MyPetshop began life a number of years ago as a novel way of enabling pet lovers to take the hassle out of purchasing products for their pets. We acquired the business in 2017, as we were excited about the concept of offering pet owners in far-flung parts of the country the opportunity to obtain quality pet products fairly effortlessly.
We began by catering to the general market that was faithfully served by the previous owners. Over time, our journey led us to notice that a new type of pet owner was emerging, one that had a particular love and passion for small animals such as rabbits, guinea pigs, rats and the like. We decided to place most of our focus on meeting the needs of this group of pet lovers. Consequently, we have customers from many parts of South Africa looking to us to provide the unique products needed by their furry friends.
Of course, we still wish to serve cat, dog and bird owners who need quick, convenient access to items that serve particular purposes and are often not available elsewhere. Hence, we provide a select range of these products.
The dog has got more fun out of Man than Man has got out of the dog, for the clearly demonstrable reason that Man is the more laughable of the two animals.
Animals are reliable, many full of love, true in their affections, predictable in their actions, grateful and loyal. Difficult standards for people to live up to.
If having a soul means being able to feel love and loyalty and gratitude, then animals are better off than a lot of humans and can love you more than you love yourself.
Discipline isn’t about showing a dog who’s boss, it’s about taking responsibility for a living creature you have brought into your world.
An animal’s eyes have the power to speak a great language.
Our perfect companions never have fewer than four feet.
