Well, some of their workers do genuiely care for the dogs & cats they sold, but would they buy that dog or cat back from you if you took the dog or cat straight to a vet to have it throughly examined and was discovered it had a tumor or kidney disease, etc? NO!!! THAT is a HUGE difference between a pet store selling dogs & cats ( and yes, over 90% of them are puppy-mill pets which btw, IS illegal ) and a reputable breeder selling it to you.

A reputable breeder will ALWAYS buy back that sick dog or cat, because their business largely is word-of-mouth. They can't afford to have an ill-satisfied customer.

So, to those workers who lost their jobs once Scamps was shut down, sorry for the loss and hope you find work soon, but on the other hand, at least that is a proven puppy mill put out of business--which is a bonus for every dog & cat not yet sold to them just for the $$$ because the store management doesn't give a sh*t about the health of these dogs! These chain of stores should never have been allowed to sell even one dog or cat.

This store was no different than the Clackamas, OR store.

Scamps like many pet stores buy their pets from breeders. Some of the worst breeders they buy from are puppy mills. Puppy mill practices include: keeping mother dogs in cramped unsanitary cages (never letting them go for even a short walk) where they live solely to be impregnated and give birth, pulling puppies away from their mothers when they are too young which can lead to behavioral problems, and keeping their puppies in conditions that lead to horrible illness.

It doesn't just end with puppy mills... kittens, birds, fish, and other animals at pet stores can come from similar bad breeders.

But the worst part about Scamps is that they cause other pets to be euthanized. When Scamps buys from any breeder, good or bad, they are encouraging the breeder to breed more pets to sell. But the sad fact is that their are already too many pets in America, so many in fact that hundreds of unwanted pets are euthanized in shelters everyday.

That is why people should stop funding the breeding of more pets and instead adopt and save an unwanted pet from a shelter or rescue organization. This does not mean you will have to adopt a mutt, there are many rescue organization that specialize in certain breeds, you can find them through such websites as www.petfinder.com.

If you must shop at Scamps, please take a moment to encourage them to stop selling animals from breeders and instead encourage adoptions from rescue organizations.

Pros: the staff will take the time to help your family find what pet is right for you and show you all you will need for the new pet.

Cons: small product selection

i go here for all my pet needs. The staff really seems to know what they are talking about, and seem much more attentive to you and your pets than other large mass-market stores. They also have pets to purchase, such as puppies, rabbits, rodents, lizards, fish, and all the accessories that go with them. Not to mention, sometimes they have good deals just because. I got a $5 goldfish for .99 just because he was trying to get rid of them!

PROS: happy people, healthy animals
CONS: none

My hubby and I are on the verge of betting a dog - we visit Scamps a lot. Every time we go - no matter how many times a week we go, they have new dogs. It's amazing - the puppies seem well treated. I like to pet the bnnies too.
