anypets.com misleading, scam, dog abuse, pet death Internet
My family and I got our Doberman, Brooklyn, from anypets.com 5 years ago. When we went to go pick her up from the airport, she was COVERED in dirt! It was caked in her eyes, ears and nose. The end of her tail was not properly cut leaving it exposed as well as her dewclaws. We paid $700 to be insured that she was from a breeder, well little to our surprise, when I took her to our vet, 85% of her stomach and intestines were covered in bacteria and coccidia which is commonly found in puppies that come from puppy mills. Sure enough, the breeder wasn't a licensed breeder and was in fact, a puppy mill. Once we told anypets.com, they did refund our money for the dog however, her whole life has been a health battle. She ended up developing pancreatic problems which she is now on $110 a month medication PLUS special food for 4 years to keep the enzyme that breaks down the nutrients in food from in her body since she cannot produce that alone. In just the last year we have found a cheaper form of the medication. Before we found out about that, she was going to the vet/emergency room once a month because she would have uncontrollable diarrhea and vomiting. We had to feed her rice for a good 4 months before all the testing showed it was her pancreas. Now being 5 years of old, we just took her to the vet because she is in liver failure. We are hoping that we caught it in time to fix it but this bill will be close to $1000. Totaling all of her medication PLUS the special food she was on for a good portion of her life the grand total comes to $12,685.76...WOW is all I have to say. This dog has become a part of our family and I would never regret getting her, she is such a sweetie and a furchild to say the least. The bills however keep on piling and I would like to know where anypets.com is now. This letter may not get very far but just a sounding board for our frustrations. Please keep Brooklyn in your thoughts and prayers. We still don't know if she is going to pull out of this one...

kittensforadoption.us free kittens for adoption Internet
I saw an ad on their website. I entered NC and Alamance Co came up; there were several amazing free kitten ads... all had papers, shots and microchips and were Ragdolls, Persians but I have wanted a Birman and there it was 3 Birman kittens! I replied by email and the person texted me and said the kittens were in TX and I had to send them $200. for transportation. I should have known all these free, EXPENSIVE breed ads were not true.  I asked them to call me and was told they couldn't because they were not at home.  The text had madonadiva on it??  I suspect the entire website, not just these ads.

DavetheDogTrainer Harassment San Diego California
I am a resident of the community of Kensington.  I have seen this man with his blue shirt attempt to train canines.  He harrassed me and my son and all the children at the tot lot by the library by using my Germany Shephard as a training tool to show off his training skills to his client.  If he wishes to instigate behavior that needs training in the dogs that belong to his clients, it would make sense to this man who claims to be a professional trainer to take this dog to an area where dogs may be trained freely without harrassing a dog tied to a fence.  Many of the residents witnessed this incident and commented on his comments towards me when I politely asked the man to train the dog elsewhere.  This man has no tact and should not call himself a professional.

Sergeant's Hartz Toxic Products Omaha Nebraska
Do Not Use Sergeant's Products!  I applied the Sergean'ts Silver Flea & Tick squeeze-on to our one year old  dog. This dog is not just a family pet, but is also my son's service dog. She has had flea treatments before as a preventative, and has never had an adverse reaction, therefore none was expected. However, she quickly became violently ill from this product. We are very lucky that I recognized the symptoms, and acted quickly. There is No excuse for such a caustic product to still be on the market!

Petland Pet Store Novi Michigan
We bought an Italian Greyhound from Petland in April of 2005. She was already 4 months old.  Later that year she was diaginosed with Perthis disease. She had to have surgery removing the top of the leg bone from the hip. Her leg know longer attached to her skeleton.  A breed born to run.  Petland did agree to give us another puppy and/or a credit to the store of $1,400.  They stated that they wouldnt get from that breeder anymore.  Yet they still get there Greyhounds out of Missouri.  Apparently there are thousands upon thousands of puppy mills in that sttae.My dog is now 9.5.  At the age of 8 a different vet asked me if I was sure I have had her since she was a puppy. She shows signs of a 12/13 yr old dog!  No one wants to hear this!  I want my baby to live as long as she possibly can. She gets the best of everything!  I know that she is a product of inferior breeding.  Petland will tell you that they don't get puppies from puppy mills. They will show you all there pretty picutres of dogs on grass playing with children.  You don't have 100+ adult breeding dogs that your playing with everyday.  I know their caged their entire life just to make money for the breeder & petland.  Its acutally animal abuse and I can't believe I contrubuted to it by purchasing from this store.

Tutor's Angles Disgusted Covina California
 I had a horrible experience with tutors angels. A small family owned dog breeder or so they claim. I saw their add on petfinder as I was looking for a second cavalier King Charles spaniel. I fell in love with the photo of the puppy they had available so I quickly called and set up a time to meet them the next day. The woman on the phone sent me an address to meet her the next day. It turned out to be a target parking lot, which she said was for safety reasons this seemed odd, but understandable. After waiting an hour she showed up with 4 different dogs. Two to a small cage. She claimed these dogs were pure bred and 11 weeks old. They were 100% not pure bred as I own a pure bred girl and they were bigger than she is now and she 2 years old. These dogs were covered in feces. Everyone of them, covered in poop!! She claimed they went to the bathroom in the crate on the 5 minute ride over. If you know dogs you know they don't go to the bathroom in a crate unless they've been in there for quite some time with no relief. On top of that she proceeded to spray her human perfume on the dogs to get rid of the feces smell. I asked to see the parents, she said she own the mother and her friend owned the father and she showed me pictures that were obviously fake and pulled off the internet. These poor dogs were obviously mistreated and were not full bred as she claimed! I wanted to buy one just to save them, but I would never support this woman! Do not contact this company they falsely advertise purebred dogs with stock images in order to make a bigger profit, and mistreat the animals they have!!

We found Diane McInnes' phone number in the classified in the Houston paper. We were in the market for a small miniature schnauzer. We contacted her on 23rd of December and made arrangements to meet in Hemptstead,Texas to buy the puppy. Diane called said she couldn't make the meeting so we rescheduled for the following day in Magnolia, Texas. Met and bought the puppy. He had a skin problem which she called cradle crap! I think she ment cradle cap that babies get sometime. We took Sami home on the 26th of December and to the Vet on the 27th. Bought skin shampoo, and ear mite medication. Two days later we were back at the vets with a very sick puppy. Possible parvo and or distemper. He stayed there for nine days until he finally gave up and expired. We were so devastated. We had tried to call Diane from the first sign of the illness and had no response. Did get in touch with the vet she said she used on the 23rd for the puppy's well check. He said he had not seen Diane since Oct 12 and that was with a pug dog. We are out a lot of money on this puppy had to treat our house and yard for parvo before we could buy another puppy. This is truly a buyer beware. This was a sweet puppy we will miss greatly. The parents of Sami Diane Harper, TexasU.S.A.

Jan Bellows Hometown Animal Hospital Dental Care Weston Florida forges Health Certificate for Pet shop Weston Florida
Here is a complain against : Doctor Jan Bellows DVM . Dr. Bellows' office Hometown Animal Hospital and Dental Clinic located in Weston Hospital Florida. This veterinary should NOT be allowed to practices anymore. He is forging health certificate for pet shops ( in particular Wizard of Claws in Pembroke Pines/ Fort Lauderdale/Florida). This veterinarian will not certify the puppy to be unfit for sale, and therefore you won't be protected under the Florida Pet Lemon Law. He will only pretend that your pet is fine to protect their interest . Well, guess why ? Who is the owner of the strip mall where Wizard of Claws is renting their shop ? It is Dr Jan Bellows ! I do not understand why he is still in business. He lied to my face pretending that my dog was fine and healthy when he was not at all, just because I bought my pet from Wizard of Claws. BEWARE !!!!

STOP! ..before you think about using the Better Business Bureau (BBB)... CLICK HERE to see how other consumers were victimized by the BBB's false or misleading information. Don't be fooled! It has been reported, when there are thousands of complaints and other investigations underway by authorities, the BBB has no choice but to finally give an UNsatisfactory rating to a BBB member business that is paying the BBB big membership fees every year. When a business is reported that is NOT a BBB member, BBB files WILL more likely show an UNsatisfactory rating, then reportedly shake down that company to become a member of the BBB. One positive thing about the BBB is, either way, if a business has an unsatisfactory rating with the BBB, you can be sure, the business is bad. But what about all those BBB member businesses that had complaints filed against them? Consumers never get to hear about them. What about the BBB advertising to the public?

Animal Refuge Center ARC Only looking at the money not the animals N. Ft. Myers, Florida
I want to report ARC for the animal neglect.  I have been out there many times to vol. and how they treat the animals is bad.  Sickness spreads and they don't take action to contain it.  They hire on a vet tech to basically not take the animals to the ER when it is needed they just let them die a horrible death.  It used to be a joyous place and now its so sad and cold.  I will not be returning or refering them to anyone looking for an animal.  They only want you to look at the animals they want you to adopt and try to force them on you.  You should be able to take all the time you need and pick out any animal young or old or on meds.  Very unhappy!

High Peaks Animal Hospital Raybrook/Bangor Shoddy Veterinary Practice's Bangor New York
I found a stray cat who was severely malnourished. After 2 visits with this vet and $170.00 worth of basic service(ie. check up, shots) I ended up with a cat who had worms a week after she was tested and deemed negative and endured a needless surgery at another vet because this one charges $130.00 for a spaying while another I used charges $ 45.00. Not only was the cat made to suffer unnecissarily because of their incompetence but I was charged for a second office visit after being sent away from the first and told to come back when the cat was in better health and promised there would not be a second charge. It seems that they are unable to tell if an animal has been spayed or not because at the first visit they said she hadn't and they can't read their own notes as the vet said to come back in 3-4 weeks. But the clerk was adament that I was supposed to be back in 1-2 weeks. Thus the second charge. Also don't bother to complain to the managing parties in Ray Brook or Bangor NY because in their view if they give you any kind of service despite how poor or inaccurate there will be a full charge. They believe this is fair. Save your time, animals and money, go somewhere else! Hank malone, New YorkU.S.A.

Hope Animal Rescue New Jersey Sick Puppy From So-Called Rescue Milltown, New Jersey
I adopted my dog Blacky from Hope Animal Rescue, he came with papers stating he had been seen by a vet 1 1/2 weeks prior, I brought him to my vet for a checkup just to be safe. It was a good thing I did, this 3 month old 3 pound Shih-Poo had 3 different intestinal parasites, both ears infected and an eye infection. How can a rescue claim to care for these animals and supposed dire situations and allow this poor dog to be this ill. It seems to me that the real rescue is my home and we have rescued from this rescue. My dog is currently at the overnight emergency clinic, we are told for 2 days, he has been at the vet more then at his new home and I can only imagine how many people have trusted that this rescue was actually helping these poor animals when in actuality it seems they are doing nothing more then using another name for what they are which is pet store. It is appalling and very sad.

Olympic Animal Sanctuary Steve Markwell Why can't we get inside? Investigate living conditions BEFORE sending a life or money. Forks Washington
Have you been inside?   No?   Take a hint.  Visit-go inside- any Rescue or Sanctuary before sending a life or money.  Sound too good to be true?  Do the math.  Think.  How can one person, house, feed, clean and rehabilitate over 130 dogs on 3/4 of an acre with no staff?   Of course, this is all alleged.   Do Hoarders Often Pose as Rescue Groups or Sanctuaries? Absolutely. Research shows many hoarders are beginning to set themselves up as rescue shelters, complete with 501(c)(3) not-for-profit status. They may appear to be sensible people, persuasively conveying their love for animals and readiness to take those who are sick and with special needs. Furthermore, the Internet appears to be becoming a great tool for solicitation. When looking to place an animal, it is easy for a person to get seduced by a pretty website. Caution people to look behind the curtain before giving over an animal. Here are several signs that a rescue group or shelter may involve a hoarder: The group is unwilling to let visitors see the location where animals are kept.** The group will not disclose the number of animals in its care.** Little effort is made to adopt animals out.** More animals are continually taken in, despite the poor condition of existing animals.** Legitimate shelters and rescue organizations are viewed as the enemy.** Animals may be received at a remote location (parking lot, street corner, etc.) rather than at the group's facilities.**

Vet Siobhan O'Neill, Access Animal Hospital Extreme Remissness Master Who Neglected Pet to Die Culver City California
Siobhan O’Neill is an Extreme Remissness Master Who Misdiagnosed and Neglected Pet to DieOur pet died as a consequence of Siobhan O’Neill’s master negligence, misdiagnosis (misdiagnosis is a direct result of negligence of course) and extremely unprofessional behaviors.Internal medicine vet Siobhan O’Neill is the vet whose mind and soul is in outer space. She never noticed any warning numbers on the blood test. Precisely, she likely never even read the blood test result. But simply based on the symptoms of vomiting and diarrhea, she thinks it is some stomach issue. But blood test tells more severe stories!!! She never read it to know it!! Of course for her absence of mind, the simpler the case, the better for her.She never pays attention, she never even inform pet owner things in details. Even at the critical moment of whether the pet has cancer or something more mediocre, she didn’t inform the pet owner on time about the lab test result, not even a call to explain important things in detail and laid out detailed treatment plan. The pet owner was left unclear what happens next to the pet: what needs to be done next; what is the short and long term treatment plans!Siobhan O’Neill’s douche facts:1. She said if the pet is not responding to the treatment, then we need to change treatment plan:When I told her several times I am highly concerned my pet’s condition and it seems the treatment is not working, she never changed the treatment plan or even showed any concern about it. She’d slowly respond with an email 1-2 days later, never a phone call, then briefly said something in theory and done. How ridiculous is this!2. At the moment I told her the pet is still losing weight, she told me let’s check weight in two weeks and see if the medication is working or not (while the pet is losing weight and the medication is not working; therefore why wait two weeks). This is how insanely absurd and unexplainable Siobhan O’Neill is.3. No matter how concerned you are and how much crisis there is, she acted like your pet is only having a cancer. Bet she rarely even look into the pet to gauge or concern about the real condition.Now I start feeling I am overly concerned about my pet. After all the so-call “expert” is not concerned at all. So I told myself to be easy and this seriously delayed the treatment plan and survival of my pet!!However I still sensed I have to take the pet away from her knowing the fate of the pet is perdition under Siobhan O’Neill’s hand. But still the delay and damage have been cost due to Siobhan O’Neill’s misdiagnosis and negligence and her unreasonable remissness.What is even more ridiculous and amazing, there are a few problems she diagnosed herself and then completely forget! She never did further exam or treatment on the pet. When two months after the pet has died, I went back to her to question the problems she diagnosed earlier and ask if they have been excluded already. She told me it is not and should be examed. Can you believe that the pet owner needs to remind a vet who forgot what needs to be checked-up. She then asked if I’d like to schedule an appointment. To remember my pet’s issue is difficult for her but if I reminded her, it is easy for her to just schedule an appointment and swipe the card, right? It is all about easy money.Siobhan O’Neill, karma is waiting on you. What you have done will be remembered and known by many many people (not just pet owner or related). All vets think they can do anything they want because they can hide it. We’ll see. Karma will take good care of you.Ps not just Siobhan O’Neill, this entire hospital practice remissness, negligence and mediocreness on a daily basis. They don’t have chart, an ER vet didn’t even fill out a medical record after seeing the patient. They forget problems they diagnosed themselves and left pet in jeopardy. When the pet is rapidly declining, they ignore the pet owner’s words. No matter how urgent the pet’s situation is, they treated it like nothing worse than a cold or cough. A front desk (an older very tall, skinny male with quite long horse face) is supposed to call another hospital for medical record at 8am but he was there chatting and joking, completely ignoring the pet owner standing in front of him by purpose.Why would all these happen? Because this is a very mediocre hospital performing remissness and negligence as part of their standard practice.

mygrowl.com animal rescue dawn@mygrowl.com This is nothing short of 'elder abuse'!! Edgewater New Jersey
She My husband and I are seniors living in northwest NJ.  On 1/14/2016 we received a call from Dawn of the mygrowl animal rescue in Edgewater, NJ about a Bichon Frise dog we had applied to adopt.  She set up an appointment for 1/16 between 9 and 10 A.M. to bring the dog to us and even offered to split the adoption fee into two increments to make it easier on our budget.  She said she would call again the next day (1/15) in case we thought of any additional questions we wanted to ask prior to meeting Toby.  We did not hear from her on the 15th and she did not keep her appointment on the 16th.  We waited until 11:30 A.M. and tried to call her.  She did not pick up and we could not even leave a message as her mailbox was full (and it has been ever since).  So we tried emailing her.  We waited all day and finally, that night, she sent a terse email saying she would have to 'postpone' because she was at the vet with another dog.  No apology for making us wait all day.  We would have liked to go visit our son if we had known the appointment was 'postponed'. We emailed and emailed after that date, asking her to please let us know if we were being considered as adopters. There finally was one response telling us what we already knew: she was at the vet, etc.  'Postponing' something would seem to imply that another appointment would be forthcoming.  We asked for that.  No response.   More and more emails to her (we lost count) and she simply refused to communicate with us.  Finally, yesterday (1/29/16) we wrote a strong message asking her to P L E A S E!! let us know what to expect.  This morning she wrote back telling us we are too old to adopt a 3-yr-old dog.  We should get a senior dog which would, in effect, die before we do because this 3-yr-old dog should never, ever be rehomed again in his whole life.  We assured her he would go to our son and his family if anything happens to us; and we don't want a senior dog because we can't face the heartbreak we just went through when losing our Bichon, Jordie, to cancer.  She wrote back and told us we are 'selfish'. This woman may be good with animals but she certainly lacks a lot in people skills. We would like to report her abusive treatment of us to other volunteers in that shelter but, as one site describes it, their address is hidden - no street address or telephone number available (except hers). She claims Toby will remain in his foster home but all the pictures of him on Facebook advertise him for adoption. Looks like she lies. We provided references and they confirm she never contacted them. So she really knows nothing about us personally; just seems to have made a decision without having any facts. She seems to run the whole show and someone needs to catch up to her shoddy treatment of prospective adopters, especially seniors like us.

Christine Smith - Francis Smith ripoff, animal cruelty, con Chattanooga Tennessee
Christine Smith seems like a nice and professional person. I had bought a puppy from her that she gauranteed its healthor a free puppy. I recieved the puppy form her that looked healthy from her website. However, it was not healthy at all. Once I got it it had very bad diarrhea and was vomitting excessivley. I took it to the vet. The vet said that it had to get sick from her home from her dogs since it had not been exposed to any other animals in the short period of time I had it. So I had called her after I got off of work around 9 pm and she was very intoxicated. I told her that the puppy had died and I only had it for less than 24 hours and I wanted my money back. I was not rude or in a hurry for my money. She refused. She offered to give me a puppy by the end of the year. I was irrate. i decided to do some investigating on this woman. I called around and got some relatives of hers, numbers. I was told that she doesn't always breed the dogs herself! She will drive a few hours and find puppies that are registered for $200- $300 and resell them on the internet for $800. I also found out that she has had many dogs die from parvo, coccidia, and other outragious things such as chemical spills. Her ex-girlfriend had given me even more outragious information about her animal cruelity acts. She has over 8-14 dogs depending if they got puppies at the time locked incages or stuck out back running in their own fecies. Her and her husband get drunk and get them fighting. They also get their male Boston to hump their poor cat. They are sick and cruel people. Do not be fooled by Christine Smith. Debra Nashville, TennesseeU.S.A.

Elegante Groomer, Inc. Animal abuse and very unprofessional Belleville New Jersey
I've taken my dog to Elegante Groomers two times. After the first time upon return, my dog was crying and didn't want me to put him down. Unfortunately, I just figured he didn't like to get his haircut. I truly regret it. On 8/11/08, as I returned to pick up my dog, I witnessed an employee (who later claimed to be the owner) abusing a dog. She was holding the dog by the neck and slamming him/her down on the table and as she was lifting and shaking it, its body was banging against the leash pole. I then asked her if that's the way she treats all the dogs and she proceeded to scream at me and told me to mind my own f****** business and that the dog was trying to bite her. I responded by telling her that it was my business because I am a paying customer and concerned about how my dog is treated. We got into a heated argument (a screaming match) and I told her that I would not be returning and that I was going to report her to the BBB and the Humane Society. She continued to use profanity and told me that she didn't care and that she hopes I get killed by a car when I step outside. It's extremely upsetting to know that she thought it was okay to treat that poor dog like that. Not to mention how she treats her customers. Needless to say, I will not be returning, I reported her to the BBB and also to the Humane Society and hope that if someone else sees the abuse, they also report them.
