Welcome to Pet Watch New Jersey
Welcome to Pet Watch NJ where, if you're thinking about adding a dog or cat to your family and have questions on how to find a reputable source, we may have the answers for you.
We care about animals, but we also care about keeping them and YOU, the consumer, or potential adopters, out of harm's way. Unscrupulous pet dealers are constantly on the lookout for unsuspecting victims they can easily scam, defraud, and bully into buying or adopting a puppy or kitten that may have health and behavioral issues. You need to know the facts BEFORE you close the deal, before you walk out of a pet shop, breeder's home, or pet supply shop with a "rescued" puppy.
Here's where you'll find answers to some frequently asked questions:
• What's really behind pet dealers' claims?
• Is that rescue a puppy flipper or the real deal?
• How does the pet lemon law protect me and my dog or cat?
• Does New Jersey have puppy mills?
• Are there really Amish puppy mills?
• Why does my neighbor have dozens of cats or dogs in her home?
• What's the difference between a breeder and a broker?
