Worst pets store ever people are so rude the new owner seems just as rude and they never feeders you walk in no one acknowledges you then you wait for 5-10 min to find out they don't have them again they always have some kind of excuses why they don't and then they treat you like terrible.
THE OWNER AND HIS ENTIRE FAMILY HAS JUST BEEN CONVICTED ON MANY COUNTS OF ANIMAL CRUELTY. THEY ARE MONSTERS. The Denver Post reports (http://goo.gl/3MS3uU ) 22-year-old Brian Kubic was sentenced Wednesday after previously pleading guilty to misdemeanor animal cruelty.
Prosecutors say kittens, hedgehogs, reptiles and rodents at Jurassic Pets in Thornton were confined in unsanitary conditions without food, water and veterinary care. Some of the animals died and others were euthanized after the shop was raided.
Kubic’s father, Kenneth Kubic, was convicted in May of 18 counts of cruelty to animals; and his mother, Lynn Kubic, pleaded guilty to misdemeanor animal cruelty.
Jurassic Pets continues to operate two stores — the one raided by police in Thornton and another in Lakewood.
This store cannot take care of fish correctly. I came in for a clown loach and no one knew what that was which is a bad sign because they have them in stock there. I eventually found the tank that had one and it had 8-10 dead fish in it and another 8 fish eating the dead fish. The clown loach in the tank was swimming sideways and then tapering off over and over, a sign he is sick or diseased. The other tanks also had many dead fish in them. Fish in tanks with no dead fish (yet) had fish laying on the bottom not moving, also a sign of diseased, poisoned or about to die. Very sad place.

PETA's latest eyewitness investigation, at Willards Rodent Factory, a breeding warehouse, and Jurassic Pets LLC, a pet store in Colorado, revealed horrific conditions, systematic neglect, and the pervasive suffering of thousands of animals. Witnesses found animals languishing and dying in cramped, putrid enclosures filled with days' or weeks' worth of feces—often with the full knowledge of the owners and management. Based on PETA's evidence, the Thornton, Colorado, Police Department executed a search warrant at Jurassic Pets that allowed them to rescue some of the mammals, reptiles, and amphibians there.
Despite having extensive evidence of persistent, widespread cruelty to animals for more than two months, the Adams County, Colorado, Sheriff's Office (ACSO) has not helped the thousands of animals at Willards Rodent Factory, which is owned by Lynn and Kenneth Kubic.
The Kubics and their workers admitted to "whacking" rats and mice—swinging them by the tail and hitting them against surfaces in an effort to kill them. Hundreds of rats and mice drowned at Willards Rodent Factory when the tubs housing them flooded, while others—most frequently those who were ill or injured—were thrown outside to be torn apart by cats.
The Kubics failed to provide effective veterinary care or euthanasia to scores of ill and/or injured animals—including a rat whose face was apparently chewed off, a hedgehog whose infected eye was neglected for so long that it shrank and lost all vision, and reptiles with mucus oozing from their mouths. Thousands of fish and hundreds of other animals perished—with many left to rot alongside live animals—and ailing survivors were routinely thrown into the freezer to die.
Please take a moment today to urge the ACSO to end animal suffering at the Kubics' hands by seizing all animals from Willards Rodent Factory without further delay.
The filthy, stressful conditions uncovered at these facilities are typical of what PETA's investigations of the pet trade have documented again and again. The most important thing that you can do to help end this cruelty is to refuse to shop at stores that sell live animals.
Thank you for your compassion for animals and for your willingness to take action.

This store is filthy and the animals are not will taking care of. Plus to make matters worse the bearded dragon I had purchased as a pet had obviously never been handled and had some severe temperament issues and when I had discussed it with the store the lady laughed at me and took it as a joke. Not only is the store filthy the people who work the store are idiots and have no clue how to handle these petand they let their children run around with the snacks not very smart shop somewhere else!
