Thinking differently about pet adoption

Unfortunately, many pets enter the rescue cycle due to no fault of their own. We want to encourage people to think differently about adoption. To give a pet and themselves a better life. Learn more about Adopt Different and our annual National Pet Adoption Month.  

Pet Adoption at PETstock

A long time ago, we made a choice not to sell dogs or cats in our stores

Instead, we’re advocates for pet adoption, and our stores proudly partner up with rescue groups in Australian and New Zealand communities to promote perfectly lovable rescue pets and just how great they are!
