Pet-friendly Work Environments
We believe pets have the power to change peoples’ lives for the better. For more than 55 years, we’ve fostered a community of pets and pet lovers, deepening our connections and celebrating the bonds between us. We are committed to our partners, who nurture the pet-human relationship in our communities every day through their unparalleled passion and expertise.
Petco partners play an important role in fostering the pet-human connection in our communities every day through their unparalleled expertise. Our culture is friendly, outgoing, and collaborative. We welcome new and improved thinking, and we value people who have a real passion for both pets and pet parents. We do our best to provide a fulfilling work environment for our partners. We want them to enjoy coming to work, to feel included, fulfilled and supported.

National Pets at Work Day:
Petco is focused on improving the lives of pets, pet parents and our own Petco partners – and we believe that translates to the workplace, too. In 2016, we established April 19 as National Pets at Work Day to help raise awareness for the benefits of pet-friendly workspaces. A growing body of scientific research shows having a pet – or even interacting with one – has positive effects on both animals and people. To us, carrying those effects into the workplace, where most of us spend the majority of our waking hours, is a no-brainer.
Whether in a pet care center or support center office, all of us at Petco are lucky to spend our days working with and for pets of all sizes, breeds and species – and we think that should be the case in as many workplaces as possible. That’s exactly what National Pets at Work Day is all about.
Our Petco partners are Petco’s most valuable asset. Petco partners who lose a beloved pet receive pet bereavement time because we recognize that pets are also family members.
