Does anyone no where pets at home buy their gerbiles from, is it like a ..
I agree with Luci. Though my local pet store is run by a breeder, so when you go to your local pet shop (not ones like Pets At Home) ask the owner if they breed their hamsters. If they say yes make sure that their current hamsters are in good conditions and that theyre professional breeders. Then it would be ok to buy a hamster from a pet shop. It is still better to adopt though.
When we have pets, they quickly become a part of our family. But when it comes to selling your home, potential buyers may not be impressed by the presence of your four-legged family member. Whether it’s due to allergies or a simple case of not being a lover of animals, many buyers shy away from a home with pets. The good news is that there are strategies you can employ to sell your house without a ruff time.

Buying My New Fish From Pets At Home / unboxing - YouTube
It seems back-yard breeding is only acceptable to Pets At Home when its them who is doing it. They do not want us going to people breeding litters from their home, but they're a-ok with us buying their mill rodents.I am well aware some very small pet shops may breed the rats themselves on the premises: I have worked at one. Of course a smaller pet shop doesn't need to buy in from mills, because they sell a fraction of the number of rats each year that a chain like, for example, Pets At Home sell. They can usually meet demand well enough by just breeding a couple of litters a year themselves.There are plenty of shops you can buy pet food, supplies, toys and treats from that do not sell animals, and there are hundreds of rescue homes and good, responsible breeders out there who have animals you can take on. Please consider taking your business to these sources rather than Pets At Home, or any pet shop. It is only via this type of boycotting that we will ever get pet shops to stop selling animals.I don't agree with Pets at home selling pets in store, it promotes impulse buys and it does make you wonder where they get all their rabbits/hamsters (and whatever other animals they sell) from.I've seen one from Pets at Home that I like - are they OK to buy pets from? There's no independent pet shops near me (well there's one that stocks supplies but no animals) The other place I can get it from is a garden centre - a responsible retailer (i.e. you can't buy fish until you've given them a sample of your tank water)First of all, removing pets from the home is likely to get your home sold faster. If people looking at your home see that a dog or cat lives there, it is easy to assume that there is damage to the home or that it’s unclean or unsanitary. Take the time to put away any toys, cages and even food bowls during the time potential buyers are going through your home. It’s also wise to give your home a deep cleaning to get rid of any lingering odors and pet dander your pet has left behind. We become accustom to the smells of our homes, and may not realize the odors our pets leave behind.
