Pet Paradise Complaint - PET PARADISE SHOULD BE CLOSED
ENGLISHTOWN, NEW JERSEY -- Before I bought my puppy, I did a research online. I read reviews about PET PARADISE. I read horrible stories where I just don't believe, but I was stubborn and did not want to believe my eyes. I am 17 turning 18, and I have always loved animals. I never had a puppy and I was attached to this puppy or what ever he was. I knew I had to buy him, not including the vet bills and the food they made me buy, and other needed accessories. I knew money was hard to make, but losing him was something I just couldn’t manage. My mom brought him to the vet 2 days after the purchase, my mom was embarrassed when she found out he is not a purebred like I was told by the sales, and I was told by the pet store he was healthy, but he was taking this pill and this liquid medication, which appears to be too strong for my puppy. He also had skin problem, all these information was just heartbreaking. So, I came home from work finding out he is not a purebred (so i was ripped off)and he is sick, I tried to stay calm while my parents continuously yelling at me. I knew there was nothing I can possibly do, so I just cleaned his crate, fed him, played with him for an hour, and then just went to do homework. The following 2 days were hell for me. I come home from school then off to work, come back home at 9 30 and expect controversy from my parents. On October 13 Friday, I was studying for SATS because SATS was the following day. My mother came home around 6 started yelling, “I told you not to get him he’s unhealthy”, I just remember crying thinking I just can’t take this anymore. I told her to call the vet and we are going there now. I went to the vet she told me your puppy is not what I thought he was, not just that, he’s also unhealthy. I started to cry a little because I knew where this was going “unfit for sale”. I remember driving home just crying, knowing that I have a huge test the following day, just made me feel horrible. I ran into my house grabbed him and just cried. He is my first puppy, my birthday gift, my Christmas gift, and I had a costume for him for Halloween. My father came home, and we all left to bring him back to Pet Paradise. I remember holding him, remembering how I carried him home the day I bought him, I was just shatter. He was just crying in the car, I know he did not like car rides. We arrived at Pet Paradise, I refuse to watch him leave, and I just sat in the car. I was honestly devastated, and SATS was just not something I needed the following day. They say they are animal lovers, but honestly I believe their in just for business. They can careless for these innocent puppies, when their minds are all on the cash. They are heartless people in my mind and always will be. They ruined my Halloween, my 18th birthday, and my first experience with my own puppy. These puppies are innocent, and I feel bad that these sick puppies are not treated well. Puppy Mill Businesses should just not be allowed, it’s a selfish business when nearly all these puppies being sold are sick or going to be sick and these peoples are actually making money sending these puppies to die. I also read Philly’s Story it was very, very upsetting. I really hope something like that would never happen, breaking a little girls heart, that’s just cold hearted. I just want Pet Paradise to be closed, before Christmas just so no one will be hurt when they find out their puppy is sick, and is unfit for sale. I went back to Pet Paradise, my puppy is no longer there, and I wonder where he is. I felt terrible bringing him back to that place. I just wished I could have convinced my parents to have kept him.
