Just For Pets is Australia’s largest group of independent pet retailers. We proudly represent over 50 stores around the country who trade under their original shop names and actively support their local communities.

We love pets and it is our passion and purpose to help Australian pet owners have the best relationship with happy and healthy pets all their lives long. So we believe in empowering pet owners with the knowledge, services and quality brands they need to take great care of their pets.

Many of our stores have been owned and run by the same Aussie families for generations. Our experienced and highly trained staff are pet experts and can also refer pet owners to local independent vets. So for good old-fashioned friendly service and quality advice, come in and see one of our friendly pet experts. It’s free!

In November 2015, CEO Karen Justice, successfully took out 3 international Stevie Awards for women in business.  This followed wins earlier in the month where Just For Pets and our marketing consultant, won two national awards at the Australian Marketing Institute National Awards for Marketing Excellence 2015 including the category of Brand Extension and ultimate honour of Program of the Year against finalists including Coca-Cola, IBM and K-mart.

The awards were received in recognition of a successful new initiative providing a world-first concept in pet health care – the launch of a Pet Health Centre offering free six-point pet health checks in 40 of the group’s 70 stores across Australia.

Just For Pets also scored both Top Retailer and a joint-win of the Community Hero category in the recent SmartCompany Smart50 Business Awards 2015.
