We take a lot of inspiration from our pets. Their companionship, intelligence and energy are what motivate us to bring the best of ourselves to work each day. As our associates are focused on ensuring pets’ lives are happy and healthy, we’re busy making sure every corner of our organization is a happy and healthy place to work, too.

- Do the right thing
For me, the most important value is to do the right thing, absolutely. It’s our north star. If people are always trying to do the right thing, then their hearts are always in the right place. And our business is all about heart and passion.

PetSmart Gives Back
When you join PetSmart, you'll join thousands of proud associates who volunteer and donate their time, money and supplies to help communities across the country. Each year, PetSmart encourages associates to make charitable contributions to these nonprofit organizations:
Associate Assistance Foundation
Helping our fellow associates through challenging times is an important part of our culture. Through our A.A.F., we can provide emergency financial support to our associates and their families suffering unexpected hardships.
Giving to United Way supports the community in three impactful ways: ensuring children and youth succeed, increasing financial stability, and helping to end hunger and homelessness.
Animal Assisted Therapy
PetSmart and the Phoenix Children's Hospital provide the "Paws Can Heal" Animal-Assisted Therapy Program to patients and their families for therapeutic purposes. Animal-assisted therapy acts as a catalyst to motivate patients to help themselves.
