UPDATE on Village Pets from April 2007‎
Village Pets has been under new ownership for the past 6 months or so. My husband and I have been checking them out pretty frequently to see how things are going with the animals. It is looking SO much better. The lizards have appropriate lighting, as do all the reptiles, the small animals (ferrets, rabbits, etc) all have clean cages and aren't over-crowded. It's not perfect yet, there are always a few cages with low or no water, but the shop stays busy, so I can understand if he can't refill a dish immediately. The new owner has been fairly knowledgeable and helpful. So far it seems like things are looking up for the shop and the animals, and that's always great to see. I could now feel comfortable recommending someone to check out Village Pets.‎

Poor Owner Knowledge, Pets all in distress.
First off, when I walked in there was a Wallaby running loose around the store which made me suspicious. I viewed some of his reptiles and noticed that NONE of his lizards had UVB lighting (without UVB lighting they cannot properly metabolize calcium. Bone spurs, as well as bone fusing, most commonly spinal and tail fusing, as well as hip displasia WILL occur without UVB light.) All of his snakes except for his Anaconda were in enclosures too small, with dirty substrate (bedding), no hides (which causes major stress to most reptiles sometimes resulting in death), and the few snakes that were shedding were obviously not kept at a proper humidity level seeing as they were all partial shed with old skin patches clinging to their bodies. Any of his heat lamps that he apparently could not afford proper bulbs for had normal house bulbs in them which produces a stretch of visible light spectrum that is harmful to reptiles eyes. When I confronted the store manager about the lack of UVB lighting on his baby Iguanas (which are rapidly growing and need a high supply of metabolized calcium for proper bone growth he first told me that they did have a UVB light, and being a learned herp lover I had recognized the bulb he was using as a sun glo T-rex bulb. He then proceded to show me a box which he insisted said it was a UVB producing bulb (note the box listed only UVA(UVB bulbs must have a self ballasted mercury halide bulb inside the outer bulb and are substantially larger) he then saw only the UVA shown on the box and proceeded to tell me that it was Just as good When I tried to explain it to him he scoffed and said the he has been dealing with reptiles longer than you (meaning me) have my response was then you should know more about the animals you're trying to sell and I walked out. having 11 snakes (8 different breeds) a Bearded Dragon, an Iguana, and a healthy thirst f

better than some but not great by Diana S. at InsiderPages
Village Pets is a tiny pet store without much variety. Heavy on reptiles, fish and rodents. limited accesorys and supplys.
The place is generaly clean and the staff helpful and the prices are competitive with other stores in the area. I would need to go in for somthing specific to frequent this pet store, it is always good to support local small buisnesses over the larger chain stores though.
