The opportunity to spend your days working around beautiful animals and people who love them seems like it would be enough of a benefit, right? But when you join our pack as a full or part-time staff member (working a minimum of 20 hours per week effective on the first of the month following 30 days of employment), we offer you even more! We take care of our team members as they take care of the animals we love! 

  • Medical/Dental/Vision: We contribute toward your premiums! We even give you a choice on medical: copay vs. higher deductible. You decide!

  • Just in case that’s not enough, we even offer supplemental coverage (long-term disability, accident, cancer, and more) available through Aflac. 

  • Life Insurance? Covered 100%…by US!

  • We’re already thinking about your retirement too. A 401k Retirement Plan can be enrolled in quarterly, once you have completed 500 worked hours and 6 months of employment with us! You must be 21 years of age to participate.  We match 50% up to 2% of your gross annual income.  

  • Holidays: We recognize 10, and, because you’re a VIP in our eyes, we think your birthday is a holiday too! So make that 11 PAID HOLIDAYS

  • Added Incentives

    We’re still not done! There’s more! MUCH more!

    • Lipsey Veterinary Clinic discount: Let us help you care for your pets, providing top veterinary care right at our location.

    • Pet food/supply discount: Through Purina for Professionals, we’ll help you supply your pets’ other needs as well!

    • Petique employee discount: Enjoy a built-in discount in our store! You don’t even need a coupon!

    • Continuing education? We’re firm believers in it…so much so that we’ll pay for our employees seeking continued education opportunities!

    • Student loans got you down? The SPCA offers a student loan repayment program!

    • Does your job here include your own office space? Well, then, it would just be wrong for you to leave your pet home. Bring your pet to work with you!

    • Preference for pet adoptions.
      Let us state that again.
      PREFERENCE FOR PET ADOPTIONS. See an animal you just can’t live without? We’ll give you preference to make that animal your own!

There's never been a better time to join our pack!
