New Zealand's leading pet retail store. At Animates, our belief is that life is better with pets. We understand the joy when your dog greets you at the door or the comfort of your cat curled up on your lap. We understand the unconditional love that pets bring to our lives, each and everyday. We've dedicated ourselves to creating an awesome experience for people and their pets, to provide our customers with everything they need to become great pet parents, whether it is products; services and advice that they need. It's what has made Animates, New Zealand's leading pet retailer. To make your shopping experience easy and enjoyable, we've employed pet passionate staff and trained them to assist you in caring for your pet. You'll find your all your favourite brands both online and in store. Pet parents will find everything they need for their pets - high quality food items, animal medicines, flea treatments, fun and educational toys, kennels, hutches, cages & tanks, dog and cat grooming products, pet health supplements, pet shampoos and conditioners, and loads of good advice. In our eyes, the world is a better place with animals and the welfare of ALL animals is our top priority and so at Animates, we pride ourselves on the commitment we've made to pets by actively supporting SPCA pet adoptions and also helping those pets with special needs through the Animates Angels initiative.
