Who We Are

let's get to know each other

When it comes to pets, we’re obsessed. There’s nothing we wouldn’t do for our pets, because there’s nothing they wouldn’t do for us. Our associates are devoted to ensuring that pets’ lives are happy and healthy. So naturally, we’re devoted to making sure that PetSmart is a happy and healthy place to work, too.


Say hi to our CEO, J.K. Symancyk!(and Stella and Harper!)

One of the most inspiring things about PetSmart is that everything we do aligns with our mission. We love pets and are committed to providing the products, services, connections and care that pet parents and pets need in every stage of life. This passion for pets is an authentic part of who we are and a driving force in our business. - J.K. Symancyk, President and CEO
