what puppies are going to find homes quickly. We work with wonderful breeders who select great puppies for us.
If, for some reason, no one adopts a particular puppy in a short amount of time, we work hard to find the puppy home with adoption specials. We are very good at this. Our pet counselors undergo extensive and ongoing training in matching our puppies with our customers.
In fact, we also find homes for thousands of homeless puppies and kittens through our Adopt-A-PetR program. Since 1998, Petland stores nationwide have placed more than 310,000 abandoned or unwanted pets.
Where Do Petland Novi Puppies Come From?
Our puppies are happy and healthy family pets. They come from USDA licensed breeders and distributors with no direct violations on their latest inspection report; hobby breeders as defined by the Animal Welfare Act, who raise their dogs in a humane manner; and local adoption pets that are vet-checked. We pride ourselves on our most diligent efforts to find healthy puppies.
Above and beyond the USDA guidelines, our Director of Animal Welfare Education makes personal inspections of breeder facilities to evaluate the level of animal care being provided.
Petland store owners are required to conduct site visits of breeder facilities. Breeders must be in compliance with any applicable local and state government regulations, in addition to the USDA.
All Petland Novi puppies are checked by at least two and in many cases three veterinarians before being offered to customers. Our puppies also are issued health certificates.
Petland requires veterinarian documentation on each incoming puppy’s medical history, including inoculations and wormings. Each Petland store owner also requires a local consulting veterinarian to examine individual puppies and to update their health records.Once a puppy is accepted at Petland, extensive systems are in place to ensure its well-being is maintained.
