Welcome to heritage-pets.com
"raising specialty pets since 1986"
Heritage-pets.com is not a pet store. We are breeders who work closely with a small select group of
specialized pet hobbyists, who also enjoy breeding unusual pets. We like to share information and educate people with hope
that everyone will make a well thought out decision, before purchasing a new pet. If you are considering a specialist animal
as a pet, our site is full of helpful information that might help you decide if it is the right pet for you. Once you have
had time to review our site if you have any questions, don’ t hesitate to email us. If we can, we will do our best to
help and address your concerns.
Occasionally we offer pets for sale but we are not a pet store. We do not sell any pet supplies.
Nobody can be everything to everyone and therefore we believe there should be an obvious distinction between a breeder
and a pet store. Breeding and raising pets takes a lot of time and is a huge commitment and therefore in our opinion, breeders
need to remain 100% focused on caring for their pets and educating others regarding responsible pet care.
In our opinion, pet stores need to focus and educate the consumer about pet supplies and leave the sale of live animals
to the breeders. Unlike department stores or grocery stores, professional pet supply stores offer a far better selection of
products, better hours of operation and they can usually special order specific items and get you whatever it is that you
are hoping to find.
Most educated breeders are quite willing to recommend the products that they use and believe in and sometimes they can
even recommend specific stores that offer these products. A good breeder will even tell you some of the products that you
really do not need to waste your money on.
We are located in beautiful Niagara Falls, Ontario and we welcome visits but you
will need to call ahead to schedule an appointment. We do not sell animals to just anyone, therefore you will need to call
us (not email or text) so that we can have an open and honest discussion and learn more about one another. We don’t
schedule appointments, take deposits or commit to selling one of our pets to anyone unless we have talked to them first.
We hope you find the information on our site helpful. Your feedback is welcome and appreciated.
