TORONTO, ON, August 16, 2011 – PJ's Pets and Pets Unlimited have announced that they will no longer sell puppies in any of their stores.
Many pet shops in Toronto have voluntarily stopped selling animals from puppy mills. In August, the national chain of PJ’s Pets announced it would no longer sell puppies and instead focus on supporting pet adoptions.
So long story short. I am not buying from Pj's Pets.... Anybody else have this type of problem? If so feel free to rant here I would love to hear other stories of misfortunate experiences. Also if anybody knows of a Roborovski breeder in Ontario, Canada that is close to Toronto please let me know. I would super appreciate it, as I am looking to get a new hamster in a few months and that is the breed I am looking for.

I was under the impression the selling of puppies and kittens in pet stores was illegal in the city of Toronto, apparently not. As long as the cats/kittens are "surrendered" to the pet store they can be sold. Pj's pets also have a bengal and siamese kitten for sale. Why would breeders surrender the kittens to a pet store and suffer a financial loss?
Stop buying kittens from pet stores.
For less than $200 dollars you can adopt from a rescue group which includes a spay/neuter, several vets of vaccines, pet insurance and more.
It does not cost Pj's pets $200 to vaccinate a kitten. In the city of Toronto you can vaccinated/vet check a kitten for under $100.00.
Adopting from a pet store puts the kitten at a high risk of viruses. The kittens are not being handled by professionals i.e. people who have a educated eye for illness.
Stop buying, adopt from a rescue, it's the safest way.TORONTO, ON, August 16, 2011 PJ's Pets and Pets Unlimited have announced that they will no longer sell puppies in any of their stores. As of September 1st, their focus will be to support pet adoption services in an effort to find homes for thousands of pets in local SPCA's, Humane Societies, rescue groups and shelters across the country.
