Petland is committed to responsible pet sourcing.

When a customer asks, “Where do Petland dogs come from?” we can answer with confidence, because all of Petland’s dogs come from three primary sources:

  • USDA licensed breeders and distributors with no direct violations on their latest inspection report. The breeders have a veterinarian documented socialization and exercise program and follow the veterinarian’s protocol for skin, coat, nail, and dental hygiene.
  • Hobby breeders as defined by the Animal Welfare Act, who raise their dogs in a humane manner, and
  • Local adoption pets that are vet checked. Some of our puppies and kittens come from local animal shelters or from members of the local community as part of Petland’s Adopt-A- Pet Program.
