Homeless animals are helpless. They wander all around the city seeking for something to eat and to stay at night or when it is cold. They may be sick and suffer lice. They die in the streets, at the corners. It hurts to watch them. The society establishes shelters for such animals, where they are fed and warmed. These organizations cure them and then try to find homes for the pets. Some organizations sell the animals, others give for free.

Petland. Petland is a privately owned company. The headquarters of the company is based in Chillicothe, Ohio. The company has been on the market since 1967. Today, it is a chain of pet shops in the world. It is the leader in the retail pet industry in the area of animal care. The company also provides staff training programs, in-store animal husbandry systems and community service programs which are aimed at placing homeless pets and curbing pet overpopulation in the right direction.

Petland also offers abound information about the animals, how they tend to live and issues certain guidelines on how to treat them. Petland operates store locations all over the world, in Canada, Chile, France, Japan, and South Africa. Petland provides small animals, tropical and marine fish, reptiles, exotic birds, puppies and kittens. In addition, the company provides a wide range of pet-related services, including consultations on caring for a pet, veterinary help, as well as distribution of pet-related merchandise. One of the most successful programs of Petland is the Adopt-a-pet program.

The clients are not satisfied with the quality of health of the bought pets. It turns out sometimes that animals survived a surgery, for example. And the company refuses to take the pets back or replace them. Some people, for example, look for detailed information about the animals before buying them and the store assistants provide them with misleading facts. The case may be applied to dogs, for example. Usually people are assured that the dogs are of no harm and then it turns out they are aggressive.

These are very common situations in the sphere. It is better to be careful.
