about petco

With more than 50 years of service to pet parents, Petco is a leading pet specialty retailer that obsesses about delivering health and happy experiences for pets and the people who love them. We do this by providing the products, services, advice and experiences that keep pets physically fit, mentally alert, socially engaged and emotionally happy.  

Everything we do is guided by our vision:

Healthier Pets. Happier People. Better World.

We employ more than 26,000 partners and operate more than 1,500 Petco locations across the U.S., Mexico and Puerto Rico, including more than 65 Unleashed by Petco locations, a smaller format neighborhood shop; complete pet care services and veterinary advice through PetCoach; and petco.com.

The Petco Foundation, an independent nonprofit organization, has invested more than $250 million since it was created in 1999 to help promote and improve the welfare of companion animals. In conjunction with the Foundation, we work with and support thousands of local animal welfare groups across the country and, through in-store adoption events, help find homes for more than 400,000 animals every year.
