Animates Albany


A little about us

At Animates, they love pets just as much as you do. When Animates opened their first store in Christchurch in 1996, their dream was to create a true pet superstore that could offer the complete pet experience, and become the champion of responsible pet ownership.

Since then, Animates has grown to include 20 stores nationwide, and at Animates Albany you can find everything you need for your pets – food, toys, educational books, glossy mags, health products, puppy training and loads of good advice! Most stores have an in-house veterinary service, and some even have a grooming parlour.

There are so many trwats and toys at this branch for me to chose for my bull dog. My bull dog destroys every toy that he eats and the staff at this branch helped me find the perfect toy for him!! They also do a great deal on toys where if you buy 3 you get one free. They have dog food there but i find it quite expensive. They have a great range of other animal things aswell

I love that we can drop in here with any pet problem and the staff are only too happy to help!  They are very knowledgable and helped us get out poor sick budgie back to full health within a couple of days.

I have been searching for a toy my bulldog couldnt destrot within seconds and they halped me find the right ones. They also have lots of advice on how to keep her cool on hot sumers days. Their stuff is pretty pricey but i think its great that you can buy 3 treats and get 1 for free.
