“We believe that pets’ needs are not one size fits all and that there are manyunmet needs in Australia, so we intend to meet them by sourcing the bestproducts both locally and internationally.
“We will be building our range dramatically over the next couple of yearsfocusing on growing several categories, especially our premium range of dogand cat food, beds, clothes, technology, training and containment.”

“Pet Circle has evolved from a pioneer online retailer to a disruptive forcein the pet supply industry that is enabling a better experience for pet ownersby offering a better range, price and advice.
