Pet Happiness Is In Store

With pets in more than 60 percent of Oahu households, it’s no surprise that PetSmart feels right at home in the Islands. Since opening our first Hawaii store at the Town Center of Mililani in early February, we’ve been overjoyed by the outpouring of aloha from local residents (and pets).

As the largest specialty retailer of services and solutions for pets’ lifetime needs, we recognize that Hawaii is a special place. That is why our team of more than 20 associates includes former Hawaii residents who returned home after working for PetSmart on the Mainland, as well as six managers with a combined 55 years of residency in the Islands.

To help Hawaii “pet parents” – a phrase we use because we believe pets are members of the ohana – and pets lead happier lives, we offer more than 10,000 products, including exclusive brands such as Martha Stewart Pets, Bret Michaels Pets Rock Collection, Toys “R” Us Pets and GNC Pets. We also offer a full-service grooming salon and professional training for dogs.

We are proud to partner with local community organizations that reflect core values of PetSmart – enriching people’s lives through the power of pets and embracing diversity to promote understanding and inclusion.

We have partnered with American Red Cross in Hawaii to support disaster preparedness programs, as people consider pets in their preparedness plans. We also will be working with Family Promise of Hawaii to help homeless families keep their pets as they get back on their feet.

Through PetSmart Charities Inc., an independent 501(c)(3) nonprofit animal welfare organization and the largest funder of animal welfare efforts in North America, we have partnered with Hawaiian Humane Society and Oahu SPCA to facilitate in-store pet adoptions. Since opening our doors, PetSmart is proud to have helped 65 homeless cats and more than 50 dogs find forever homes.

PetSmart is located at 95-660 Lanikuhana Ave. in the Town Center of Mililani.
