I have been to this pet shop many times. I have bought 2 parrot fish that were babies and now are huge and healthy. Also started another fish tank 2 months ago have bought 8 fish, everyone is alive and doing well. For anyone that has been in a pet shop and had the variety th...moreat they have you have to realize that it is almost impossible to have not animal scents as all animals especially exoctic have their own usual scent as to mark. This is a family owned business so not only do they have this shop, they raise most of the animals so at least you know the pet has not come from a puppy mill, (this I know personally as I have bought several puppies and am looking forward to the next litter of small chihuahua, (hopefully blue/white small female. I have never seen dead animals, maybe a fish or two but everywhere fish are sold some will die. In fact this is the only place I will ever get a pet from except perhaps a shelter as I have 4 shelter animals not. I also had a parrot from there and would recommend and have to people or friends that are looking for some animal in particular. Sounds like some people need to get off their high horse and really think how hard it is to run a pet shop and raise a family and incase you never met their children they are the most polite and helpful children I have met in a long time.

My family are pet lovers. Every time we go anywhere we always check out the pet stores in the different towns. We frequent the Sevierville area several times during the year. We have been visiting this pet store for over 10 years and have ALWAYS found the pets well taken car...moree of. I know from experience that any place with multiple pets is going to have little oder first thing in the morning when they open up. I have personally been there first thing when they open up. Yes, some animals messed through the night. That is no surprise. They get right to clean up in order of importance. Some of the people stating all these negative responses are setting themselves up for slander liability. I have been to many pet stores in various states and this one ranks near the top! The owners genuinely care for their pets. Check out a zoo first thing in the morning and see some messes. Most don't smell too bad because they are outside. This isn't like a chain pet store that has fifty employees. I love this pet store and will keep coming back when we visit this area. They do an excellent job!view less
I go to this pet store frequently and went recently to purchase a few more fish. The animals are very well taken care of and maintained. My fish have adjusted well and are very healthy. I would highly recommend visiting and purchasing your next pet from here.
