Our vision & mission. We are passionate about pets and their families. As a worldwide leader of solutions and excellence in the pet industry, we’re committed to providing fun, trusted, quality products to enhance the lives of pets and their families.
Our story. It was 50 years ago that Petmate created the first dog kennel at our home office in Arlington, Texas. It’s our passion for pets that drove us then and continues today.
What started with kennels has grown to encompass a full line of products and solutions for the pet industry and, more importantly, pet families. Many of our products are made in that same factory that produced the world’s very first kennel.
Petmate, an international company, continues to produce many of our products in the USA at our manufacturing facilities in Arlington, Texas. We source much of the plastic we use in our manufacturing from our Spectrum Plastics Facility, also based in Arlington. It is at this award-winning manufacturing operation that we produce nearly 80 million pounds of resin each year. We purchase post-industrial, pre-consumer, recyclable materials to reduce our carbon footprint. We also utilize eco-friendly manufacturing techniques to ensure that our pets and their families have a beautiful world to play in.
We are proud that our manufacturing facility has been given the Edison Green Award, for being "a leader in globally recognizing, honoring and fostering innovation and innovators to create a positive impact in the world." At Petmate, we are committed to enhancing the lives of pets and their owners every day.
