My son has been taking care of the neighbor’s dogs and then he started liking them and wanted his own. My three kids also asked me for a dog and wanted a Christmas gift. We went first to New Jersey where they were giving dogs for adoption. But, those dogs didn’t get along with my kids, so we had to go over to Worldwide Puppies & Kittens store.
It was easy to pick out a puppy because they have a lot of beautiful dogs and puppies over there. But if we want something good, we have to spend money. My kids got close to a beagle. They wanted one for each one, but I can't afford to get so many. So we decided to get the beagle. Because we never had a puppy or dog, Worldwide Puppies & Kittens has helped us a lot in telling me about how to take care of the puppy. They also gave us a CD, books, and a nice doctor who would explain anything we want to know. So whatever we want to know, we ask.
We named the puppy Peter Barker because he barks so much and one of my sons likes Spiderman while the my other girl likes Peter Pan. I'm in love with that little guy. Every time I come in, he comes out and starts moving the stairs. It's very nice to have some new life in our family. Everybody watches the dog eat and looks for him many times a day. They're very busy with that dog.
I had wanted a puppy for a long time and I wanted one that is hypoallergenic. Worldwide Puppies & Kittens is close to my house, so I stopped in. When I made the purchase, I filled out a paperwork and I was approved, so I financed the puppy. He is good and is very cute, but he definitely has some gastro issue. Nevertheless, he is a very nice addition to our family.
We were looking for a brother for the dog that we had at home and I was looking around for a while. I wanted to adopt but I was looking for a very specific kind of dog and none of the rescues really had anything, and a couple of other places that I looked at were just being very expensive. I understand it's for certifications, but not everybody can afford these kinds of animals, especially for that amount of money. With Worldwide it was a little bit easier to make it happen. The fact that people could do it on a payment plan and that they offer financing is definitely good, especially compared to a lot of other breeders. Their pricing wasn't over budget and they could definitely work with you.
Also, they were very local for me. I live in the town next over so it wasn't that far of a drive to get to them. The ladies were very helpful too. They were able to answer any questions that I had. The place is very clean and I saw how they take care of the dogs. I went in window shopping at first. I looked at all the different puppies that they had and then I saw one of the puppies and his brother in the window. I asked one of the workers if I could look at both of them. I spent a good almost hour getting to know both of them, but his brother kind of stayed while Milo, the one I ended up with, went straight for me. I worked with him for a little bit and fell in love with him. He's an energetic, active and feisty Puggle. My other dog is very big but for a little guy, Milo definitely could hold his own.
My wife and I wanted a specific breed of cat and we're not opposed to adopting an animal. I searched online and Worldwide Puppies & Kittens had good reviews. It's also the nearest place to get a decent cat so we went there. We weren’t planning on buying that day but we saw the cat and we got it. However, the day after, we noticed everything went way down, her whole attitude, and she was getting super lethargic. So, we brought her to a 24-hour vet and the doctor held the cat for five days at the hospital. They treated her with antibiotics and IV treatments. When we got her there, apparently she had a fever. So, she wasn’t doing so good.
The vet said that usually happens when you buy from a store. Their immune system goes in shock because they were taken out of their environment that they are used to being in. The vet told me to ask Worldwide if there was any kind of sickness going on amongst the animals. When I initially purchased the cat, I saw that the cat next door to her looked sickly and they were very lethargic. But of course, Worldwide wouldn't say anything about it if there was anything. They weren’t refusing but they weren’t also admitting everything. They said it could be overstimulation. In their agreement when you purchase an animal, all charges are covered on their behalf up to 14 days after the initial purchase and they did honor their agreement. In the end, the cat recovered. She's a healthy cat.
Buying that cat changed our life for the better. It's putting the family aspect together and it makes being home a lot easier. My wife is from Italy so we're going through the immigration process and for a while, she wasn’t able to work. So, having a cat in the house really made things way better. The reps were good in the pet store. They weren’t forcing you to buy the cat, which is nice. Because usually, when you go to a pet store, they shove the cat in your face and they make it so awkward. But they were totally relaxed when we got there and it was a good experience. I'd tell my friends to go to Worldwide and check out their animals.
I wanted to get a puppy for my wife because she wanted to have one. I saw a Labrador online and I liked it. It's a smart dog. Worldwide Puppies & Kittens happen to have a Labrador available so I got it.
We're very happy with the kitten that we got from Worldwide Puppies and Kittens. The only thing they could improve on is when I called the day before, they told me that their kittens range from $900 to $1,500. When we got there and my mom picked out the kitten, all of a sudden it was $3,000. I could understand not being able to give an exact price when I called, but when they tell me they range between $900 and $1,500 and all of a sudden I pay $3,000 out the door with a kitten, I wasn’t happy with that. It was very upsetting but at that point, I was with my mom and she already liked the kitten. If she found out how much I had paid for the kitten, she'd wring my neck.
A purebred is a purebred but in the end, they're still kittens and puppies. I personally don’t think any kitten or puppy should cost $3,000 so I definitely will not recommend it. But the kitten is beautiful. I would never, in a million years, expect my mom to bond with an animal like that. It's almost amazing watching her smile. She's in a good great mood all the time and they're taking naps together.

Overall, Worldwide was great. Naomi, the girl who helped us, was amazing. However, the pet we got was not a 100% which is a little upsetting for $4,000 that we paid for him but we love him already and he's our child so at this point, we're already rolling it. He has parasites and also has ulcers on his tongue. We got him on Sunday and we took him to the vet on Wednesday and they told us all this information. His stool sample came back and there are parasites as well in it. And so, we got an antibiotic. I called Naomi and gave her a heads-up. The vet told us that the antibiotics were covered in it. The stool sample, however, that is a routine thing that the vet told us that Worldwide Puppies did not cover. So that and the medication, we wound up having to pay out of pocket, which isn't a big deal, it's just 50 bucks for the stool sample.
I've already referred about three of my friends to go just simply to Worldwide because there's not a lot of places in New York where you can buy a cat that are bred nice and then full bred. One of them purchased a cat already with them and another one is going to take a look, if not this week, next week. I definitely would refer it because of the customer service. But again, maybe we just got a lemon, but he's great overall so it's not a big deal.
My dog died and I wanted to adopt, but that never worked out. I walked into Worldwide Puppies & Kittens where I liked a Yorkie. I grabbed him and said it was the one. Usually, pet stores buy the dogs and want them out, but this one is built well. Our Hershey is a good dog and he's cute. He's five months old. What pissed me off though was they said at the store that they're going to try to give us a free bag of food. They mix this kind of brand, wet food in the dry food, and it cost $1.29. I asked if they could throw that in with the $3000, but the girl there said they couldn’t do that. That was very odd and really annoying since I just spent $3000 on the dog. Other than that, I was satisfied.
We have been talking about getting a cat for some time. We looked around for a hypoallergenic cat and Worldwide Puppies and Kittens had some. We originally went in for the Russian Blue kittens. I called Worldwide and they had Russian Blue but they didn’t want to discuss prices over the phone which I understand. I went over to them, I drove an hour away and when I got there, they had sold the kitten half an hour prior to me walking in through the door.
The rep knew that I was looking for hypoallergenic cats so she showed me the Snow Bengals. She gave us one of the kittens and I let my children play with her and my daughter fell in love with her. Her name is Sasha now. But for some reason, her sister Mia was watching me from the kennel, staring me down. I asked the rep if I could see the other kitten but she said that kitten isn't as friendly as Sasha. I told her Sasha is not that friendly either because she's so shy. So, she brought her in and as soon as her sister Mia started rubbing on my leg, she was coming to me. So, we ended up with the two of them. They're very active and very friendly. We fell in love with them. They were awesome and I don’t regret getting them. They're fitting in great in the house. When I'm making their food, they're meowing and then one comes from one side, distracts me and then the other one jumps up on the counter. They are double trouble. They are like a tag team.
I tried to talk to Worldwide about giving me a discount because we were purchasing two kittens but I did not receive any. I did go on their financing plan because they were expensive. That's why they don’t discuss the prices over the phone. The financing process was simple and filling up the paperwork went smoothly. As far as the rate, I don’t intend on waiting for the full amount of time that they're giving me to pay it off. I want to pay it prior. Overall, it was a great experience and I would recommend them.
I love cats but where I lived before, I wasn't able to have them. Now that I have moved, I can have cats and the first thing I got for myself were two new kittens. Worldwide Puppies & Kittens had nice people who helped me. They sat with us and let us pick out whatever we wanted. Once I picked my kittens, they let us play with the kittens and sit with them for a while until we made a decision. It was a nice process. I named the kittens Spike and Wilma and they were a new addition to the family. When we first came home, both of them had a respiratory infection. I took them to the 24-hour vet associated with Worldwide Puppies & Kittens and they took care of that. The cats are three and a half months now and I love them. They are playful and really good. They like giving rubs and cuddles.
My daughter wanted to have an animal, but she's scared of dogs. We decided to get a cat and I asked Worldwide Puppies & Kittens for a specific cat and they said they had it there. By the time I got there, the cat wasn't there, but I saw a Persian Himalayan cat which I liked so I got it. When I came to pick it up, I ended up getting a second cat. It was a regular Persian. We called them Wally and Luna, and one was born October 6 while the other on October 15.
The people at Worldwide were helpful and their hospitality was good. Whichever one I was really interested in, they took it out and put other kittens in the little room. They let me play with the cat and see if I liked them and it worked out well. Their process was really easy. Also, they set us up with a veterinarian and we made our appointment right then and there so everything was convenient.
On the other hand, before the appointment came up, Luna got a cold. We walked into a veterinarian and they checked both cats. They said both have colds and Wally has a heart problem. They said that Worldwide should have told us about that before we bought them and they should rectify it. When I bought the cats, I signed off that they were supposed to be 100% healthy. I have set up an appointment with their doctor and see what they want to do from there. Other than that, my daughter loves the cats and she's fixated on them. She's the only child so, it's like having a brother and a sister.
My wife had always been dreaming about a cat or a dog then my kids also asked me if they could get a puppy. Finally, after years, we decided to get a cat. We were looking at the cats online and found Worldwide Puppies & Kittens through a website. We stopped by their store and a girl brought the cats to a small room where my wife played with them. The girl explained when a kitty was born and how old he/she was. My wife chose one and the girl told us about financing but I decided to pay the full amount. The cat was a gift for my wife and she has been crazy about it and has been jumping around all day about it. She and my kids are happy which is the most important thing.
My wife has a sister who bought a puppy from Worldwide Puppies & Kittens, so her sister took her there to see the puppies. They had little rooms that you could go to if you pick an animal that you like, hang out with them for a while, see how you feel about them and how they feel about you as well. Eventually, we got a different dog since the price was way too much and we saw Blue who was $1000 less but was so cute. He’s a Doxiepoo and he was 12 weeks when we got him. He had blue eyes and that was the big selling point for us.
However, we didn't realize that all dogs are usually born with blue eyes then they change colors. The girl who was helping us heard us raving about it but didn’t tell us. It wouldn't have stopped us from getting him, but it was a bit of an annoyance because the dog's name is Blue based on the eyes and now they’re turning brown. Also, he got a kennel cough the first night he got home so we had to take him to the vet a couple of times. We got the antibiotics, gave it to him and he’s doing pretty well now.
It also took some adjustments to our schedules to be able to do things in the house and we got to puppy-proof it wherever we get. He's teething right now so he wants everything in his mouth. It's hard to get him to eat his food, though. I bought a bunch of different food and he won't eat the dry food at all except as a snack. He's supposed to eat four times a day but he just eats when he feels like it. If I feed it to him with a spoon or off my finger, he would eat it all day. But the vets say not to because that would be him training us to do it. If I leave it in the bowl, it may take him four to five hours to eat half of it. On the other hand, he eats the wet food and he's fitting in pretty well. We’ve also been training him and he’s ridiculous. He's about a foot long and half of that is hair, looking like a little furball and a gerbil. He's great.
I got my beautiful baby from Worldwide Puppies and Kittens. He’s the cutest and he's so beautiful that it’s insane. I couldn’t believe something so pretty existed that day. He was at the bottom, in one of the cages and he started meowing and meowing at my ex-boyfriend. When I saw him, I wasn’t letting him go. I already had a black cat so I felt like I need another one so they can keep each other company. We wanted to get a white Persian but we ended up with a beige Scottish Fold. I even went to other stores that day but none of them had a lot going on in stock while Worldwide Puppies and Kittens had a really good selection for kittens.
We told them we liked the Scottish Fold so they gave him to us in a room to play with. They told us they would give us the information later because it was feeding time and they had to feed all the puppies and kittens, which wasn't a problem. But while that happened, I asked them if it was a boy or a girl and they made a mistake. They thought it was a girl but when they took the paperwork out after they were done feeding everybody, they realized it was actually a boy. He was an expensive kitten too. I didn't really plan to spend that much money but I fell in love with him. It was like love at first sight. He's really a calm beauty. He's the best thing ever and he's my life.
I got a kitten from the closest pet store, Worldwide Puppies and Kittens. The staff assisted us in taking a few cats out of the cage and they let me play with them. If I had any questions about the breed, they answered. There were also puppies there and they were quite loud and aggressive. I could barely hear anything. Otherwise, the experience was great. All the puppies and kittens were a little bit overpriced but we also compared them to a bunch of other places around. My kitten was worth it and I paid in full. When I made my purchase, she wasn't in the best state of health but they included vet care. I brought her to the vet and she's doing well now. Overall, if one is willing to pay the money then Worldwide Puppies and Kittens have a great selection.
My fiance drives a truck for a living. He kept driving by Worldwide Puppies and Kittens and he’d stop at the light and the dog kept looking at him. So, he went in and checked out the dog. He went back a couple of times then bought her. The puppy's name is Jasmine and she’s a Miniature Poodle. She’s very sweet and very active. She ran around and stole my Christmas tree set and went walking off into another room with it. Worldwide Puppies and Kittens had a very nice program where we just went to the vet and the first visit was free and a lot of her shots were taken care of because it was part of the package. That was great and the vet was wonderful too.
I got a puppy from Worldwide Puppies & Kittens for my daughter after years of her begging. Their reps are very positive and informative. They didn't place one dog on the other and they let us see the different puppies that they have. They also made us feel that they would give us enough information that would make us comfortable with our puppy ownership.
I have purchased other puppies from Worldwide Puppies & Kittens before. This last time, I got was a Rottweiler. He’s one year old and his name is Yogi. The owner is great and does a good job at running her shop. I went in there, spent a lot of time in one of the rooms and I made the decision from there. It was a little bit of a process to add a new dog to the family but he's fully trained now.
I was very frustrated trying to get a Russian Blue Kitten. One of my clients told me about Worldwide Puppies & Kittens and I checked them out. Their breeder seemed trained and they had Russian Blues for 20 years. So I went to see them and their Russian Blues were priced about three or four times higher than the average. But I have a business where I can't have a cat that has any allergy capacities because I have a medico-personal training business and I have my animals roam around. Their reps went over all the papers with me properly and during the choosing process, I sat and played with the kittens in the room. I wanted a cat that was going to be little more like a lap-type cat and I have a tendency to pick the runt. It was hard to make a decision so the first time I sat with them, I had two or three.
I'm a medical professional and I felt that the cats I bought were a bit early to be away from the mom because both the kittens ended up in the hospital within a week. It cost a lot of money to take them to the emergency room. They were emotionally not that set up for a strange environment and their immune systems were very low. One kitten was only a pound and a half and the other kitten was only one pound. But there was nothing I could do. Also, neither eyes of my cats turned blue so I couldn't guarantee that they're 100% Russian Blues. I know these animals very well and they have a lot of the same character. But the the bottom line is a 100% Russian Blue will turn green eyes in about six months.
I love the animals and they're wonderful. I named my young girl, the first one I got, Lily, and my second one Leo. They lay with me and I took my first selfie yesterday with Leo. I have to get papers for him and I was ready to go over there and find out why I didn't get his breeding papers. I would like to talk to the breeder about the animals, too. No matter where you look on the Internet, you won't see anything higher than $1000, and I paid over $3000. That is a lot of money for a cat but I don't mind paying money. I just want to get what I paid for and be assured that it's 100% what it is.
We had intentions of looking for a Himalayan or a Ragdoll or a Siamese cat. But when I saw that the prices for the cats were so expensive at $1,900 for one, I decided to see what the dog options were. We saw a Golden Retriever but because we had a dog in the past and had to put her down, I decided to go with a breed that I always wanted and something to secure the house properly. So we got a Rottweiler from Worldwide Puppies & Kittens and named him Zeus. He was born July 14th and he was three months when we got him. Puppies are a handful but it's not our first puppy, so we are accustomed to the housebreaking and crate training. We understand that it's a tedious process and we have to be on top of him. Also, in his 5th month, we're going to bring him to a trainer who will bore him for two weeks and teach him the proper training that we cannot offer. It will be worthwhile especially for his breed because he's aggressive.
However, I had a chance to look into the pedigree when I received the certificate from AKC. I looked into the reviews about the breeder where Zeus came from and a lot of people complained that it was a puppy mill. On the other hand, the person who assisted us with the acquisition was extremely knowledgeable in all the breeds and all the questions that we had regardless of what animal we were considering at that time. I’m extremely happy with Worldwide Puppies & Kittens, and I would certainly recommend them.
I was interested in a Ragdoll cat but there were none anywhere in Jersey where I live. So I traveled all the way to where Worldwide Puppies & Kittens is and purchased my cat there, the only Ragdoll at the store. His name is Max and he’s six months now. He's a bundle of joy and really chubby compared to other Ragdolls but he's a healthy boy. The customer service at Worldwide was really good. They helped me find a cat on the spot and they helped me with the payment. It was a good experience and I would recommend a lot of my friends to go to Worldwide if they would like to make the travel.
I got a beagle from Worldwide Puppies & Kittens and it's been a great experience. They also gave us vet names on where to get her checked. I wasn't so happy with one vet that I went to though. The doctor was great, however, her assistant was very pushy. Since the puppy needed several shots, the next time I went to the vet, I told them I was only interested in what was provided through the Puppies & Kittens place. The way the assistant sneakily worded it made it sound like everything was included. Then all of a sudden I get this $300 bill. But I'm very happy that I went to Worldwide Puppies & Kittens, and I love my dog.
We have always wanted to have a dog but we're very busy people so a cat was better. I googled where we could buy a cat in New York and Worldwide Puppies & Kittens came up. They had a good amount of cats to pick from. We wanted a Scottish Fold because of the allergy level on them. There were a lot that were a little less allergenic than other cats. We were playing with a couple of cats but the one we got seemed to be the best. She was the youngest one there.
Being in the military, I was given a discount and I paid cash since I don't take loans. Those in Worldwide were very knowledgeable people and were great all around. They were happy to tell us everything about the animal and we could tell that they care about the type of facility they are, who’s coming in and who’s getting animals. It wasn't like they were just trying to get rid of the animals. Our cat's name is Snowflake because she's light and looks like a snowflake. She was born in March and she's almost eight months. I've had other cats, but she's amazing and we love her. It's a breath of fresh air when I come home at the end of the day. My life changed with her.
I got two daughters who wanted a dog for a while and since I've had dogs when I was younger, I finally decided to do it. My daughters were looking at all the different places we'd go to and then they were set on the dog we picked from Worldwide Puppies & Kittens. I paid the portal and everything was smooth in the process of choosing the puppy. The staff has been courteous and attentive, and the experience has been pleasant. Our puppy is a German Shepherd and he's a good boy and listens well. My daughter has great command on him, better than me. He's playful, over-energetic sometimes, gets along well with other dogs and goes to the dog park a lot. Since he came, I think I had another child. I work a lot and I'm there the least, so I wish I could get home more often and spend more time with him.
I was looking for a certain breed (Russian Blue kitten) and Worldwide Puppies & Kittens had it. They also had the reviews. I went there and they put me in a room with him to play with him, and I did. And then I decided to take him home. They showered him right there and clipped his nails. They told me everything that I need for him. Everything went well.
I got a kitten from Worldwide Puppies & Kittens a couple of years ago. We thought of getting a puppy there, too, because I loved the cats. He’s a Bullmastiff. Worldwide Puppies & Kittens went over things with us and were very thorough through everything - the process, the paperwork, and how to take care of the puppy. I'm very happy. It’s a clean place and they have nice people. The animals they have are healthy.
We bought a Russian Blue kitten from Worldwide Puppies & Kittens because we were looking for this specific breed. We walked into the store and it was clean. My wife then started looking at all the different kittens. She found a couple that she liked, so they set us up in the little playpen they had. They gave us as much time as we needed and they answered any questions my wife had. When we decided we would like to purchase a kitten, they walked us basically through everything, all the paperworks and setting up the first vet appointment. They made it really, really easy.
We were very happy with the store, the salespeople, and the fact that the vets were covering for the first year. When we wanted a second cat to keep it company, we came back to get a second cat. The animals we got were healthy. Both cats, both the male and the female we got, have been the most affectionate cats we've ever seen. They like to just sit on your lap or on your shoulder.
My daughter was interested in getting a puppy for the longest time. I went to Worldwide Puppies & Kittens to see what different breeds they had. I wasn't expecting to buy a puppy when I went in there. They had a breed that my daughter was interested in getting, a Shih Tzu and they have two of them. When we took a look at them, they were adorable. They were a brother and a sister. The brother was aggressive in my perspective so I decided to go with the one that I thought was a little calmer, which is a great choice. We picked her up and looked her over, and she seemed peaceful. She's a white and gold Shih Tzu. We named it Broadway. She's playful but extremely well-behaved and she's a perfect addition to the family.
It's like having another baby in the house because we got to give her vitamins. Then we went to take her to the vet. We just got to be mindful that when we leave the house, we want to come home at a decent time so we get to spend time with her. We also got her groomed for the first time today. I called Worldwide back to ask some questions at their encouragement and they were very helpful. They gave us good advice in terms of making sure that we don't exhaust her because she's a puppy and making sure that what you do when she makes mistakes, pees or poops outside of her Wee Wee pad, how to handle that and to train her to go with the Wee Wee pad. I highly recommend the store and if I were to buy another puppy, Worldwide would be the first place I go to.
I have some friends who were telling me about Worldwide Puppies & Kittens so I got a Lancashire sub-breed poodle from them. He's name is Benjie, he's 14 years old now and he's given me a lot of responsibility. I love Worldwide Puppies & Kittens. They have very nice people and they take care of my dog. He's so happy when I take him to them but when I used to take him to some other place, he comes out very sad.
I love the dog that I got from Worldwide Puppies & Kittens. He's great but I didn't get some paper or any of the paperwork for his mother and father. He also had worms and they sent me to some vet who was terrible. Plus, I paid $2,300 for the dog but the amount stated in the receipt when I checked it was $2,780 after tax. I gave them cash that day and they couldn't even throw in a free leash or collar. I didn't like their people or their service and I would never advise anyone to go there.
I got a new apartment and they only allowed a cat, so I got a Siamese cat from Worldwide Puppies & Kittens. I used to live in East Meadow and Worldwide was the closest location. I and my boyfriend went there and chose the youngest cat. We wanted to start raising it from a younger age rather than getting an older cat. We got the cat on August 30th. It was actually our second time going there. We visited the store months before just to give us a heads up on how the process works as far as getting a cat and everyone was pretty helpful. The reps were great.
