DCs Give Back

Join the PetSmart distribution center team, and you’ll find yourself working alongside some of the most caring colleagues around. They’re the kind of people who will go the extra mile to help the communities they serve. Whether caring for pets in shelters, participating in adoption events, or saving the lives of homeless pets, their dedication shines brightly.

Our DC associates volunteered to create dog runs and dog houses at a domestic abuse shelter, so victims could keep their pets and see them when they needed that companionship the most.

I started as a temp in our DCs twelve years ago, and have been able to navigate my way through different departments and levels of leadership. I continue to do what I love, in a culture that promotes development!
