Walmart is Helping Pets Live Better, Too
Walmart News | May 3, 2021
This National Pet Month, Walmart is excited to celebrate all the pets and all fellow pet parents. A positive outcome from the pandemic has been a surge in pet adoptions and fostering, with more than 11 million U.S. households getting a new pet.
Melody Richard, Vice President, Pets, Walmart shares "With a family that includes four members with four legs, I know the importance of giving your pets the very best. And Walmart does, too."
From healthy treats to pet beds containing recycled mattresses, Walmart is working to add to the expansive pet assortment. That includes new summer pet gear, exclusive supplements from Milk Bone and a new variety of pet beds from exclusive Vibrant Life product line. Walmart is also launching a new, vet-formulated dog and cat food line from their exclusive, private-label Pure Balance brand called PRO+, at a price point that is lower than similar premium pet food items.
Walmart has seen strong growth across durables, as customers welcome new kittens and dogs to the family. Along with a great response to Walmart's expanded offering of pet services. Since launching last November, customers have loved the convenience and affordability of Walmart Pet Care. You can find personalized pet insurance through Walmart Pet Insurance, book a pet sitter with Rover or easily fill your pooch’s prescription with Walmart PetRx.
