PetSmart is its 25th anniversary this year! Over the years, PetSmart has reimaged the pet retail shopping experience by providing a huge array of pet-care products and services under one roof and initiating a number of industry trends including developing exclusive product lines such as Martha Stewart Pets™, GNC Pets™, Marvel Entertainment, Toys “R” Us®, and, recently, Bret Michaels Pets Rock™.
Along with a large assortment of pet foods focused on natural ingredients, PetSmart offers grooming salons in every store and has become the largest home-away-from-home for pets by creating PetsHotel® and Doggie Day CampSM boarding services. And in 1994 PetSmart partnered with Banfield Pet Hospital® to offer veterinarian care centers that are now in more than 800 stores.
Phoenix-based PetSmart currently has 1,249 stores in North America employing over 50,000 employees.
Through PetSmart Charities, Inc., an independent 501(c)(3) non-profit initiative, PetSmart has donated more than $165 million in grants and program to animal welfare organizations and has been responsible for placing more than 5 million homeless pets in loving homes through in-store adoptions.
