1. What is PettingPet.com? Relentlessly focused on our mission to make lives better by placing healthy puppies/kittens


2. How do I know that you are not a scam?At PettingPet, we do not ask for trust, we earn it through transparency and action. So, instead of taking our word for what it's like to work with us, we encourage you to read reviews from real customers. Every one of our customers receives a survey and we proudly post every single review we receive on our website, in chronological order (no funny business like only posting the best reviews), so prospective customers can review thorough feedback from some of the nearly 150,000 others who have already experienced the magic of the PettingPet process.


3. How can I help PettingPet fight scams?As a company of true dog lovers, it's heartbreaking to hear stories of scammers taking advantage of a family's search for a new four-legged family member and we work hard to educate the public about how to avoid puppy/kitten scams. To help us in that fight, if you or someone you know has been victim of a pet scam, please reach out to us at info@PettingPet.com.


4. What's the difference between you and a pet store?There is almost no similarity between PettingPet and a pet store. Pet stores typically sell thousands of products for animals of all kinds. Our mission is simple and clear – to make lives better by placing healthy puppies into happy homes. While there are countless differences between PettingPet and a pet store, we will highlight a few of them here.


5. Will I be able to visit my puppy/kitten or speak to the breeder before my puppy/kitten comes home? While finding a puppy/kitten used to be a local exercise where you were limited to the breeds and breeders near you regardless of their quality or experience, PettingPet has changed all of that. PettingPet was specifically designed to connect you with the perfect puppy/kitten for you, no matter where in the country you or the breeder live. As a result, in most cases, the first time you meet your new best friend is when he or she arrives in your home. That said, our transparent process is specifically designed to eliminate all the scary unknowns that often accompany looking for a new puppy/kitten, whether you are looking online or offline. From the start of the process when we screen, vet and qualify every breeder in our network, to our unmatched health and vaccination protocols, we do everything to ensure you receive a healthy puppy/kitten from a responsible source. And, we back all of that with an industry-leading health guarantee.
Although you will not visit your new family member before he or she travels to you, our team of puppy/kitten experts is committed to providing you with all the information you need and want. Not only do you rely upon our expertise to find the best breeders in the nation and get to see pictures and videos of your puppy/kitten and its parents, but you can also connect with your breeder anytime. Whenever you want, you have the option to speak directly to your breeder, accompanied by one of our puppy/kitten experts, to ask any questions, learn more about your puppy/kitten and address any concerns you may have.


6. Why are your price is so fair? Although, in many cases, our prices are comparable to or less than those you would find elsewhere, our goal is to be the best and safest place to find your new furry family member. As a result of the heavy investment we make in our technology and nearly 200 dog-loving team members across the country, we are not competing to be the cheapest place to buy your dog. What we do involves a lot more than just selling puppies. Beyond matching you with your perfect puppy/kitten, handling all of the logistics to get your puppy/kitten to you and providing an industry-leading health guarantee, we also employ a full compliance team who screens, qualifies and regularly re-screens every active breeder in our network, as well as a team of health experts to make sure your puppy/kitten is in great shape before it leaves its breeder. We provide hands-on, personalized guidance throughout the entire placement process and are always just an email or call away. And, our customers can rest easily with our No puppy/kitten Mill Promise and free lifetime support, which are all included in the exclusive package that accompanies every PettingPet puppy/kitten. All that allows you to focus on what really matters – preparing your home for your new best friend.


7. Why use PettingPet rather than adopt from a shelter? Reputable shelters are a great option for some, but they are not for everyone. If finding a purebred or purpose-bred designer puppy/kitten or knowing your new family member's health and behavioral history are important to you, PettingPet is likely the better choice for you as that information is not often available to you at a shelter. That being said, we are not anti-shelter in any way but, instead, pro-dog. As dog lovers, what is important to us is that people are able to make educated choices and find their dogs and cats from a responsible, humane source, whether that source is a shelter, a rescue or a breeder. And, while there are many wonderful shelters and rescues out there, unfortunately, that is not always the case. Unlike responsible breeders, rescues and shelters are not typically licensed or regulated by the government and often operate without government oversight.
Also, while adopting from a shelter is a viable alternative for some people, for tens of millions of American dog lovers, adopting a pet from a shelter or rescue is simply not feasible for health reasons (e.g., disabilities, PTSD, allergies). There are also many dog lovers for whom knowing the behavioral and health histories of their puppies is important, whether that's because they have small children, need a service dog or otherwise want a specific breed with specific characteristics. There are countless other reasons a family may have decided a purebred or designer breed is the best fit for their family and, without documentation about a dog and its family history, it can be impossible to tell whether you are getting what you think you are.
Finally, among the many myths out there about shelter adoption is the one about overpopulation of dogs and cats in shelters in the United States. The simple fact is that even if every single adoptable shelter dog were adopted, those dogs and cats would not come close to satisfying the country's annual demand for companion dogs and cats. In fact, scientific data by Mississippi State University and the Pet Leadership Council show not only a significant gap and but a growing one between the supply of and demand for puppies. In fact, with all of the work we do on the front-end to ensure the health of our puppies and screen our customers, as well as unique programs like our internal rehoming program, we believe we are making a real impact upon limiting the number of dogs and cats surrendered at shelters.
