PHOENIX — PetSmart is making a list and checking it twice in an effort to provide pet owners with everything they need this holiday season. The retailer’s festive offerings include advent calendars for pets, holiday-themed treats, and other seasonal products.
PetSmart will stock three advent calendars under the Merry & Bright brand, including one for dogs, one for cats, and one for small pets like rabbits, hamsters and guinea pigs. Merry & Bright will also offer its Snow Adorable Sprinkel Donuts Cookie Dog Treats, Santa’s Favorite Cookie Decorating Kit, and The Nice List Bird Treat.
The retailer is also offering seasonal add-ons for grooming services, price-conscious holiday toys and apparel, and festive habitat décor for fish and reptiles.
Aside from these themed products, the retailer will also sell Chance & Friends plush toys, with $1 from each sale going toward PetSmart’s animal welfare nonprofit, PetSmart Charities.
"During the holidays, people want to celebrate and shower their friends and family members, including their pets, with love and meaningful gifts,” said Stacia Andersen, chief customer officer at PetSmart. “It's also the time of year we come together to give back to our local communities. We know that this year, families are seeking out value without sacrificing on quality and delights.
“I'm proud that our holiday collection includes fresh and irresistible products at price points that make it easy for people to include their pets in all their holiday traditions,” Andersen added. “And, in the spirit of the season, through our Chance & Friends collection, pet parents can give their pets gifts and give back by supporting PetSmart Charities' mission to make the world a better place for pets."
Whether naughty or nice, PetSmart hopes its holiday assortment will keep pets — and their owners —jingling all the way.
