There is almost no similarity between Petnow 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 Petsus and a pet store, we will highlight a few of them here.
- Direct to You: Because of our commitment to the humane treatment of all dogs, when you find a puppy at Petnow, it comes directly from an experienced breeder (literally, thanks to Petnow travel program, your puppy will arrive in your home the same day it leaves its breeder). As a result, your puppy will spend its entire life before it arrives in your home with its breeder and parents. On the other hand, by the time a puppy makes it to a pet store, that puppy may have made several stops, over several weeks, before it even arrived in the store.
- Transparent Access to Puppies: Depending upon where you live, you may not be able to find a purebred or purpose-bred designer puppy at a pet store. In an effort to combat the inhumane treatment of animals, many states actually prohibit pet stores from selling puppies. And, even if you do happen to live in a state that has not yet enacted a pet store ban, it can be nearly impossible for you to independently verify whether a pet store puppy came from a responsible breeder. At Petnow, we are committed to transparency, and you will not only have peace of mind knowing our expert compliance team has screened, vetted and qualified your breeder, but will know everything you want to know about your puppy, including its breeder, its parents and its health history.
- Proprietary Screening of Breeders: Another major difference is our proprietary screening process. At Petnow, we carefully screen all of our breeders before we invite them to join our network and, to stay in our network, breeders need to continue to meet our evolving standards.
- Health Screening & Guarantee: In addition to our compliance efforts, our extensive health protocols are the industry’s best, culminating with a requirement that your puppy pass our proprietary nose-to-tail health exam, administered by a licensed veterinarian, before we will allow your puppy to travel. And, after your puppy arrives home, not only do we provide our exclusive health guarantee, but we are here to support you throughout your puppy journey. We really mean it when we tell you our relationship with you begins, it does not end, when you find your puppy on Petnow.org
