Sometimes when you walk into someone’s house for the first time, you can immediately tell that they have pets.
Some people are much better at maintaining that pet smell than others.
Walking into a pet store with no air conditioner is a different story. That is the worst smell you will ever smell. Imagine this- the dirtiest person you know and add 10 dogs and 10 cats, and 40 hamsters. The smell can be unbearing. When there is no AC in the building to circulate the air and cool the pets, it makes for an even worse experience. I enjoy going to pet stores and looking at the cute animals. Sometimes, it is nice to be able to pick them up and play with them if you are sad. Once I walked into a pet store with no AC and I immediately left. The smell of urine and sweaty dogs was absolutely repulsive. When the air conditioner is broken at a place that sells lives animals, they are required to have it repaired within a certain time frame. For some people, this can be very difficult if they are not selling enough cat food in a month. AC repairs can be very expensive and if business owners do not have funds set aside for this, they will be forced to shut down. The animals will have to go somewhere where they are comfortable and will receive the care and attention they deserve. A pet store without air conditioning is unacceptable.
