Pet.kiwi was started by a vet and a team of vet nurses and animal rescue volunteers. Having had many years in the veterinary and pet industries, we wanted to bring new and exciting products into the market and most of all, we want an innovative company that will benefit homeless animals.
Our mission was to run a business that could sustain a free vaccination service for animal rescue shelters in New Zealand, and so far in our first two years of business we have vaccinated hundreds of rescued dogs and cats.
We do not stock live animals to sell in our Grey Lynn store, as we believe the shelters are too full of animals needing homes already. Instead, we host adoption days and events to help find homes for rescue animals.
As of 2021, we became the first pet store in New Zealand to achieve living wage employer accreditation. We are very proud to achieve this as a young business, and a local family owned one too! We take the very best care of our pets, and with our staff as well.
Shop with Pet.kiwi for all your pet goods and you will be helping to support a local company and our charity programme.
