petland Simon Rosenberg puppymill puppies sick animals unhealthy work enviroment pembroke pines, Florida
I used to work there for almost 2 years. The puppies were always sick and dying. The kennel techs that work there with The puppies genuinely care and take great care of the them but the owner, simon rosenburg, buys them from puppy mills saying they are from usda approved breeders but it's all lies. Ask for proof its from a usda approved breeder and they have no proof. Don't ever buy a puppy from here unless you want to be signing a 3 page contract that they "summarize" for you that binds you to your sick hypoglosemic puppy. Read THE CONTRACT IN FULL! you're signing all your rights away! You literally have to FIGHT with claims and warranties department thats states away over the phone for hours to be reimbursed for your dead/sick dog. ALMOST VERY DOG THAT GOES HOME GOES WITH MEDICATION OR ISNT ALLOWED TO GO HOME UNTIL THEY ARE OFF THE MEDICATION THEY ARE ALREADY ON. THEY SAY IT'S BECAUSE YOUR DOG IS STRESSED AND THE IMMUNE SYSTEM IS LOWERED BUT THAT'S A BUNCH OF REHEARSED BULL THE MANAGER TELLS YOU YOU MUST SAY. TAKE THE DOG TO YOUR OWN VET... NOT THE ONE THEY PROVIDE AND YOU WILL FIND SO MUCH s**t WRONG WITH THE POOR PUPPYMILL PUP.
Aside from the dogs... all the hamsters are sick with wettail. The birds die within a month. The fish.. oh God don't get me started. There were at least 5 fish in each (out of 50 tanks mind you) tank every God d**n morning I had to fetch out. The fish are always sick and dying. If they cared and treated their 16 year old employees a little better they might take care of the animals for once instead of covering up the animals messes with more bedding. They push SICK PUPPY SELLING on these kids making charts and diagrams to post up to see if you made your $20,000 of puppy sales that month and if you didn't you're threatened to be fired. Selling sick puppies comes first before taking care of the animals. That's why they're all so sick. Noone takes care or medicates ANYTHING and if you don't have a receipt with your dead companion then you're screwed or if you complain enough they replace it with another sick animal. The animals they do treat (which is rare) are put in "isolation" in the back with the dogs and get forgotten and noone takes responcibility to treat them.
You come in 10 minutes late and you get chewed out, but the manager is always 2 hours late and changes it in the computer. They dont mind selling sick animals. They just say theyre stressed and if you buy vitamins with them you will get a 7 day warrenty, but UH OH... your animal died on the 8th day and youre screwed. That's why I quit. I couldn't take all the threats I was getting from all the enraged puppy parents whose companions died 2 days after purchase. I couldn't take working wIth the children they hire that don't do the work they're paid for.
They deserve to be SHUT DOWN. Not to mention how horrible and dirty the store is that the customers don't see. There is one working bathroom that works half the time. The other bathroom is used to store paperwork and animal food. There are holes in the walls that rats and roaches love to call home ad get into the pet food. This place is a sorry establishment. The owner buys the dogs for 400 and sells them for 1500 and up just cause he throws in a health warranty and some other bonus stuff that you'll never use cause the vet they give you for free suuucks and refuses to find anything wrong with your dog cause petland brings him so much business. Shut down petland and save the lives of so many animals...
