Petco Neighborhood Farm & Pet Supply pet care centers are stand-alone retail locations that will be strategically and conveniently situated at the heart of small-town and rural communities. Aside from offering reliable pet care services and a curated assortment of high-quality pet care products that Petco is known for, these neighborhood locations will also serve as one-stop shops for health and wellness solutions for farm animals such as horses, cows, pigs, sheep, goats, and more.

Services that will be offered at Petco Neighborhood Farm & Pet Supply locations include mobile vaccination and grooming. There will also be self-service stations where owners can wash their farm animals. As is the case at some existing Petco outlets, these neighborhood stores will also sell companion animals like guinea pigs, hamsters, birds, reptiles, and amphibians. They will also offer same-day delivery and curbside pickup just like many Petco city stores.

Petco’s neighborhood locations will also serve as places for safe community gathering and connection. Each location will offer local events and an in-store community board to support safe, pet-friendly interaction among neighbors. Lastly, in partnership with Petco Love (formerly Petco Foundation), these pet care centers will offer adoption services and other health and wellness programs to further support local pets.
