Our new show tank!

If you follow us on Facebook, you will know that we have recently set up a new tank behind our counter at the store.   It is a 120 gallon freshwater tank, heavily planted with live plants.  We designed this tank as a home for discus.  Along with the four discus, it houses: silver hatchet fish, neon tetras, German rams, upside down catfish, corydoras, otocinclus, a bristlenose pleco, and a pencil catfish.

If you haven’t had a chance to swing by the store and take a look, you really should.  The plants are thriving and the fish seem happy; we’ve even had a pair of the German rams lay eggs already!

Big Vic the Great Dane

Saturday, February 8th we were lucky enough to meet an amazing dog that was in need. Big Vic, a 117 pound great dane, ended up in our care at the pet store after being a victim of a dog flipping case. Dog flipping is a problem in Kansas City where people either steal dogs and sell them, buy dogs and resell them, or irresponsibly breed dogs to sell on Craigslist. Who knows how many times this poor guy was passed around before he ended up with us here at City Pets. Our staff rallied around this gentle giant to make sure he would end up in caring hands. We were able to get him placed with a foster through Fur Ever Friends in Madison, KS. He underwent his basic vetting through Tomahawk Animal Hospital and will be available for adoption after he is given a clean bill of health.

Thank you to everyone that helped: Andrea, Kansas City Pet Project, Danita with Fur Ever Friends, Tomahawk Animal Hostpital and to everyone who helped us figure out Big Vic’s story.

If you would like to donate to help with Big Vic’s medical bills, you can do so through Fur Ever Friends’ PayPal account with the email dognme@madtel.net. Just mention the donation is in honor of Big Vic in the comment section.
