Welcome to Pet Watch NJ where, if you’re thinking about adding a dog or cat to your family and have questions on how to find a reputable source, we may have the answers for you.
We care about animals, but we also care about keeping them and YOU, the consumer, or potential adopters, out of harm’s way. Unscrupulous pet dealers are constantly on the lookout for unsuspecting victims they can easily scam, defraud, and push you into buying or adopting a puppy or kitten that may have health or behavioral issues. You need to know the facts BEFORE you close the deal, before you walk out of a pet shop, breeder’s home, or pet supply shop with a “rescued” puppy.
Here you will find answers to some frequently asked questions such as:
  • What’s really behind pet dealers’ claims?
  • Is that rescue actually a puppy flipper or the real deal?
  • How does the pet lemon law protect me and my dog or cat?
  • Does New Jersey have puppy mills?
  • Are there Amish puppy mills?
  • Why does my neighbor have dozens of cats or dogs in her home?
  • What’s the difference between a breeder and a broker?
Our team has been voluntarily assisting animal lovers for over a dozen years, helping them understand their rights under the NJ puppy lemon law, as well as reporting on pet dealers who have been charged with, or found guilty of, animal abuse or violating NJ laws governing the sale of animals.
This website was created for YOU, the consumer, pet lovers, and anyone else concerned about companion animals.
