Both the PetSmart Luv-A-Pet Center on and on house adoptable VBSPCA cats. The Virginia Beach SPCA prefers to send adult cats to the adoption center because there are so many of them looking for a home, and it is hard for them to compete for affection from people at the shelter when there are hundreds of little kittens hanging around!Rescue Worker.... what is your problem? Where do you get the idea that the children were running around screaming? The dog bit her OLDER child while she was attempting to brush him... it's not like they were chasing the dog around with broomsticks, screaming their heads off. Have some compassion. Another thing.... that does not give the company the right to withhold the animal AND the money from the owners. Their return policy was not honored, and at NO time is it acceptable for an employee of a company to fight (verbally or physically) with a customer. This company is terrible and it speaks volumes to the kind of people that work at these shelters AND at Petsmart.... my family recent adopted a dog from a shelter (I have 2 kids, I guess I should be ineligible too, right?) and we were told that the dog was in perfect health and 100% caught up on shots and physicals. Well, turns out this was a TOTAL LIE. The dog had severe Kennel cough, malnourishment and was very much going to die if we didn't intervene... We had to take the dog to a vet during hours that the shelter was closed and then the shelter REFUSED to reimburse us because we didn't use their shady, crappy vets they have on payroll. These pet adoption agencies don't work for profit, so they can really care less about YOU OR THE ANIMALS, it's sick and saddening to see that this is how most people get their pets. My recommendation is to buy your pets from a well-known, private breeder where you can be confident they were loved and well cared for, never again will I adopt....
