That’s right, folks! We don’t just have puppies! Petland is known for being full-service and focusing on all types of different animals, because everyone’s preference is different! Small animals can be an easier starter pet for a young child or a great low-maintenance pet for a teacher and their classroom! We welcome all types of pet parents in our store, because it’s clear that we all love animals, no matter what size or shape they come in! Our small animals come from caring breeders that are focused on raising the bar when it comes to animal care and husbandry.
Our small animals are also well-socialized while being in our store. Unlike other pet stores, our animals are accessible as long as they are handled with care and not behind glass enclosures where you can’t pick one out based on personality. We encourage socialization because it makes our small animals better companions and our customers more informed pet parents before they take one of our little guys home!
We also carry an array of small animal supplies so you can properly take care of your small animal. We have top-of-the-line cages and habitats for them to live in that are fun to look at and easy to clean. We also carry all the latest and greatest toys, treats and high-quality foods for all of our small animals so you can strengthen the bond between animal lover and pet. In short, we want to match the right pet with the right owner and meet the needs of both, that’s the Petland motto!
Several other Mustelids also have the word ferret in their common names, including an endangered species, the black-footed ferret.
Dwarf Roborovski hamsters are curious beings that don’t like to be held. They are content to socialize with their own kind while you watch from outside their home.
The best-known species of hamster is the golden or Syrian hamster (Mesocricetus auratus), which is the type most commonly kept as pets. It is also sometimes called a “fancy” hamster.
Rabbits are small mammals in the family Leporidae of the order Lagomorpha, found in several parts of the world.
There are many other species of rabbit, and these, along with pikas and hares, make up the order Lagomorpha.
