About Us

Who are we?

We are animal lovers.

We are leaders in the animal care industry.

And — most importantly — we are pet lovers. We love our pets and put them first in everything we do.

Petland was founded in Ohio in 1967 with the goal of being a destination for families to learn about pets and understand their needs. Since then, our pet store locations have expanded throughout the U.S. and internationally, but we have always maintained our emphasis on providing the highest standards of animal care.

For decades, we’ve been a leader in encouraging better standards for breeders. We also work hard to make sure our stores deliver the best care and customer service to help make sure our pets find loving homes. Finally, we’re active in helping all animals in our community with service programs that help place homeless pets in loving homes. We put our pets at the center of everything we do.

We’ve also made it our mission to make a difference in the communities we serve. Healthy pets have always been, and continue to be to this day, our number one priority.

Why did we make this site?

We’ve always been transparent about the policies and standards we maintain for our animals. Now, as we lead the industry and break new ground in animal welfare, we wanted to shed an even greater light on our practices and our dedication to the lives of animals.
