My son purchased a little yorkie puppy on March 1, 2009, and she had to receive emergency medical care. She was in the hospital, and died prior to March 9, 2009. We called Petland repeatedly, had the hospital, Vets, and clinics fax and phone them. They did not help. They refuse to admit fault. We have everything documented with all the Vets (VMD's) working to help us stop Petland from selling sick puppies. The Petland Vet, Dr. Deborah Abt, assured me that she did not let a sick puppy get sold, and she was part of the post op. She could not find a cause of death. However, Dr. Caslow, the VMD that owns the hospital that she works at, disagrees with her. Dr. Caslow is not associated with Petland. Dr. Abt is very much associated with Petland. Petland has not sent any letters, or tried to help us in any way. The sweetest little puppy suffered because of Slivko & Associates, LLC, Petland, and Dr. Abt. We are not going to let her death be ignored.

Please contact Petland Pittsburgh Monroeville to let them know that we know that they purchase puppy mill puppies. Let them know that they sell infected animals. This poor little puppy was infectious. After repeated notifications from my family, they refuse to test the other animals at their store. They haven't paid off their loan for the store, and guess what...we paid for it...The loan is a federal loan. We have to get the Government agencies to listen to us. We were not aware of Petland's dirty secrets. We are now, and we are on the side of our puppy, and all the other animals in the world. If you too have had issues with the store. Unite. A class action law suit is the way to start. We have enough people to complain on blogs, but we need enough people to go to the Attorney General. We did, and we also contacted HSUS, and gave both of them our paperwork. This cause is going to last forever. The little puppy that they sold infected and sick is going to haunt them for their unethical and immoral practices.

Slivko & Associates, LLC dba Petland Pittsburgh Monroe...You are not going to be able to hide your death camp any longer. Admit fault, and do the right thing for the animals and the public. It is time to tell the truth. If you don't do it now, all the public that has had these issues will unite and get the Attorney General to take action. I have every confidence that PA and the Attorney General are sick of hearing complaints about you.

Slivko's Sell Dying Puppies

AUTHOR: Disgraced - (U.S.A.)

Petland sold my family a puppy that died in a week. We shared our documentation with several reporters. In the past week, three other families were in the news that also purchased their puppy from the Slivko's Monroeville Petland. They also lost their puppies to death due to illness. Clay and Jessica Slivko purchase their puppies through Hunte. They also do not follow up with their customers unless you file formal complaints. Mr. Slivko is trying to blame HSUS for his puppy issues. I would contact Petland Pittsburgh Monroeville, and ask Mr. Slivko if he purchases his puppies through Hunte. Ask him exactly how many puppies have died since he opened the store in 2001. Ask him how he and his wife sleep at night. Ask him to tell you when he plans to stop making excuses and do something about his store. If you should get a response from him, please post it.

Slivkos Should be Ashamed

AUTHOR: Disgraced - (U.S.A.)

We are so glad that we will get a day in court with you...

Updated: 7:50 am EDT March 18, 2009

COLUMBUS, Ohio -- The Humane Society of the United States is suing Petland Inc., accusing the pet store chain of orchestrating a scheme to sell sick puppies to unsuspecting consumers.

The animal protection group said Petland, based in Chillicothe, Ohio, intentionally misled thousands of Americans into believing that puppies were healthy and the product of the finest quality breeders.

The group said its investigation shows that many of the puppies sold by Petland were bred in horrific conditions in puppy mills or through brokers such as the Hunte Corp., based in Goodman, Mo.

The lawsuit was filed Monday in U.S. District Court in Phoenix.

An urn filled with ashes is all Mary Morrow and her family have left as a reminder of their dog Bear.

Morrow said she paid more than $3,000 for Bear and another dog at a Petland store in Monroeville in March 2008, but both dogs had health problems and in July, 3-month-old Bear died.

"It's horrible buying a dog, and it's like you're buying a new member of your family and they get sick and die," said Mary Morrow.

Petland said Tuesday the company is outraged and disappointed by what it called false accusations. A message seeking comment was left Hunte headquarters.

Local Petland owners said the accusation aren't true.

"The government agency responsible to make sure puppies are being bred correctly is the FDA," said Clay Slivka, owner of the Petland store in Monroeville. "So if the Humane Society had evidence that the puppies were being breed incorrectly they should have informed the FDA. To this date there's no evidence from the FDA."

Slivko Petland Pittsburgh Monroeville Puppies Dying

AUTHOR: Disgraced - (U.S.A.)

Apparently, Inside Edition is reviewing information regarding the Slivko's Petland store. Many people have sent a public video on the internet. It is hard to believe that they sell sick animals that end up dying. When will this end? When will they do the right thing for their animals and their customers. Please share your stories and share your comments. You may see the public information if you look in the following location -slivko(dot)servemp3(dot)com(backslash)Pictures(backslash)index(dot)html - Just to see them push a little kitten into a dog, or to make suggestive fun of their cat being held down by their dog is enough to make you wonder how they got the government loan for the store in the first place. You decide. Everyone has a right to form their own opinions of Petland Pittsburgh Mornroeville.

Additional Phone Number for Slivko/Petland (412) 373-3253

AUTHOR: Disgraced - (U.S.A.)

Petland Pittsburgh Monroeville is actually owned by Clayton R. Slivko and Jessica L. Slivko they are dba Petland. Mr. Slivko will not contact us regarding the death of the puppy that his store sold sick. His staff says that he works 14 hour days and can't be reached for a week or more. He lives in the same city as the store. How hard can it be to care about his customers or the animals that he sells? This is a franchise, so Mr. Slivko is responsible and so is Petland. When will someone take responsibility for the way these animals are treated and sold?
