Pet owners can now get delivery… for their pets

With many restaurants struggling due to the pandemic, Canadians have taken to ordering delivery from local restaurants to help support them during this difficult time.

However, did you know you can now order delivery for your pet?

Starting October 15, PetSmart announced it will be offering on-demand, same-day delivery service through DoorDash.

As of mid-October, pet owners can place an order for same-day delivery on or via the PetSmart mobile app, which will then be dropped off by a DoorDash delivery driver via contact-less delivery (the driver will leave the order in a safe, secure location designated by the customer).

“We’re here to provide Canadian pet parents with the essential products they need, so they can shop with us safely, securely and in a way that fits their lifestyle,” Alan Blundell, President of PetSmart Canada, said in a news release. “We’re excited to partner with DoorDash to provide Canadians with another great option that makes the PetSmart shopping experience even more convenient and accessible.”

“The pandemic has pulled the future forward for retail, where changes that once might have taken three years have instead happened in three months,” Casey North, vice president of DoorDash Drive, said in the same release. “We’re thrilled to partner with PetSmart Canada, marking our entry into the Canadian pet retail space, to power their store-to-door delivery experience and provide pet owners with the pet essentials they need on demand.”
