Meet the Team

Firstly, you’ve gotta be a good person to be a member of the Pet Direct team. We’re a team of animal lovers who treasure the relationships Kiwis have with their pets - because we have those relationships too!

Every single member of the Pet Direct team has a pet of their own - or is a proud godparent of a four-legged friend. There’s no situation too hairy, or question too curly, for us. We’re all ears!
