How we help
Perfect Pets is led by a mission to run a successful business ethically, while also giving back. We do this in three main ways:
1. We support ethical breeders and responsible pet ownership
The Perfect Pets website is a free platform that provides pet lovers with the information and support services they need to care for their pets. We believe in the power of educating pet lovers and connecting them with ethical breeders and pet-related businesses. Our services are playing a pivotal role in creating a better future for pets and people, where animal welfare is the highest priority.
2. We donate 50% of our annual profits
We are a contribution based, profit for purpose enterprise. This means we believe in running an ethical business as well as giving back. 50% of our annual profits go to helping support animal welfare initiatives, rescue groups, and wildlife conservation. On top of this, we run paid social media campaigns that have reached 1.8 million people to help these groups promote their message to the world. See our testimonials page to see what these groups say.
3. We help run a food donation program
Perfect Pets is proud to partner with The Petbarn Foundation, which was established in 2012 to enrich the lives of pets, animals and the people who love and need them. Together, we are assisting with the monthly distribution of pet food and supplies to rescues and shelters in need. By reducing, and in some cases eliminating, the cost of feeding at-risk pets, shelters can direct their resources to other necessities like vet care and rescue efforts.
In November 2019 we were able to assist farming communities struggling with the drought, and during the summer of 2019/20 we extended the program further to assist wildlife groups caring for wildlife rescued from the devastating fires.
With Covid 19 presenting new challenges in 2020, we will to continue to offer this very practical support to shelter and welfare groups.
"The animals at Lucky Stars Sanctuary would like to give a big shout out to Perfect Pets and Petbarn for their incredible donation of food for our rescue animals. All fundraising activities were cancelled due to COVID-19 so assistance with pigeon, chicken, dog and cat food was hugely appreciated. Thankyou!! This donation ensured that finances could be directed to other animals needs." Kerrie Carrol - Lucky Stars Sanctuary
Helping farmers in drought affected areas feed their working dogs and other pets:
"When every resource is stretched to the limit, supporting farmers with food for their pets is just one small way we can help. I’ve heard that a lot of farmers are being forced to surrender their dogs because they can’t afford to feed them... When farmers have four or five working dogs and they’ve had to let go of all their livestock, their options for keeping their dogs are limited. “I’m told this help with food could literally be a life saver for some dogs.” - Maria Arnold, Perfect Pets
These programs made possible thanks to:
