Wish I could give no stars.
The place is grim and gross. Animals just being used to make money and treated as items and not living things.Cages are WAY to small for their resident animals and animals for sale. A chinchilla in a 10 gallon tank? Really? Breeding animals when shelters reovercrowded with kittens, puppies, rabbits, and small animals. Red eared sliders get surrendered everyday because people by them and can't care for them as they get too big and live forever! I am shocked that people rave about this place and think the animals are well taken care of. I clean kennels and cages everyday....I know what clean is! This place is a scum hole and the owners are rude, worthless, RI trash. STOP BREEDING ANIMALS and care for who you have.....DON'T ever board you animal here either! This place is the reason shelter will always have to stay in buisness. I can't stop thinking about how awful this store is and how unprofessional and rude the owners are.

Pure Paradise Pets has a history of animal investigations...one is now ongoing. Their promotion of their little zoo (large alligators and tortoises) reflects antiquated thinking about humane treatment of animals. Animal lovers will be appalled by the conditions these captive and out-of-place animals live in. This place should be boycotted until they clean up and adopt modern humane treatment for all their animals. It is shocking to go in this place. Their puppy mill mentality might attract those who are new to owning a dog, but serious dog enthusiasts will be sickened by their breeding-for-profit practices. This place does everything wrong by modern standards of humane treatment of animals. Go see (and smell) for yourself if you don't beleive me! The place is shocking in its cruelty.

This place should be boycotted by those who are truly interested in humane treatment of animals. The captive ""zoo"" animals in small enclosures are enough to make us run to our congressmen. Their mentality on many issues (such as puppy breeding) is very outdated and opposed to modern thinking about humane animal treatment. The place should be boycotted. Support your local animal shelter instead and really help a dog!
This pet store is one of the best in RI! Their products are always fresh and within expiration dates. The staff is cheerful, friendly and always very accomodating and willing to order specidied products for their customers . As a owner of 2 parrots and a feline, I am very picky about fresh food for my pets, but I don't have to worry about my purchases at Pure Paradise.
