Default Ethical Pet Shops

There are pet shops and there ARE pet shops. It is up to us to decide which pet shop we want to buy from. It is our money, and our choice.

For me, I would support only ethical pet shops, even if they are located far away from my home.

I am posting this because I read in another thread that a member here suggested that we open a thread to discuss ethical pet shops.

I shall start here with one shop first.

I would like to recommend Pet Epicure, at Taman Melawati, Ampang.

Address: No. 16, Jalan Bandar 2, Taman Melawati
email address is petepicure@gmail.com
Web site: http://petepicure.wordpress.com/

The proprietor is Alicia Ling Horsley. You can reach her at reach on 012- 331 3318 or 012- 905 9010.

Yup, let's share positive things. I heard of one good, ethical pet shop in Sri Hartamas, but I don't remember the name. I'll do my rounds this weekend and next to find out more.

Hi Moggies,

I'm not sure about you, but for me, an ethical shop (not only pet shop) is one that is honest. That means, they don't hide any relevant info from their customers, and they give their honest opinion at all times, even if it means losing a sale.

I apply this rule to all kinds of shops I go to, e.g. hair salons/opticians /restaurant/etc, not only pet shops. :)

Sillylupie,
I think is good to have this thread, it can let public know more information Ethical Pet Shops. Since we have read many Pet Shop N Clinic from Hall of Shame was hunting you mind and soul.

I heard from my KL friend said this pet shop is great! Maybe one should visit Alicia Ling Horsley and her pet shop.

Yup, it's a great pet shop, Clement, run by great ladies. Amy, Alicia's mum, is a great person. She was the one who recommended Addiction to me when I asked if there's any cat food that don't contain grains & fillers.

Staff there are very friendly & most important, they are all animal luvers , help to look for adopters too.

Cages there are all very clean & spacious & all stainless steels, should have visit their animal boarding room, big, spacious & clean, no cages, but only stainless steel play pans, they will allow dogs to come out for walk and play everyday.


Name of the pet shop is:-

Global Pets

Since Indy eats a lot, either Indy is super hyper or has a high metabolism rate. Kenggy is fatter than ever.

If you are looking for cat products, this pet shop has a large selection, from food, litter to toys. It has everything a cat needs and the price is reasonable. Also, the owner & wife are genuine animal lovers and they are always rescuing strays.

This is the name & address of the pet shop at Sri Petaling.

Home Pet Food & Care
41 Jalan 1/149J,
Bandar Baru Seri Petaling,
57000 Kuala Lumpur.
Tel : +603 9059 3191

A few doors away is a pet clinic, but I can't comment on it as I've never patronised the clinic. I only patronize the pet shop.

Look for Jimmy or Angela at the pet shop.

Hey guys....pls check this place out..
I ve been patronizing WINNER PET PLAZA in TTDI, .....for 5+ years
nope....never seen any cats/dogs for sale there....
Infact, I DID myself asked them *any kittens for sale here ? Or do you know anybody who wants to sell ?* You know whats the answer ?
*No....but there are cute ones at the back you could adopt for free...pls help yourself to one or two, maybe 3..* And I was like..... MALUUUUU !!!!!

There are rescued cats at the back....some with their mommy still suckling.
I noticed how clean the back area has been kept. Myself and my dotter fifi normally spend sometime there playing with the cats, before start filling our kart, without having to close our nose

One day, some idiots simply left five kittens in a shoe box at the shop's entrance. The lady who normally works morning shift, was calling the vet *healing pet, my vet also laaa..* when I was around buying cat food, she was on the phone asking if they could do something about the kittens. The kittens were still very young. With professional care, they may survive. And...later the kittens were rushed to the vet.

WINNER PETS PLAZA
No 3, Jln Tun Mohd Fuad 3
Tmn Tun Dr Ismail
60000 KL

TEL : 03-7727 8469, Fax : 03-7729 4145

Note : next to KFC TTDI
