Today - With more than 55 years of service to pet parents, Petco is a category-defining health and wellness company focused on improving the lives of pets, pet parents and our own Petco partners. The company has committed to providing accessible, affordable and convenient veterinary care via its rapidly growing network of more than 100 full-service in-store vet hospitals. In September 2020, the company launches Vital Care, a groundbreaking paid wellness plan providing pet parents with a convenient, affordable way to meet pets’ routine wellness needs. In October, Petco announces it has stopped selling specific electronic “shock” collars, strengthening the company’s commitment to positive reinforcement training methods. Petco also launches a new look that boldly declares “Petco, The Health + Wellness Co” and reflects Petco’s more than 55-year journey to becoming a health and wellness company. Petco also undergoes a complete redesign of petco.com and the Petco app to support digital-first health and wellness resources and solutions for pets and pet parents, including online appointment booking, curbside pickup, same day delivery, a digital food advisor tool and more.
In April 2021, the Petco Foundation announced it would become Petco Love, a nonprofit changing lives by making communities and pet families closer, stronger, and healthier. Since its founding in 1999, Petco Love has empowered more than 4,000 animal welfare organizations by investing nearly $300 million in adoption and other lifesaving efforts.
