Petland is the retail pet industry leader in the area of animal care with ongoing staff training programs, in-store animal husbandry systems and community service programs aimed at placing homeless pets and curbing pet overpopulation in the community.
For nearly 50 years, Petland has advanced by developing state-of-the-art standards for its retail pet stores.
Petland is proud of its commitment to animal welfare and quality of our pets.
1. USDA licensed breeders and distributors with no direct violations on their latest inspection report who have a veterinarian-documented socialization and exercise program and follow veterinarian protocol for skin, coat, nail and dental hygiene.
2. Hobby breeders as defined by the Animal Welfare Act, who raise their animals in a humane manner.
3. Local adoption pets that are vet-checked.
Petland™s Director of Animal Welfare Education and the Operations Team visits USDA licensed breeders and distributors to make certain standards are maintained. They also work with local, state and federal regulatory agencies and legislators concerning animal welfare issues and education and host an annual Breeder Education Forum with the USDA for franchisees and breeders.
