Your pets have had your back during isolation, now it's time to have theirs. 

They might be the smallest members of our family, but there's no doubting the positive effects our pets can have on our day to day lives. Not only has it been alleged that owning a pet help reduce the risk of anxiety, ease symptoms of depression and even lower blood pressure, they also provide cuddles, companionship and the perfect reason to get out of the house for a spot of exercise every day. 

With all that our pets do for us every day, it's only fair we re-pay them with a little spoiling every now and then. We've put together our top tips for treating your favourite furry, feathered and finned friends, whilst also boosting your Velocity Points balance.

Something for them, AND something for you? It's paw-sible - and we're here to tell you how.

Shop online for your pet

A range of pet retailers via the Velocity e-Store
Points earn: Between 8 July and 22 July 2020 receive 4 Velocity Points per $1 spent (normally 2 Velocity Points per $1 spent1)

Our pets deserve the best. The best food, the best toys, the best accessories, the best grooming and health items... It can get a little overwhelming, not to mention time consuming. Shopping online for all your furry friends' needs means you can more easily browse, compare and save from the comfort of your own home - with the added advantage of not having to lug bulky items like food or cat litter around the shops (and the warmth of your best friend at your feet).

And when you shop online via the Velocity e-Store, not only will you have your pick from a range of pet retailers like My Pet Warehouse, Petbarn, PETstock and The Vet Shed, but you'll also earn 2 Velocity Points on every $1 spent1 on eligible purchases. 

Purr-fect.
