Steve Olson of Roseville said he bought a Cavalier King Charles spaniel puppy from Har Mar Pet Shop in January and has been dealing with expensive veterinarian bills ever since. He said the dog was presented as the healthy pup of AKC-registered parents but it has been battling diarrhea ever since it came home. He did some research on the breeder and discovered that his dog’s parents were not registered after all, and the breeder had blots on its record in other states.
All of these laws, together, will greatly improve the standards of practice in pet shops and guarantee that animals left in the care of a pet store will live a better quality of life while awaiting a permanent home.

Michelson Found Animals Adopt & Shop pet store in Culver City was conceived in support of a single belief: all pets deserve a loving home. Our largest Adopt & Shop location opened its doors on May 12, 2014 in Culver City. Adopt & Shop is truly a one-stop adoption and shopping experience. We are the only nonprofit pet retail store in California that offers pet adoption, dog daycare, dog grooming, dog training, and a complete line of quality and unique products to support happy and health pets. Since our adoptable dogs and cats come from local shelters, every adoption saves the life of an at-risk animal, and gives them an opportunity to live a fulfilling life in a loving home. Adopt & Shop is dedicated to giving every animal the happiness and love they deserve, without exception. We love each of our animals, and get a sense of fulfillment every time we see them placed in the perfect home.Sales Associate - Sales associates at pet stores generally hold the same responsibilities as entry-level employees working for other types of retailers. Job duties typically include standard retail tasks like moving merchandise onto the sales floor, setting up displays, executing price changes, offering assistance to shoppers, and manning checkout stations as needed. Pet store sales associates also respond to questions regarding the best products for various types of animals and must therefore maintain extensive knowledge about the habits and characteristics of pets in order to provide effective customer service. Unlike employees in traditional retail settings, pet store associates regularly handle or work in close proximity to live animals. In addition to requiring workers to feel comfortable around animals, sales associate jobs available at pet stores often come with flexible schedules and demand evening, weekend, and holiday availability. Pet stores frequently employ high school graduates as sales associates and usually train employees without prior experience. Entry-level sales associate positions typically pay between minimum wage and $10.00 an hour.Because we’re a nonprofit, purchasing from Adopt & Shop helps more than your favorite pet, it helps all pets. Proceeds from our retail sales are reinvested to improve the well-being of animals everywhere.We work in partnership with Metro Animal Care and Control (MACC) to rescue abandoned animals and place them in loving homes. We pull dogs and cats from MACC’s shelter, freeing up much needed space in their facility, and bring them to our Crossroads Pets- Shop & Adopt store, where we provide shelter, food, training, and, of course, lots of love while they await their forever family. If you are looking for a new furry family member, please – you’re bound to fall in love!
