I was out in Bayer's Lake today to buy my dog food and had to drive further down in the same mall to find Global Pet's - they've moved to a larger space! This is proof positive that a pet store does NOT need to sell live animals - ie PUPPIES from PUPPY MILLS and BACK YARD BREEDERS like other local pet stores do - in order to be a successful business model - locally and I'm sure in other places in Nova Scotia and everywhere else, too. All you have to do is support your local animal community by being hugely philanthropic - like Global Pets is - and providing an excellent quality of products in your store. Congratulations to owners Lucie Larochelle and thomas Affeld and all the staff!
While I was there - since I wasn't planning on finding a nice, bright new store - I only had my blackberry with me - I thought I'd take a couple photos of a some neat things I saw in the store - who knew you could buy "Pet Head" products locally? I didn't! Now we can all dye our white dog's hair pink - and do with something that won't taste bad when they lick themselves! Yea!
I also noticed a couple of those "Pet Pheromone" kits there - for dogs and cats - so if you're into that type of stuff - Global Pets have them! I took a photo of that because I was emailed by someone in the last couple of weeks looking for one - so whoever was emailing me about them - go to Global!
And they also have the original "Peticure" Dremel type tooly things - I bought one of the knock-offs on the internet - and all my dogs went running from me as fast as they could - so I donated it to an online auction for a local "rescue" - I'm sure these original ones work much better!!
So go spend ALL your money at Global - and NOT at the stores that sell misery and greed in the cages at the back of the store - it's obviously working! Yea!!!
