pets @ work

As a leader in the pet specialty category for more than 50 years, Petco believes that healthier pets make happier people – which makes the world a better place. And we believe that translates to the workplace, too. In 2016, Petco established National Pets @ Work Day on April 19 to highlight the benefits of having pets in the workplace.

A growing body of scientific research shows that having a pet – or even just interacting with one – has positive effects on both animals and people. We think carrying those effects into the workplace, where most of us spend the majority of our waking hours, is a no-brainer.
