Animals make the world a better place, and as they play such an important part in our lives, the care of ALL animals is our highest priority!

At Animates we believe that there are five foundations of pet care, and we are committed to providing the best pet products, advice and service to anyone who owns/looks after an animal to ensure their needs are meet and every animal in NZ can live happy and healthy lives.

The Five Foundations of pet care are:​

  1. Food and Water:  All animals need clean water and a well-balanced, healthy diet.   
  2. Shelter: All animals should live in a comfortable place to keep them healthy and happy. All animals need shelter and a comfortable resting area.   
  3. Medical Care: All animals should be taken to a vet if they are sick or injured and given regular health checks.   
  4. Exercise: All animals need enough space to move around and have regular exercise.   
  5. Love and Understanding: All animals deserve to be happy and live without too much stress.



 

The second foundation of pet care is making sure all animals have the right shelter to keep them safe & healthy!

Our cats need enough space to happily roam around - to rest or hide, both high & low. Comfortable bedding provides your furry friend with a safe space.

Travelling can be extremely uncomfortable for cats so it can be helpful to provide them with the right shelter while you are away. Explore our range and cattery to help support your cats' shelter.
