Our purpose is to make our world a happier place through the love of pets

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 every day.

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, alongside supporting the pet community with fundraising, donations and local events.


As animal lovers, the welfare of ALL animals is our top priority.

So we actively support a range of animal rescue charities that make a difference in your community, as well as helping them find forever homes through pet adoption activities.

See what local charites we are currently supporting.
