OUR MISSION
At Petco, our DEI mission is built on the key pillar of our values that we're all welcome as we are. This means we support Petco partners in being their whole, authentic selves every day. It means we listen and communicate honestly and clearly. We value each other's unique talents and perspectives. And we ensure each of us creates a workplace that is welcoming, respectful, and safe for all.
OUR COMMITMENT
At Petco, we are committed to creating an inclusive, diverse, and equitable culture where our partners are safe, accepted, and welcome as they are. This objective extends to the businesses we partner with, our customers, and the communities we serve.  We are proud of the continued progress we are making on our diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) agenda as we deliver our purpose to improve the lives of pets and each other.
SUPPORTING OUR PARTNERS
Partner Resource Groups (PRGs) give an opportunity for diverse groups
to exchange ideas, build connections and promote inclusive activities.
  

STORIES FROM OUR COMMUNITY

" I joined PetContigo because it provides me with the opportunity to learn, communicate and celebrate how the Latine community influences the work we do. Our PRGs in general help us raise empathy and understanding across our Petco partner community and customers, which can ultimately result in positive actionable changes in the short and long term. "

"While there is always a lot of different personalities, partners get along well and are always accepting of new partners. That, and the ability to freely express ourselves through our hair and other things, like safe for work piercings and tattoos, the things that make us who we are."

"I've worked for many individuals and corporations, not one of them has made me feel like I belong, recognized my efforts, and given me extensive tools and knowledge to learn my job the way Petco has. I am so grateful to work for a company that cares as much about their people as they do their guests."
