Pet Parents® Company Values:
Pets Are Family
We treat our pets just like we treat our humans. We believe pets deserve their own toy box. We spend more money on our pet’s haircuts than our own. Pictures of them take up more space on our phones than selfies. We research and care about what goes into our pets’ bodies. We celebrate their birth and adoption days. We cherish every moment we are blessed with their companionship.
We are dog people. We are cat people. We are pet people. Pets are family.
Man’s Best Friend
Whether it’s our customers or our pack, we value our relationships and always go above and beyond. We are caring and thoughtful about our customer’s experience. We strive to surprise and “WOW” with action.
Our team, known as our pack, relies on each other in order to accomplish our common goals. This means, keeping ourselves & each other accountable, being transparent, communicating clearly, and always thinking of others.
My Favorite Toy
Dogs are passionate about their favorite toy, bone, ball, teddy, stuffed porcupine, you name it. We get excited when we talk about the work we do. We love our favorite ball and love playing with it all day. We “nerd out” on the details. We are not waiting for the clock to hit 5pm. We leave it all out in the yard - we don’t half-a**. Our pack is passionate.
Every Sniff Matters
We are not surface level thinkers. We sniff & analyze everything, think deeply about variables and piece together different smells to form strategies, plans, and conclusions.
We are continuously questioning everything. Why do we do it this way? How do our customers feel? How can we do better?
We are the top dogs of our domains, if we’re not today, we will be and will work harder than the next to make it happen. We take ownership of our work and are constantly improving. We go the extra mile to push the boundaries to stay on top.
We do more with less. We’re resourceful. We work with a sense of urgency, but we work smarter, not just harder. We add value to everything we do, to move the needle.
Be A Tail-Wagger
Dogs are always excited, energetic, and happy - their tails always wag. We aspire to be tail-waggers like them. We are positive, no matter the situation. We find & embrace the good in all outcomes. Even if we piddle on the floor, we learn from our mistakes and continue on. We are playful and fun. We are always down for a game of fetch.
We know this is work, but we like to have a doggone good time doing it.
About Pet Parents®:
We were born from a pain point with our own pets. We leaped onto the scene at the beginning of 2016, at least doubling every year since. In 2020, Inc. ranked Pet Parents® as the #1 fastest growing company in Iowa, #378 of the Inc. 5000 fastest growing companies in America, also gaining us #1 fastest growing pet products company in the US.
Our brands and product lines are at the crossing of two macro pet industry trends, the humanization of pets, and a focus on pet healthcare. The stars have aligned for us and we're clawing our way to seize this moment.
We love, love, love what we do and what our company stands for – and we get excited to show that through our hard work.
We're a scrappy group of pet-loving bada**es looking for fellow top dogs to join our pack. Will it be you?
