About Pet Hero

Our Mission

The human-pet bond forms the foundation of Pet Hero’s existence. As pet people, we understand the love and joy that dogs and cats bring to your life yet we also recognise that to pets, we are often their whole lives. Thus, our online pet store aims to provide all the pet supplies you need to keep your animals as healthy and happy as they deserve to be. The convenience of buying your pet food and other pet products online and having them delivered to your door gives you more time to spend with your pets and enjoy that special bond.

Humble beginnings

Pet Hero launched in July 2015 with a squad of heroes that have assembled to sniff out the best food, nutrition, toys, accessories, supplements and more for dogs and cats.

Buying your pet food and accessories online from Pet Hero is not only what your dogs and cats would want you to do so that they get the awesome products they love without you having to leave the house, but there is something in it for you too. The online shopping experience provides unmatched convenience as you are able to browse our full range of pet supplies from the comfort of your home, 24/7. It also gives you the opportunity to have your pets on your lap or right by your side throughout the shopping process but best of all, our pet products are available at the best prices. That means you benefit from cheaper dog food, cheaper cat food and cheaper pet accessories without compromising on quality. It’s the same products you and your pets know and love, just at better prices. No catch!

What’s in it for you?

We stock a wide range of dog and cat food brands providing all the nutrition and nourishment your furry hero needs to live a long and healthy life. You can choose from the highest quality super premium pet food brands to the more affordable, yet still premium quality nutrition.

A healthy dog is a happy dog, so to assist with all the exercise and training we provide collars, leads, harnesses and a range of pet toys and accessories to make sure your pets are entertained and in great shape. Pet Hero provides all that your pets need or want and our best price commitment applies across the full range of dog and cat products that we stock.

Beyond the benefits of our best-priced pet supplies and the convenience we offer of making all these dog and cat products available online, we offer an efficient delivery service. Get your products delivered to your door quickly and conveniently so you have more quality time to spend with your pets. We will deliver your dog food, cat food and all other pet accessories to your door wherever it may be, be it your home address, work address or anywhere in between.
