Specialty is our specialty

We’re committed to the pet specialty industry. We want to see everyone in our community—retailers, manufacturers, and brands —thrive. That’s why we work to organize, advocate, and lead; we’re nurturing a healthy pet specialty ecosystem and leveling the playing field against mass and online retailers. That means greater success for the brands and manufacturers dedicated to the pet specialty channel, including you.


We’re choosy by choice

We’re selective with our portfolio, and that pays off for you. We seek out inspired, innovative brands who care as much about the people and the independent pet retail community as we do, and retailers know it. They trust that we’ve carefully vetted everything we carry, and our seal of approval matters in the purchasing decisions they make every day. We’re committed to a small set of vendors and give each one the attention and support they deserve.
