Hello, Benjamin from Brothers’s Campfire here!
Yesterday, in addition to feeling home on the range where the Para Warthog and Ruger Blackhawk play, we went to Valley Pets and looked around.
The place gets a bad rap from the big box stores, but I have had excellent interaction with the employees the owner, and the former owner. It is a family run place and they take pet care seriously.
Frequently, Valley Pets rehomes animals for folks which is a breath of fresh air. Sometimes it is cost-prohibitive to keep a little friend and finding a place that is safe is always a good idea.
Valley Pets is always down for a project.
One time, I was dabbling in raising mealworms for chickens and the owner cut me a deal on an enormous bulk order of them.
Initially, my chicken coop had a kitchenette, but they had too many parties and I had to get rid of it.
Have you ever seen a chicken cook mealworms? It is hard for them to use a spatula, but they managed.
I have ducks now, because chickens are destructive.
With ducks, who are a little calmer, I am inclined to shop at Valley Pets more frequently.
I purchase feeder fish for my ducks and it is with regret that I cannot keep them as they are healthy and well-fed. Thos is not without flaw however. I had to return one once because it spoke to me.
Water quality is excellent for the 40 plus aquariums and they pay a guy to do clean process tank water, ALL DAY. It is impressive if you ask me and a free zoo to boot. Reading the reviews, I see people are concerned about the temperature inside as there is little air conditioning. It is 90 percent a reptile and fish habitat, silly beans.
I was unable to find a website or I would share it. They do have a Facebook Page, but I don’t have an account thank the Lord.
By the way, nobody payed me for this. I just think they are cool.
